Our difference

1800RECYCLE® has a different approach to eWaste recycling utilising innovative cost effective formulas to help companies dispose of electronic waste.

We work closely with your asset team and thrive when working closely with your IT department ensuring the best outcome for you and the environment.

No exporting

1800RECYCLE® does not engage in exporting eWaste to other countries for processing by unregulated processors and recyclers. All our collections are sorted, graded, aggregated and prepared for downstream recyclers all located right here Australia such as SIMS Metals.

Some of the eWaste we collect may cost us money to properly recycle. These costs are covered within our standard collection rates and offers you the confidence that when we collect from you, we have close working relationships with only Australian based recyclers.

In most cases, we are not able to offer free collections on the basis that our working relationship with Australian recyclers can involve costs to properly process. These costs are covered by our affordable eWaste collection pricing.
