Discarded electrical or electronic devices are a real problem. Not only does e-waste contain chemicals such as arsenic, mercury, lead, and cadmium, if e-waste is mishandled during disposal, these and other harmful chemicals can also end up in the environment.
E-waste encompasses electronic devices that are no longer in use or functioning, such as personal computers, Wi-Fi routers, network switches, television sets, copiers, fax machines, cell phones, VCRs, DVD players, and stereo equipment. While these may no longer be functional, they can be salvaged, refurbished, reused, or recycled.
Recognising the need for a secure centre for people to dump their previously loved electronics, SS Telecoms has added e-waste bins outside its Centurion office for e-waste recycling. It has become effortless to discard your e-waste ethically. Just drop off your e-waste at our Centurion office and have peace of mind knowing that it will be disposed of responsibly.
E-waste recycling involves the disassembling and separating of the components and raw materials of waste electronics – whether whole or in fragments discarded as waste. They include manufacturing, refurbishment, and repair processes. While repair, donation, and reuse are not strictly recycling, they still represent viable and sustainable ways to dispose of e-waste.
Keeping devices out of landfills or recovering the parts within the devices that still have value can provide manufacturers with recycled metals that can be used to make new products. Management of e-waste is vital in protecting our environmental future and preserving our communities for generations to come.
So, visit SS Telecoms at 9 Landmarks Avenue, Samrand, Centurion, and drop off your e-waste. You are also most welcome to pop into the offices simultaneously to discover what is new in the world of communications and electronics!
