“E-waste is one of the fastest growing waste streams globally”
What is e-waste recycling?
E-waste is an acronym for “Electronic Waste”, electronic waste refers to electronic equipment that is redundant (defective or really old), it encompasses anything from computers, printers, computer screens, telephones and I.T. peripherals etc. Our electronic waste recycling services ensure that you safely dispose of these redundant I.T. Assets.
E-waste poses a risk for your organisation:
Costly to store
Renders the space that it occupies unproductive
Poses a security risk, as it might attract thieves
Creates environmental issues as it’s considered hazardous so thus must be handled accordingly (as per local and national waste management legislation).
We offer free collection of e-waste from organisations and we compile a recycling certificate for every collection. The e-waste recovered is dismantled with the various materials (plastic, metal) and components (pc boards, gpu’s, ram, roms etc.) are delivered to our accredited downstream partners for further processing.
Electric & Electronic Waste Recycling Process
Each truckload delivered to the dismantling facility will be weighed, so that we can get the mass of the equipment collected.
All items will be sorted as per their varying categories: e.g. monitors; pc’s, keyboards, mice, heaters etc.
All barcodes will be removed at the facility, if we have not done so at the client premises. Barcodes will be destroyed by way of shredding.
All hard drives will be removed from the client’s computer boxes, hard drives will be sanitised using data erasure software, before being taken to metal processing partners, who would further shred the hard drives
All defective equipment will be stripped and dismantled as per the categories of materials and components to be delivered to accredited downstream vendors e.g. printed circuit boards, power supply units, monitors, scrap ferrous and non-ferrous metals, abs plastic etc.
Downstream vendors further process items through granulation, crushing, shredding, melting etc. dependent on the type of materials and components being processed.
None of the equipment recovered will be illegally dumped or incinerated.
Once we have completed the processing of the equipment the client will be provided with a recycling certificate.
