Electronic waste comprises discarded computers and office
equipment, entertainment devices, mobile phones, television sets and
household equipment, etc.
Rapid changes in technology, changes in media (tapes,
photographic equipment, software, MP3, etc), falling prices,
and planned obsolescence have resulted in a fast-growing global
surplus of electronic waste.
Used or redundant electronic equipment has limited but different uses. ONLY 15-20%
of e-waste is recycled, the balance being dumped into landfills and
incinerators, releasing a negative carbon footprint into the
atmosphere. E- waste contains both hazardous but also reclaimable and
scarce metallic and non metallic elements which, when correctly and
environmentally safely recycled are available for reuse or
The New Reclamation Group thus plays an active role in protecting the earth's natural resources.
Reclam is sensitive to the security issues concerning data
contained on various units (such as hard drives) by guaranteeing the
destruction of all data contained on electronic data storage devices.
In conforming to the principles of EWASA and other
statutory bodies, formal “disposal certificates” will be issued for
each and every consignment on request. Click here.
Benefits of recycling
Recycling raw materials from end-of-life electronics is the
most effective solution to the growing e-waste problem. By dismantling
and providing reuse possibilities, intact natural resources are
conserved and air and water pollution caused by hazardous disposal is
avoided. Additionally, recycling reduces the amount of greenhouse gas
emissions caused by the manufacturing of new product
