Computer Purchase & Remarketing
In commercial quantities, where equipment is working in current specification, we can maximize the recovery value to your organization.
This can result in either a reduction of the overall cost of the service, a cost neutral scenario or a reimbursement to your business. Please contact us to discuss your specific scenario.
Secure Data Deletion or Destruction
Our proprietary data deletion method is guaranteed to destroy all data irrecoverably. We also securely destroy all digital storage media via a mechanical shredding process.
All transport is secure point to point courier services and all staff have police clearances. We provide certified reporting and asset recording services. These reports enable IT departments to complete internal audits.
Complete IT Equipment Recycling
We can collect and process ALL types of IT and communications equipment. Please contact us to discuss your specific needs.

Computer Deployment & Decommissioning
We specialize in managing computer storage, deployment and collection programs for corporate organisations. Our asset management system provides a full audit trail of your equipment.
A good way to increase a product's lifespan and the best form or recycling is reuse. After full inspection testing and repair we aim to repurpose as much of the equipment as possible. Where this is not possible the equipment is broken down to its raw material components and reprocessing for remanufacturing.
Computers contain several non-renewable natural resources extracted from the earth and processed, often requiring a significant amount of resources and energy. These include sand (to make glass for screens), oil (used for plastics), and several metals used in wiring and circuitry.
The type of metals depend on the age of the components and can include lead, gold, iron, aluminum, zinc, nickel, tin, magnesium, silver, mercury, arsenic, cadmium, chromium and others. Some of these are becoming increasingly scarce and sometimes their supply chain leads to operations with questionable social and environmental issues. For example, coltan is a rare metal that contains tantalum, a key component of electronic circuitry in computers, smart phones and e-readers.
After extraction and processing, raw materials are then used in the production of other raw materials for the computer's components. A publication by the United Nations University has estimated that the manufacture of a computer and monitor weighing 24 kg requires 10 times the amount of fossil fuels over 240 kg, 23 kg of chemicals and 1497 kg of water. For a car, for example, the weight of fossil fuels used for production is roughly equal to their weights.
Electronic waste is responsible for 70% of the toxic chemicals such as lead, cadmium and mercury found in landfill. When e-waste is sent to landfill, poisonous substances can leach from decomposing waste and into the environment. These substances can seep into groundwater, contaminate the soil and enter the food chain.
Most electronic equipment contains printed circuit boards which are hazardous because of their high concentration of lead in solder and brominated flame retardants. Computer monitors can contain approximately 10-20% lead in the glass tubes. Monitor casings also contain brominated flame retardants and other chemicals, as do printers and copiers. Some equipment also contains high levels of other hazardous materials such as cadmium and berylliums.
We currently have partner relationships providing computer equipment and donations to several charities including, St Vincent de Paul Society, Rotary Club of Perth, Passages Youth Resource Centre, Hawaiian Ride for Youth, and Royal Flying Doctors Services.
With us you can be sure that your computers won't harm the environment and are also helping those in need.
