EWaste Africa is a multi-award winning, legally compliant and environmentally ethical lighting and electronic waste (e-waste) recycler. We offer you several services for the recycling of their lighting and electronic waste. These services include on-site storage solutions, collection, logistics, and the heart of our business recycling and beneficiation. Our customers include businesses, government institutions, parastatals, and individuals.
EWaste Africa prides itself in creating jobs and building teams centred around making an impact on sustainability. We work with the circular economy in mind. Our aim is to assist you and to work together with you to achieve a zero waste to landfill target.
Prior to 2013, Africa lacked the necessary technology and know how to implement a commercialised Light Bulb recycling plant. EWaste Africa prides itself in having commissioned Africa’s first lighting waste recycling plant. This was officially opened by the Deputy Minister of the Department of Environmental Affairs, Honourable Barbara Thomson in 2014. We are now the market-leader in lighting waste recycling, but have also diversified to include electronic waste recycling into our product portfolio.

As EWaste Africa, we care deeply for the environment, and our aim is to assist you, our customer, to play your part in protecting the environment.

Our service offering gives you a holistic offering which covers the entire waste management value chain, from collection to beneficiation. This offering meets four critical needs, namely:

Our journey began in 2013 after securing the technology and distribution rights for recycling products from Balcan Engineering. They are an engineering company who are based in the United Kingdom and who have won the Queen’s innovation award for their recycling technology. In 2014, we received our Hazardous Waste Management License for the first light bulb recycling facility in Africa and we secured offtake agreements for the recycling by-products. Our first recycling facility was opened by the honourable Deputy Minister Barbara Thompson.

We are motivated by competition to push us to better ourselves and grow as a company and a team. That hard work paid off when we were announced as winners of awards such as the Nedbank PCB Award: Spirit of Entrepreneurship 2016, Young Entrepreneur Of the Year: South Africa Premier Business Awards 2016, ESKOM BIC: Trade and Services and GAP Innovation Competition: Green Category both in 2017 as well as 2nd place nationally for SAB Kickstart Boost 2016.
