Disposing of your IT Assets the greener way.

The world has become a place where we rely on electronics to run our lives and with this need comes more and more e-waste. Electronic waste (e-waste) is one of the fastest growing waste streams around the world. Although we as a nation are trying to be pro-active, the reality is that most redundant electronic equipment is being landfilled.

But it doesn’t have to be this way.

At Recytech we offer businesses another way to dispose of their IT assets in a eco friendly way.

Some basic facts on…

Monitor recycling

E-WASTE

RECYCLE THE GREENER WAY

a CRT monitor can contain up to 3Kg of lead. If this is just dumped in a landfill it could pose a serious health hazard, as the lead could contaminate land, water and air.

LANDFILL

THINK BEFORE YOU DUMP

It is estimated that more than 400 million pieces of electronic waste are dumped in New Zealand each year, less than 20% of which is recycled(zerowaste.co.nz).

TOXIC WASTE

TOXIC TO OUR ENVIRONMENT

e-waste accounts for approx 2% of the total waste in New Zealand landfills, however it also accounts for a staggering 70% of the total toxic waste (zerowaste.co.nz).

Re-using electronic equipment…

We, like everyone else, know the importance of recycling as efficiently as possible and we like to think that we can re-use most of our IT equipment and give it another life. There are many charities, small business, schools and end users that find great value in second-hand equipment both in NZ and offshore.

At Recytech we encourage companies and organisations to re-sell their IT equipment so we can recycle it the greener way. However, there are times when re-using the equipment is not possible due to the equipment being obsolete, damaged or incomplete. If this is the case then we arrange for our trusted recycling partner to pick up and perform the recycling/disposal operation.

Recycling computers

What materials are recyclable?

Computer recycling

Your Electronic Waste is safely and securely disposed of, and very little is sent to landfill.

So how do we do this? Well, it is separated out into all the different elements that are within e-waste. Such as ferrous (iron-based) and non-ferrous metals, glass and various types of plastics.

Once these have been separated they can be recycled in the best way possible which leaves very little to go into landfill.

A win-win for everyone.
