Secure and Responsible E-Waste Recycling
According to the e-Waste
Association of South Africa, South Africa generates about 6.2 kilograms
of e-waste per inhabitant annually and only 12% of that is recycled.
In 2019, a record 53.6 million metric tonnes of e-waste was generated worldwide – an increase of 21% in just five years. And if left unchecked, it is estimated that by 2030, this number will reach 74 million metric tonnes.

Your Data is ImportantMore than ever today, it’s critical when you get rid of an older smartphone, laptop, iPad, or tablet to recycle them with a reputable recycling company such as AST Recycling. A lot of people don’t realise that those devices are loaded with your personal data.
If you have ever had a photo of your ID on a device, if you’ve ever stored credit card information, photos you wouldn’t want anyone else to have, or scans of personal documents, consider having your hard drives professionally sanitised before you sell them on or donate them, because the chances of your information being recovered are very high.
AST Recycling ensures that all your data is sanitised before recycling. Data protection is our top priority.
Donating Your IT Equipment?
It is said that one man’s junk is another man’s treasure.
Never is this truer than in the technology space, in
which one organisation’s outdated equipment can be
just what a smaller organisation needs for its
day-to-day administration. Or, some companies even
donate or sell equipment to their staff.
Donating equipment rather than discarding it is also a great contributor to the circular economy, extending the life of goods rather than sending them straight to landfill when their current usefulness has expired.
AST Recycling helps companies to donate IT equipment while ensuring that no data is compromised and all regulatory compliance is adhered to.
