Dell Technologies expands Asset Recovery Services locally to assist with IT disposal

Dell Technologies has announced an expansion of its Asset Recovery Services locally for IT.

No we’re not talking about retrieving tech that has become the “property” of kleptomaniacs at the office, but rather Dell Technologies’ efforts in the disposal and recycling of IT, as the company aims to ramp up its sustainability efforts.

To that end, Dell Technologies says the Asset Recovery Services will now support any brand of notebook, desktop, server, peripheral or accessory, helping customers implement sustainable recycling and recovery services at scale.

This is an initiative that Dell first spun up in 2008, and to date has collected more than 2.8 billion pieces of electronics globally, to be properly disposed of, recycled or repurposed.

“The offer includes a new, online self-service portal that simplifies asset disposition even more – providing businesses with real-time value estimates, comprehensive resources and streamlined takeback of devices,” explains Dell Technologies in a press release sent to Hypertext.

“Asset Recovery Services play a critical step in helping customers responsibly retire equipment and reduce their overall environmental footprint. As a global company, we take seriously our commitment and opportunities to divert e-waste from landfills. By scaling our services for securely recycling electronics and IT equipment, we are contributing to our ambitious goal to recycle or reuse one device for each one sold by 2030,” adds Doug Woolley, MD of Dell Technologies South Africa.

While organisations both locally and abroad have prioritised business projects like digital transformation and enabling a hybrid work environment, e-waste is also something that needs to be considered moving forward.

This especially as it is estimated that e-waste makes up 5 to 8 percent of municipal solid waste and is growing three times faster than any other form of waste, according to the Department of Environmental Affairs.
