EnviroServ steps into the e-waste arena | Infrastructure news

As electronic waste (e-waste) reaches unprecedented levels EnviroServ has announced its decision to add e-waste services to its waste management portfolio.

The move will see the waste management g service provider assisting companies throughout South Africa with compliant asset disposal of all end-of-term IT and electronic equipment.

Dawie Krugel EnviroServ Commercial Director says the company saw an opportunity in the market with the upcoming promulgation of the PoPI Act into law.

“The act ensures that all South African institutions conduct themselves in a responsible manner when collecting, processing, storing and sharing another entity’s personal information, there has been a greater focus in recent years on safe storage and destruction of personal information. Penalties, including proposed jail terms, have been mooted in the area of information protection,” explains.

Partnering for environmental protection

The waste management giant has partnered with Tarsus Dispose-IT (Pty) Ltd, who are experts in this area and who will be managing this process on behalf of EnviroServ.

Together the companies will offer advanced reverse logistics, from bulk collection to individual pickups nationally. Data destruction can now be done onsite or offsite, and compliance certificates will be issued for all work carried out to effectively remove the POPI liability from the end customer.

“We offer a complete de-commissioning and commissioning suite of services designed to minimise organisational downtime, small office or large complex facility asset migration, as well as sensitive data or device destruction services,” Krugel explains.

IT refreshes and trade-ins

It is critical to ensure IT refreshes are made more cost efficient by offering end of life equipment as a trade-in.

“We help clients realise competitive value for the working equipment returned, bringing down the total cost of ownership. To further help maintain refresh cycles on equipment, we offer an upfront commitment to buy back goods at a fixed future value.
