Commercial e-waste comes from the unusable and discarded electronics by the business and trading sector. These electronics may be damaged or outdated, but either way, they’ve reached the end of their lives. When that happens, these electronics must be disposed of as waste as there’s no realistic scenario where these gigantic IT systems can be hoarded in warehouses, offices, or homes.
With climate change on the rise, commercial waste disposal, in its current form, is not the best idea on the table. It just takes all of this e-waste and either puts it to the torch or dumps it into landfills. Both methods expose the toxins in these devices to the environment, polluting the air, water, and soil, and eventually harming human, plant, and planet life.
But what’s even worse and unfair is that most of the e-waste we generate in the US (the second-largest producer of e-waste in the world, behind China) is sent to developing countries in Africa and Southeast Asia — countries that are ill-equipped to handle the mess that we are dumping at their doors. The mess that they have not even created.
Together, these services provide you with a comprehensive commercial IT disposal and recycling system for your business.
How Does IT Disposal and Recycling Work?
IT disposal or electronic waste recycling is a multiphase process of recycling e-waste and unusable electronic devices. It includes the following basic steps:
Sorting: E-waste is sorted based on its type and components to separate valuables from scrap and process them appropriately.
Dismantling: E-waste is physically disassembled into smaller parts and components to make the next process easy.
Extracting: Valuable materials such as precious metals, usable plastic, circuit boards, etc. are extracted from devices for reuse or further processing.
Shredding: Anything that cannot be repurposed is crushed into dust for cyber safety plus eco-friendly disposal into landfills and such.
Our commercial e-waste recycling system is thorough and ensures that nothing valuable goes to waste. When any electronic device, whether it is your office TV, computer, laptop, notebook, or DVD player, is disassembled, the most important materials i.e., plastic and metals are removed so they can be used to manufacture new devices. Monitor screens are recycled to manufacture new monitors whereas the computer frame can be a rich source of plastic, curbing plastic pollution.
