Electronic waste - usually called "e-waste" - refers to any and all electric or electronic items needing to be disposed of. This can include - but certainly is not limited to - old cell phones, televisions, computer towers or inkjet printers.
As technology has continued to advance, so has the amount of e-waste being produced globally with nearly 41 million tons of electronics being tossed each year. Along with the alarmingly large amount of this type of refuse is the problem of how it's being dealt with. Important to note is that government institutions collectively generate a significant amount of e-waste. This includes national government departments, provincials departments, municipalities and state owned enterprises.
Most of the components of e-Waste are recyclable. Whilst this may seem to be a huge challenge, there are simultaneously huge economic benefits for citizens of South Africa, opportunities for job creation and poverty alleviation and entrepreneurial opportunities from a well-planned, strategically resourced, well regulated, managed and controlled e-Waste system.

Assist organizations in disposing of unused or obsolete computers and electronic equipment.
Save money by eliminating the hidden cost of storing obsolete computers.
Maintain the security of proprietary corporate data and intellectual property.
In addition to being a risk to the environment, e-waste also poses a potential security threat to both individuals and businesses. If a hard drive is not properly erased before it's thrown away, it can be opened, potentially putting sensitive information in the hands of the wrong people. Credit card numbers, financial data and bank account information can all be obtained by those trained to do so. There are large organized crime rings in the country who are specifically dedicated to searching through discarded computer drives for data. Moreover, like any good compliance program, automation makes it easier. If an organization uses a device management program to automate its IT assets, proof of destruction can be linked to the program so it can provide the basis for audit control.
Dump any portion of computers hardware/high-tech junks as landfills.
Resell old computers.
Throw trash in streets causing environmental hazards.
You too can be a part of it. Please proceed to look around for e-Waste and we look forward to working with you. The only request we have for you as a responsible computer user, is to make the contact and we will do the rest. We look forward to serving your local computer recycling needs!
