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

Thanks for your efficient and professional service; you definitely made my job easy. 6.3 tonnes so far is excellent and look forward to promoting the final figure. Look forward to working together soon.
I just thought I would express my appreciations for the work that your team has accomplished for HBF. While there were logistical issues with our suppliers, I found that SCRD was on top of its game in arranging on-time collections which have impressed the branch network to no end and given them confidence in ongoing direct collections. You have our thanks for the good work.
Please find attached a copy of the purchase order for this request. I’d also like to point out the quality of the service that Rachael had provided during her time here. She was friendly, professional and efficient. She deserves a gold star at the very least.
Yes, all went pretty well, no major issues. We couldn’t get rid of quite all we wanted but that was purely our end – we’ll be ensuring we’re have greater readiness for the next time. That said, the pickup went absolutely fine, we’ve cleared out the racks we absolutely needed to & we’ll come back to you when we’re ready to send off the rest. My compliments to the team, no hassles & got the job done.
I wanted to thank you for the awesome service you have provided! From the first call I made, to your driver, to your accounts follow up, it’s all been great. We will definitely be repeat customers!
Your company has been terrific, prompt and courteous, we will definitely recommend you to other schools in our area.
Brett and his team are extremely professional and trustworthy. They are the real deal when it comes to refurbishments and large volume data erasing. Unfortunately this industry has a lot of backyard operations and you have to be very careful.
Great service as always!
Very secure and reliable service for sensitive data. Cleanest recycling warehouse around. These guys are happy to cater to any IT recycling needs.
I dealt with Brett & Tim, I highly recommend the team - they were a pleasure to deal with and extremely professional. We will be using them again!
