The European Environment Agency, working with the United Nations, estimates between 250,000 tonnes and 1.3 million tonnes of used electrical products are shipped out of the EU every year and that these goods are processed in dangerous and inefficient conditions, harming the health of local people and damaging the environment.
At Secure IT Disposals, we implement ISO 14001 standard and a zero landfill waste policy. So you can be part of the solution and not part of the problem when using us as your IT disposal supplier.
It is legal to export discarded electrical items to poor countries if they can be reused or refurbished but much is being sent to Africa or Asia under false pretenses and Interpol is targeting it. Read more HERE.
