UPDATED: Dimension Data announces e-waste removal service

Part of newly expanded Technology Lifecycle Management Assessment

ICT services company, Dimension Data, has launched an e-waste removal service as part of its expanded Technology Lifecycle Management Assessment (TLMA) designed to assist organisations with inventory management.

The TLMA catalogues and analyses assets on the network, and identifies end-of-life and security issues so that they can be proactively addressed.

The company has created the program on the back of research that indicates that the number of electronic devices at end-of-life will double from 2010 to 2025, and estimates that over 60 million tons of e-waste will be at the decision point for reuse, recycle, of landfill in 2013.

“Expanding our Technology Lifecycle Management Assessment to include an e-waste solution means our expert advice doesn’t end at the point of disposal,” Dimension Data sustainability director, Colin Curtis, said.

“We can now assess the strength of each item in a technology base, determine its point in the lifecycle, and then use best practices to dispose of elapsed devices and equipment in an ecological and regulatory-compliant manner. In addition, the organisation’s security and brand are not negatively impacted.”

While it is a global initiative, Dimension Data Australia runs eWaste Week twice a year internally, allowing individuals to dispose of unwanted or fault computer equipment from home, with the company taking care of the rest.

“We’ve had a fantastic track record of success with our previous eWaste Week initiatives, disposing of over 6000kg of employee e-waste nationally,” Dimension Data solutions director, Neil Campbell, said. “Combine that with our corporate e-waste program and we’ve safely disposed of and recycled 38,000kg of e-waste nationally.”

Dimension Data’s goals for Australia echo that of its global strategy.

“We aim for zero electronic waste to be disposed of in landfill sites,” Campbell added. “We believe that electronic waste should be disposed of using safe and ethical working conditions. We know all data should be destroyed during disposal so that security is not compromised. We think there should not be a cost for environmentally friendly, ethical, and secure disposal, and we minimise or remove any cost to you.”

According to Dimension Data, the TLMA also offers a thorough assessment of an organisation’s installed base, a single plan for removing e-waste globally, experienced service providers, simple costing, and security.

In Pictures: 7 things we hate about Twitter

You probably either love Twitter for its quirkiness and brevity or see it as a pointless waste of time. After nearly a decade on the social scene, Twitter still needs to improve its user experience and fill in notable gaps in the service. These seven problems are long overdue for a fix.
