The eWaste brand is now in the USA, UK, Australia, China, India, Mexico, South America, and Africa.
¤ EWSI maintains a zero landfill policy and operates voluntarily under the world's strictest e-waste standards, which it believes to be the European Union’s WEEE Directive. EWSI will only partner with companies that share their same high standards.

By partnering with EWSI, you can be confident that your data, brands, and corporate image will be protected throughout the electronics end-of-life process.
The following services can be mixed and matched in nearly any jurisdiction to meet your needs. Those services that we cannot provide in-house in a given jurisdiction we can source from our extensive network of affiliates, all of whom meet our exacting standards of quality, security, and environmental responsibility.
Global Collection & Logistics: Secure and efficient pickup, transportation, and storage services.
EWSI’s management team has vast experience dealing with the unique aspects of electronics reverse logistics. We offer secure and efficient collection, transportation, and storage services with detailed chain of custody tracking throughout the process.

Responsible Recycling: For units beyond economic repair, demanufacturing, component harvesting, and processing into segregated material streams for reuse in manufacturing or downstream refining. All according to leading environmental standards.
To close the electronics loop, EWSI takes the residual e-waste streams after refurbishment and component harvesting (as well as any whole assets designated for destruction by their owners) and uses state-of-the-art engineering to break these down into segregated material streams for processing, refining, and maximum extraction to produce new manufacturing input. We operate with a zero-landfill objective and use a variety of processes to generate up to twenty different streams of recyclate that are converted into new raw materials by intelligent and environmentally friendly downstream refining. We recover maximum value from these materials, including glass, plastics, ferrous and non-ferrous metals, precious metals, and platinum group metals. Every step in our process is transparent and documented and will stand the test of scrutiny from any audit.
