We give your items a second life
We’re prompt, professional and provide competitive prices. But there’s more to it.
All items collected through our hard waste disposal services are given a second life – whether it goes back on a shelf at an Op store or recycled and regenerated into something else. Sending items to landfill is always the last resort with Ecoactiv. This is part of our philosophy, where all of our services are underpinned by the Circular Economy. Items are repurposed, recycled, recovered and regenerated at the end of each service life for the better good of society and environment.
We have partnered with Australian Charities to also give you the option to donate your items. Depending on the item and condition of it, you will be able to explore donation as a disposal option. Any items that cannot be donated will be recycled.
What happens to your waste
Once collected, items are generally transferred to one of our dissembling and recycling facilities. Your hard waste is sorted by category and for potentially hazardous materials. The items are then assessed to determine its recyclability. Those that can be recycled will go through a series of disposition stages including disassembling, shredding, sorting and repurposing.
We keep you up to date with where you’re waste is going and depending on what it is, you will receive a “destruction and recycling certificate” at the end of the process.
This step depends upon the nature of the item. For example: casings and batteries are removed from the phones and glass is removed from TV and monitors.
The shredded items are now sent to be sorted. Majority of the time, items are sorted through a manual process with a select few sorted by machines.
After some devices have been disassembled, they are then sent to a shredder. This process reduces the size of these items. Data destruction also takes place in this step.
Once the shredded material is sorted out, it is processed into its raw form. After this step, it is sold to suppliers and is turned into new products.
