Shred On Site offers a full service electronic waste (e-waste) removal, destruction and recycling service called e-Waste. We come to you. We do all the hard work. We remove everything from your room, shed, and storage unit or wherever you have your e-waste stored and take it away to be disassembled, shredded and recycled.
The amount of e-waste in Australia is growing three times faster than general municipal waste. It is estimated that just for televisions and computers, the amount of e-waste generated in Australia will grow by 60% to 223,000 tonnes in 2023. In 2018, the Victorian Government intends to ban all e-waste from landfill sites in Victoria. Shred On Site’s e-waste removal service can assist you in complying with these new laws, while helping to contribute to a safer and healthier environment.
How Does Our e-Waste Service Work?
One of our vehicles will come to your nominated location – all you need to do is identify what needs to go and our accredited Customer Service Operator(s) will do the rest. We will make a list of the e-waste items, secure them in the vehicle and take them to our recycling partner.
Shred On Site has partnered with one of Australia’s most experienced recycling companies where responsible and ethical recycling is supported by ISO9001, ISO14001 and certified to R2:2013 (Responsible Recycling) which is the most stringent recycling certification that is available.
Their extensive network of downstream recycling partners means that 92-95% of all materials will be recycled.
With e-Waste your Confidential Information is SECURE
You no longer have to risk leaving your electronic goods at the local government transfer station or out on the nature strip where the next person that comes along can take them. Additionally, Shred On Site ensures that your electronic waste items are not bundled up and on-sold to be refurbished and resold either in Australia or overseas.
All e-waste items are disassembled and the various components are sorted into their recycling streams:
- Hard drives, solid state drives, memory chips etc. are all shredded. There is no risk of your data being accessed by anyone.
- Batteries are removed and recycled to approved environmental standards.
- Printer/fax toner/ink cartridges are removed and recycled.
- The remaining plastic, glass and metal components are shredded and sorted into their correct recycling streams.
We provide you with a Certificate of Destruction confirming that your items have been destroyed (there is an additional fee if you need an itemised certificate with serial numbers recorded).
We base our costs on volume of the items, weight, access and distance to travel to and from your location to our various recycling partners. We are more than just a courier service – we offer a full service, professional, collection and destruction service at an affordable price.
