COLLECTION AND TRANSPORT
Our services are provided nation-wide and we collect all types of IT equipment from schools, businesses and institutions. We simplify the process for our clients so as to have equipment valued where rebates are applicable and to book collections online. Collections can be made from various locations and offices where required, providing a uniform E-waste removal service.
Once equipment is received, it is scanned and recorded into our internal system. Additionally, details of the equipment, such as asset tags, serial numbers and asset identifiers, can be recorded as per client requirement for later reporting. The process also grades equipment for the recycling and refurbishing process as requested by clients. This process sees that all labels and client – specific markings are removed and destroyed.
· SECURE DATA DESTRUCTION SERVICES
The influx of digital data has increased the need for secure data wiping and physical destruction of media. We do this by data wiping all media devices using military grade wiping software and are re-checked after the process to verify data destruction. In the event a device fails the wiping process – the device is degaussed and physically impaired to ensure that no data is accessible. Clients can even choose various methods of data destruction to suit their ICT reporting requirements.
· CERTIFICATION AND REPORTING
Once the assets have been booked-in to our system and data wiped, we generate reports to the clients based on their requirement. Reporting is available as simplified or detailed as the client requires and includes certificates of recycling and disposal of the equipment. Rebates are also paid to the client for working equipment where applicable.
·· E-WASTE RECYCLING
IT Equipment -
Unscrew/unclip all covers
If fitted, remove batteries and segregate by chemistry
Remove and separate all components into bulka bags or boxes for processing, making
sure each type of material is weighed and recorded onto the existing CRF. Some
components might need further separation into grades/classes depending on quality
If hard drive or storage media is removed, check if secure data destruction is required
Separate and weigh all plastic, metal, glass and cardboard/paper for local recycling
Separate and weigh toner and Ink for further processing
Non IT Equipment -
If units can be disassembled, process as per IT Equipment above
If units cannot be disassembled, separate and weigh each type of product and record
weights onto the existing CRF. These will be sent for further processing locally or OS
Other eWaste such as GPS units and digital cameras will also be dismantled and/or
destroyed if required. This might involve crushing or shredding
Batteries (all chemistries) -
Batteries should NOT be disassembled further as they present a health risk. These should remain palletised, boxed or bagged and sent for local processing
