Our disability program
Around 1 in 5 Australians have some form of disability and it is our core belief at eWastec that every Australian should have access to employment.
We are very passionate about providing sustainable employment for people with disabilities and are committed to growing eWastec to achieve our vision of being one of Australia’s largest disability employers.
Working closely with our not for profit disability services partner, Connecting 2 Australia, we train and develop our disabled workers skills to enable them to be “the engine room” of our business, manually disassembling all the television, computer and IT equipment that is sent to our site.

Planet Ark Environmental Foundation is an Australian not-for-profit environmental organisation, founded in 1992, which works with the public and business alike to help find the simple ways in which they can reduce their impact on the planet, at home, at work and in the community.

OUR RECYCLING SERVICES
As one of the world’s highest users of computers, Australia has a growing computer and laptop waste issue as new models supersede old technology.
Mobile Phone Recycling
The proliferation of mobile phone makes this an increasingly important part of recycling. We collect SIMM cards, mobile phone and tablet chargers/accessories.
Electronic waste is produced at up to three times that of normal household waste production, and TVs are a huge source of this waste.
There are a significant number of parts and non-renewable resources that can be recycled and reused in printers and photocopiers for other IT devices.
Scrap Metal Recycling
Electronics and electrical equipment include a huge range of non-renewable metals such as copper, aluminium and brass that can be reused.
We ensure we protect the privacy of your data in electronic waste by destroying the hardware (if required) as we process the eWaste materials.
