What is ewaste?
Ewaste (electronic waste or e waste) is any form of electronic product that is no longer fit for use as per its manufactured intent and requires disposal. It is any electrical product that you can plug in or use with batteries.
Why is it so important to recycle ewaste?
Ewaste contains a number of toxic substances such as lead, cadmium, mercury and phosphors which, if sent to landfill, can have a devastating effect on the local environment. Furthermore, many of the materials required for the manufacture of new electronic products require mining of our natural resources if recycled raw materials are not available.
How much will it cost me to recycle my ewaste?
eWastec can offer a free recycling service for all scheme eWaste (NTCRS), however, there may be a cost involved for collecting the eWaste you have dependant on the volume and location of your eWaste. For all non scheme ewaste (e.g. Household appliances) contact eWastec for a quote.
How can eWastec recycle my ewaste for free?
Ewastec are part of the National Television and Computer Recycling Scheme (NTCRS) which requires manufacturers and importers of Televisions and Computers to essentially fund recycling businesses within the scheme by meeting set targets specified by the government. Ie by 2026-27 these manufacturers (known as liable parties) must prove that 80% of the volume they manufacture or import is recycled.
Where will my ewaste end up?
eWastec are committed to achieving a 95% recovery rate for all eWaste that enters our site meaning 95% of what you send to us will be recycled ethically and legally by our recycling partners into raw materials that can then be used in the manufacture of new products.
What happens to my private information on my computer?
If you haven’t already erased the data from your hard drive or other data containing hardware eWastec can do this for you either as complete destruction of the hardware or as a data wipe
What happens to the plastic?
All ABS/PC plastic used is baled and recycled into pellets to be re used in new plastic products
