Contribute to a better future

Bring you expired and damaged cards to Caixa for recycling.

Recycling of cards

You don't know what to do with expired and damaged cards or cards that you no longer use?
Bring them to a Caixa Branch for recycling and they will be turned into equipment for the community.

The Environmental Management System, a project integrated into Caixa's Sustainability Program, has been striving to reduce the environmental impact of its activity, implementing various initiatives in relevant areas: energy, water, CO2 emissions, waste, material consumption, among others. Aware of the importance of managing waste in an efficient way, Caixa identified the development of a recycling circuit for expired or damaged cards as an opportunity for improvement. Thanks to this initiative, bank cards (expired or at the end of their service lives) and non-bank cards (for example, loyalty cards made of plastic), can be valued through plastic recycling..

Recycling of cards

We count on your support!

Caixa is committed to develop innovative approaches to maximize the recovery of waste, turning them into equipment that has a positive impact on the community and the environment. Bring the cards you no longer use to any Caixa branch for recycling. We guarantee the confidentiality of your card's data and we contribute to environmental protection through plastic recycling. Together and with small gestures, we can all contribute to a better future.

The PVC waste resulting from the destruction of these cards is used in the manufacture of urban furniture items made from 100% recycled plastic. This project is developed in partnership with Extruplás, the company responsible for collecting and recycling the cards, as well as for manufacturing the urban furniture items that Caixa offers to welfare institutions.

The first deliveries of urban furniture resulting from the recycling of bank cards were made to two Private Social Solidarity Institutions (IPSS) focused on children and senior citizens identified by ENTRAJUDA.
