Com­puter re­cy­cling which is free, safe and eth­i­cal?

Sounds too good to be true? Com­puter Re­cy­cling Ltd, an Auck­land-based com­pany, does ex­actly that and claims a stag­ger­ing 99 per cent of re­ceived items are kept out of landŽlls. Un­wanted com­put­ers are re­fur­bished, reused and resold where pos­si­ble, oth­er­wise they’re re­cy­cled eth­i­cally and safely fol­low­ing the Basel Con­ven­tion

reg­u­la­tions, of which NZ is a sig­na­tory. This con­ven­tion is an in­ter­na­tional treaty with the main ob­jec­tive of pro­tect­ing hu­man and en­vi­ron­men­tal health

against the ad­verse ef­fects of haz­ardous waste. Its aims in­clude re­duc­ing haz­ardous waste move­ments be­tween na­tions, es­pe­cially from de­vel­oped to un­der­de­vel­oped coun­tries, and pro­mot­ing en­vi­ron­men­tally sound haz­ardous

waste man­age­ment. Com­puter Re­cy­cling Ltd is the only New Zealand owned and

op­er­ated com­pany that holds two Basel Ex­port Per­mits: one for gen­eral e-waste, which in­cludes all com­puter and elec­tronic equip­ment; and the other for CRT glass which comes from old com­puter mon­i­tors

and tele­vi­sions. Drop your old com­puter to 3 South­down Lane, Pen­rose in Auck­land, Mon­day to Fri­day: 9am - 5pm; Satur­days: 10am-4pm.
