e-Waste Repurposing

E-WASTE REPURPOSING

It’s interesting that in many sectors we hear the terms – REUSE, RECYCLE or REDUCE

Unfortunately, the e-waste problem is not one that is going to reduce anytime soon so we have to look to other options – Reuse or Recycle. The UN estimates between 20-50 million tonnes of electronic waste is discarded every year, with only 12.5% of this being recycled.

e-Waste recycling is definitely a positive disposal method ensuring that precious metals and components are recycled into usable commodities or parts. Another option and the most sustainable is Reuse, Repurposing or Remarketing.

 

E-Waste Recycling

e-Waste Repurposing (Reuse or Remarketing) is a circular economy solution and is the process whereby non-data holding electronic items or electronic assets with data destroyed are reused either within your business or externally giving them second and third lives.

For electronic assets containing data, repurposing of the asset is performed after the data destruction process has been completed.
