How your eWaste is Recycled

Ecogeek recycle electronic waste in accordance to national environmental standards. All end-of-life and non-working items are sent to downstream recyclers in Australia for further processing and precious metal recovery.

  • Computers and laptops are dismantled, and all components recycled. Circuit Boards are processed to recover their precious metals in a closed loop system.
  • Hard drives are wiped with a single pass if remarketed. Media and non-functional hard drives are degaussed and shredded.
  • Loose plastics are removed for separate plastic recycling.
  • Toners are removed from printers for separate recycling.
  • Batteries are removed for separate recycling.
  • All cases, printer and copier shells, racks, and phones are processed for metal recovery.
  • CRT televisions and CRT monitors are dismantled and the tubes sent to specialised processors for further recycling.

EcoGeek Takes Data Destruction Seriously!

Each item that passes through our warehouse is cleansed of personal data using approved software.

We understand that confidential information is stored on your hard drives. Hard drives are overwritten with characters that make the data un-retrievable. Faulty hard drives and other media devices are destroyed either by degaussing or shredding.
