 Waste management

E-waste is growing in volume – it's predicted to reach 93.5 million tons in 2016. For IT departments, e-waste management can be costly. An ineffective e-waste strategy may result in increased operational costs, serious security breaches and negative publicity.

Yet, disposing of e-waste globally isn't as simple as it should be. There's a range of international legislation and manufacturer take-back schemes to understand, and managing multiple local e-waste companies can be difficult.

 

Overview

 

Management Assessment  gives you control of your complete technology life cycle – helping you to maximize your assets and simplify budgeting.

Once we've agreed that your technology has reached the end of its life, we can help you with disposal. We work with manufacturers and approved partners who've agreed to our 'four zeros' policy for e-waste management:

  • Zero landfill: we aim to eliminate disposing of e-waste in landfill sites.
  • Zero exploitation: disposal must take place in safe, ethical working conditions.
  • Zero data: data is destroyed, so security isn't compromized.
  • Zero cost: minimize or remove costs, which are an inhibitor of good stewardship.

Our e-waste solution is ideal for large multinational companies – our global footprint gives you access to our direct presence in over 50 countries on five continents.
