What we do

Onsite Storage

Lighting and electronic waste (e-waste) should be kept whole and dry. Storage areas should be restricted to authorized persons only. Any damaged lighting and electronic waste 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 and electronic 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 e-waste recycling process.
