WHAT IS eWASTE?

We are here to help!

eWaste is electronic waste, the term given to discarded electronic devices.

It’s an increasing issue in our technology-driven world and one causing much impact on our environment, so it is crucial we act to reduce those negative effects

Did you know?

Australians are among the highest users of technology and producers of eWaste:

99% of Australian households have at least one TV, and 55% have a second set

Australians buy more than 4 million computers and 3 million TVs annually

1.5 million televisions are discarded annually – if 75% were recycled, the savings would be:

23,000 tonnes of CO2 equivalents

520 megalitres of water

400,000 gigajoules of energy

160,000 cubic metres of landfill space

This is a snapshot on a household level, when we include the corporate world, the impact is far greater.

WHY RECYCLE?

Use professionals!

eWaste in landfills causes poisonous substances to seep into groundwater, contaminating soil and making its way into the food chain. Recycling eWaste is more complex than a plastic bottle – it must be broken into parts, its usable materials separated and toxic material safely disposed. At Secure Computer Recycling and Disposal, we are here to help your business reduce its environmental footprint. 

eWaste Dangers

eWaste is a compound problem – it’s not just about the space taken up in landfills, everyday eWaste contains some toxic substances:

  • Lead in cathode ray tubes and solder
  • Mercury in switches and housing
  • Arsenic in cathode-ray tubes
  • Antimony trioxide as flame retardant
  • Selenium in circuit boards
  • Cadmium in semiconductors
  • Cobalt in steel for magnets
