Equipment that is unable to be reused is recycled through our AS/NZS 5377 accredited community e-waste recycling partners. This industry standard to recycle electronics sets out principles and minimum requirements for the safe and environmentally sound collection, storage, transport and treatment of end-of-life electrical and electronic equipment in order to maximise re-use and material recovery, reduce or eliminate the amount of waste from this equipment.

How your equipment is processed

  • All equipment is dismantled to Circuit Board and Component level
  • Components are sorted for specialized downstream recycling
  • Circuit Boards are shredded and smelted to recover their precious metals – primarily gold, silver and copper.
  • Metals are sent to a metal furnace for reclamation
  • Plastics are shredded and recycled
  • Glass is then crushed and melted, then moulded into new products
  • Toners and batteries are sent to specialised recyclers
  • Downstream recyclers have environmental pollutant controls for waste dust, water, and fumes including dust collectors, waste water treatment plants, and fume scrubbers.
