The experts in E-Waste
WHAT IS E-WASTE?
e-Waste is essentially anything that:
- holds digital information / data such as computers, phones, hard drives and printers; or
- is an electronic item and has reached the end of its useful life, has been superseded by a new model or is broken and no longer works.
In the same sense that it is a legal requirement to shred documents containing personal information before disposing of them, it’s important to make sure any electronic items and IT assets you wish to dispose of cannot compromise you, your business, your customers or your employees. This has never been more important than now with the Australian Notifiable Data Breach (NDB) and GDPR laws. Compliance is not an option; it’s mandatory. At Shred-X, we can ensure that an electronic item that may have held sensitive data is destroyed with the most certified and secure process. Some e-waste does not contain data and as such the destruction process is not required. Currently in South Australia and from 1 July 2019 in Victoria it is illegal to dispose of electronic waste in general waste or landfill, with other States soon to follow. Regardless of your State’s laws disposing of e-waste in general waste or landfill is environmentally irresponsible and unsustainable. Shred-X provide a complete range of e-waste and IT asset destruction and recycling solutions customised to your specific requirements to ensure that you not only protect your business & information but also adhere to your environmental sustainability responsibilities.
