How does ewaste recycling work?

Ewaste recycling helps to process several tones of e waste in a systematic and appropriate manner that helps protect the environment just as reduce the measure of crude materials that need to be produced from mining or other environmentally unsafe practices for creating the next generation of electronic devices. Ewaste recycling companies follow these procedures:

Collection of Ewaste

Ewaste recycling companies schedule collection of electronic waste from homes and companies and provide an estimate of the entire employment. All electronic equipment is tracked by an efficient material global positioning framework and each component’s description and weight is recorded for inventory following and responsibility of the warehouse mass balance. The electronic waste that is received is processed and sorted out into two streams.

  • Ewaste that is good for reuse – Equipment’s for electronic waste or components that are in a working state or can be easily repaired is refurbished for resale. Those that are over a base hardware specification for example, Pentium 4 items, are good for recycling.
  • Ewaste that isn’t good for reuse is disassembled physically. This helps recover base material for reprocessing.

Ewaste that is classified for reuse by the authorized and registered Ewaste recycling and refurbishing companies follow a stringent QA process. The refurbishing process includes information erasure and sterilization, test and labelling, cleaning, overhauling of RAM or the HDD, replacing flawed motherboards, refurbishing as well as directing minor repairs. The electronic item is sold back through online gateways, for example, e-Bay or authorized asset brokers. So as to achieve the highest recovery rate of resources Electronic waste recycling companies physically disassemble the ewaste items into its base materials and components. While the disassembly process is carried out, it is checked to see if the components exceed an insignificant practical specification that is required for it to be reused.

The material that is recovered after the disassembly process includes components like steel, copper, aluminum, glass, plastic, Central Processing Units CPU, Hard Drives, Memory Cards, Sound Cards, Graphic Cards, Floppy/CD/DVD Drives, Modems, Circuit Boards, Power Supplies, CPU Fans, Motors/Transformers, Cables, Adaptors, Batteries and wood. Every single other material is categorized by type and weight then sent to downstream material or component recyclers for reprocessing. So as to make sure that all the material that is received at the centres is accounted for, the פסולת אלקטרונית organization keeps track of the weight of the material that is sent out to the downstream material and component recyclers.
