What we do

Onsite Storage

Lighting waste and e-waste should be kept whole and dry; and storage areas should be restricted to authorized persons only. Any damaged lamps or electrical equipment should be stored separately to prevent contamination and reduce hazards. EWaste Africa supplies specially designed and lockable containers or drums for the safe storage of lighting waste and e-waste at your site.

Recycling & Beneficiation

EWaste Africa prides itself in finding innovative and award-winning equipment and processes to assist us in moving towards our vision of “zero waste to landfill for our clients”. These processes include our lamp recycling plant, our LPXTM Plant (in partnership with the University of KwaZulu-Natal) and our WEEE recycling process.

Collection & Logistics

EWaste Africa collects your lighting waste and e-waste using vehicles that have been certified to transport dangerous goods. Our collection teams have been trained in the safe handling of hazardous goods to ensure that the collection from your facility is easy and safe.
