FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT TO DO WITH YOUR OLD COMPUTERS AND E-WASTE
So your organisation has just upgraded to the latest technology and you are now left with the need to dispose off computers, smart devices and accessories. Below are some of the ways that you can organise to dispose of your Electronic Waste (E-waste).
CAN YOU DISPOSE IT EQUIPMENT IN GENERAL RUBBISH?
Disposing of E-waste with general or household rubbish, is definitely not a good idea and councils are quite clear that they are not to be placed in wheelie collection bins. The reason for this is that all household and general rubbish are taken to to the tips and added to landfill. E-waste thrown in along with general rubbish is not properly treated and is a perfect waste of material resources that can be recycled. You have just a few devices to be recycled, what can you do? Contact us and we would be happy to assist you with the proper disposal of old equipment and devices.
WHAT HAPPENS TO DATA AND INFORMATION ON YOUR HARD DRIVE?
Never dispose of your computing equipment without properly deleting your information of it. The idea that someone else has access to your personal information and data is not comforting in any manner. Make sure to follow the manufacturers instructions to remove data from your devices and equipment before disposal. Lost the instructions or do not know how to dispose of the information, contact us and we will provide secure data wiping services for you. If you are a business, it is specially important for you to protect the information of your business, clients and employees under the Privacy Act and ensure that your old devices are securely wiped and disposed.
SHOULD WE STORE AWAY COMPUTERS FOR A 'RAINY DAY'?
Storing away equipment that needs to be disposed is definitely not the best way to deal with dated equipment. Most decommissioned equipment have a value and you may be able to recover some money by having the equipment valued, data wiped and sold for refurbishing! Additionally equipment that is stored up loses value, takes up precious storage and is a problem that is waiting to be dealt with later. If you have replaced equipment and need a valuation on what you could recover on the equipment, contact us and we can provide you a quote on the same day!
CAN WE HELP CHARITIES WITH THE PROCEEDS FROM OUR REBATES OR IT DISPOSAL?
So you have equipment that you are disposing but you want to help a noble and worthy cause? Whether you are a business, educational institution or household, charity does begin at “home”. If you are looking to donate equipment that you are disposing of - contact us and we can help you organise this for the charity of your choice. We make sure that the equipment is securely wiped and refurbished so that is can be used safely. Alternatively, we can assist you in making a charitable donation from the rebate of disposed equipment to the organisation of your choice!
As a business we support a number of charitable organisations and christian ministries with refurbished equipment and donations. Please feel free to contact us as to how we can make your “green” solutions work for charitable organisations!
