Dimension Data announces e-waste removal service

ICT services company, Dimension Data, has launched an e-waste removal service as part of its expanded Technology Lifecycle Management Assessment (TLMA) designed to assist organisations with inventory management.

The TLMA catalogues and analyses assets on the network, and identifies end-of-life and security issues so that they can be proactively addressed.

The company has created the program on the back of research that indicates that the number of electronic devices at end-of-life will double from 2010 to 2025, and estimates that over 60 million tons of e-waste will be at the decision point for reuse, recycle, of landfill in 2013.

Dimension Data's priorities for organisations when removing e-waste are ensuring that it is disposed in the most ecological and regulatory-compliant manner across global sites, and ensuring that the company's security and brand are not negatively impacted in the process.

"Expanding our Technology Lifecycle Management Assessment to include an e-waste solution means our expert advice doesn't end at the point of disposal," Dimension Data sustainability director, Colin Curtis, said.

"We can now assess the strength of each item in a technology base, determine its point in the lifecycle, and then use best practices to dispose of elapsed devices and equipment in an ecological and regulatory-compliant manner. In addition, the organisation's security and brand are not negatively impacted."

According to Dimension Data, the TLMA also offers a thorough assessment of an organisation's installed base, a single plan for removing e-waste globally, experienced service providers, simple costing, and security.
