What is

E-Waste?

OLD, DISCARDED ELECTRONIC DEVICES AND APPLIANCES

Electronic waste is what we call electronic or electrical items that are now being thrown away. This might be an old cellphone, a washing machine, or even children’s toys. You can think of e-waste as anything that has a cable or battery – it’s important to know that these items should not be put with your other rubbish in the normal bin. Instead, you should always recycle your e-waste.

But why does e-waste need special treatment? It contains mixed materials from wiring, plastic, hazardous materials, and even precious metals like gold! This all means that e-waste should be disposed of carefully, so that it’s not harmful to the environment – and that the old parts could even be re-used in new products.

By not recycling your e-waste, it has a negative impact on the environment. Caring about our environment is the right thing to do, like minimising pollution to our rivers, oceans, soil and air. Do your part today – recycle your e-waste! After all, our landfills are getting too full! Find your nearest e-waste drop-off centre by visiting our map here.

Work together with ERA and Dell Technologies towards a future world where nothing goes to waste. Think smart about our tech and e-waste, think SUSTAINABLY.

what it means to be

sustainable

How we live day-to-day and the decisions we make has an effect on our environment and the planet. “Environmental sustainability” means doing the right thing today to ensure an equal, if not better, way of life for future generations (United Nations definition).

Because so many decisions that impact the environment are not felt immediately, sustainability is about looking forward. What kind of earth do we want our children to inherit?

So living sustainably means being responsible, and looking after natural resources like air, water and wildlife. We must avoid depleting natural resources and compromising the future generation’s ability to meet their needs.

Sustainability is the practice of treating the planet in a responsible way. We need to look after the earth, together. Now and in the future. How do we create a better world?

As individuals, we can make a positive impact by living more sustainably – like by recycling the e-waste in your home.

To be more environmentally sustainable, businesses might switch to using renewable energy, make steps to minimise their Carbon Footprint or reduce their power consumption. Sustainability is now a long-term business value.

ERA contributes towards sustainability by preventing more e-waste from ending up in landfill. Sustainable e-waste management promotes responsible handling and recycling of electronic devices and their components.
Join us as we work towards a future where business, people, and the planet can thrive!

How is Dell

becoming fully sustainable

Dell Technologies is committed to advancing sustainability in a number of ways – from increasing the use of recycled materials and minerals in products to making devices easier to repair and responsibly recycle.

The global company’s ambitious Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) goals are to use more sustainable and recycled materials and to take back as many products as it sells to reduce waste and keep materials in use longer.

As a leader in circular design, Dell addresses the full lifecycle – from increasing the use of recycled materials and minerals in products, to making devices easier to repair and responsibly recycle. For example, its new Latitude devices are the world’s first commercial PCs to use recycled cobalt in their batteries, sourced from electric vehicle batteries.

A leader in sustainable technology, Dell Technologies partnered with customers to make the transition to more energy-efficient data centres with advanced cooling and thermals, power management tools and offering as-a-Service (aaS) solutions.

Dell’s FY23 ESG Report demonstrates how its commitments drive climate action and accelerate the circular economy.

Supporting the U.N. Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by advancing sustainability, Dell Technologies is working to minimise impact and support positive environmental outcomes, through contributing to responsible consumption and production as well as accelerating the circular economy by driving innovation in design, manufacturing and materials.

What to do

with your e-waste?

reuse

This means using items or parts of items more than once. That’s why we mustn’t throw e-waste away with the normal trash, because it contains valuable resources for reusing. Sometimes electronic goods are only thrown away to make way for new ones – but are still usable and could benefit others.

So before you throw it away, ask yourself: Where can I take this electronic item to possibly be reused?

repair

Before you throw it away, consider: Is it really broken? Sometimes there is a lack of motivation or knowledge to fix an electronic item when it breaks, resulting in it being discarded. A simple repair job could extend the lifespan of discarded electronic waste.

So before you throw it away, ask yourself: Can it be fixed? And if I do not want to fix it myself, where can I take it for someone else to do the fix?

recycle

When discarding your waste, find ways to recycle it instead of letting it go to landfill.

Recycling e-waste ensures that valuable and often scarce materials are recovered – such as metal, glass – and hazardous substances – like mercury – are handled with the appropriate care. Find your nearest e-waste drop centre here!
