Unlock additional value from end-of-use IT assets

In deciding on disposal for your end-of-use IT equipment, factors such as risk, efficiencies and value must be considered. Data security is a primary concern, not to mention environmental issues and ensuring an optimal financial return. Greenbox has been managing eWaste for more than 18 years, and our track record speaks for itself. We protect:

Data Security

End-of-use IT equipment at some time has held confidential and secure information and data. We provide the highest level security services to ensure that your data has been destroyed and your devices sanitised. Our solutions are military grade and delivered via secure premises and cleared personnel.

Your Reputation

When data security fails, it becomes a reputational risk, particularly where customer data is involved. A supplier that fails to meet the highest security standards that we adhere to contributes to this risk. Greenbox’s long-standing reputation is a clear signal of our reliability, as is our commitment to the Notifiable Data Breach legislation.

Environmental and social responsibilities

We don’t believe in landfill, but we do believe in giving back. We help deliver corporate social responsibility targets and reduce your environmental footprint by utilising the commonly accepted waste hierarchy of reuse before recycle. Where an item is fit for reuse, we repurpose. For the small percentage of items that are not fit we recycle using best practice recycling methodologies. By extending the life of an asset we are reducing the net environmental impact.

Financial outcomes

There are many eWaste suppliers that will simply recycle all of your end-of-use equipment. Others are limited by what the local market will pay. But this doesn’t deliver optimal financial outcomes. At Greenbox, we use established global alliances to repurpose more of your IT assets – which delivers better financial returns.
