What exactly is E-Waste?
E-Waste is exactly how it sound – electronic waste. Obsolete or out of date products like computers, laptops, phones, monitors, TVs, etc. Anything that is electronic and is no longer needed is considered to be E-Waste.
Throw Out, Recycle or Reuse?
Over 70% of devices disposed of unsafely contain personally identifiable information (PII), personal and sensitive business data. This opens you up to identity theft, privacy issues, intellectual property, business intelligence, financial reports and even trade secrets.
E-waste, when left in the hot Australian sun, heats up and releases damaging, toxic chemicals into the air and damaging the atmosphere where we reside. This is one of the biggest impacts to the environment. When left to landfills, e-waste toxins seep into the groundwater, and pollute drinking water, rivers and oceans. This is a major issue in developing countries where a lot of the e-waste is sent.
So, again, to recycle or reuse these components safely and securely makes sure we are helping our planet and each other. If the computers can be wiped and set back to “Factory settings” we can then send them to underdeveloped communities and countries so they are able to learn and grow as we are as privileged to do. This makes our task a great one, as we are able to help the planet and others just by emptying out the old shed full of old electronics!
So where do we appear?
Australia wide, all you need do is call us and we will organise one of our drivers to come and collect the products and take them away for you.
