Waste data vary over time according to the quantities and types of waste. The most important item of data is the ratio between waste produced and delivered for recycling/recovery, which reached a significant level.

ICT can accelerate the obsolescence of products and require the resulting technological waste to be managed. TIM has entered into contracts with companies specialised in handling used, faulty and end-of-life products, with the aim of reclaiming components and raw materials and at the same time obtaining tangible economic benefits deriving from their recovery.

The most significant figure is that of the ratio of waste produced and that sent for recycling/recovery, which remains at a high level.
