IT Certified Recycling

The Growing Issue with e-Waste

Electronic waste is a global problem that has grown significantly in the past decade. As more and more of our business and lifestyle activities become dependent on the use of electronic devices, the problem will only increase further. In 2020, less than 40% of EU e-waste was recycled. E-waste that ends up in landfills are extremely damaging to the environment because of the hazardous materials that they contain. Devices that are improperly disposed of can leach harmful substances into groundwater which negatively affects the health of both the human and animal population. Furthermore, much of the e-waste generated in Europe ends up in landfills in third-world countries where people then attempt to extract the valuable metals that e-waste can contain without proper personal protective equipment. When you choose Wisetek as your certified recycling partner, you can be sure that no e-waste ends up in the landfill thanks to our zero-landfill policy. Plus the sensitive information belonging to your company and your clients is destroyed for good and verified.
