Electronic waste comprises discarded computers and office equipment, entertainment devices, mobile phones, television sets and household equipment, etc.
Rapid changes in technology, changes in media (tapes, photographic equipment, software, MP3, etc), falling prices, and planned obsolescence have resulted in a fast-growing global surplus of electronic waste.
Used or redundant electronic equipment has limited but different uses. ONLY 15-20% of e-waste is recycled, the balance being dumped into landfills and incinerators, releasing a negative carbon footprint into the atmosphere. E- waste contains both hazardous but also reclaimable and scarce metallic and non metallic elements which, when correctly and environmentally safely recycled are available for reuse or remanufacture.
The New Reclamation Group thus plays an active role in protecting the earth’s natural resources.
Reclam is sensitive to the security issues concerning data contained on various units (such as hard drives) by guaranteeing the destruction of all data contained on electronic data storage devices.
In conforming to the principles of EWASA and other statutory bodies, formal “disposal certificates” will be issued for each and every consignment on request. Click here.
Benefits of recycling
Recycling raw materials from end-of-life electronics is the most effective solution to the growing e-waste problem. By dismantling and providing reuse possibilities, intact natural resources are conserved and air and water pollution caused by hazardous disposal is avoided. Additionally, recycling reduces the amount of greenhouse gas emissions caused by the manufacturing of new product
