Singapore generates nearly 60,000 tons of electrical & electronic waste (e-waste) annually. Only 6% of e-waste is recycled and the remainder is incinerated. Businesses and organisations contribute approximately 50% e-waste in total.

WHY COMPLIANCE MATTERS IN IT ASSET DISPOSAL?

Environmental Responsibility 

Organisations play an important part in reducing the total e-waste produced. Currently, the best practices in Singapore for organisations to dispose of end-of-life (E.O.L) – or old ICT equipment (Infocomm Technology equipment) form the SS 587. Issued by the National Environment Agency (NEA) and the Singapore Standard Council, the SS 587 ensures e-waste is disposed of by businesses and organisations in an environmentally responsible way. Though voluntary, the SS 587 provides a pathway for those who adopt SS 587 to be certified and recognised for their efforts, ultimately raising their brand image.

Data Protection

In disposing end-of-life IT assets, businesses and organisations also face challenges in protecting private and confidential data that are stored in the equipment. For example, deleting files and emptying a computer’s recycle bin do not completely erase the data. Certain softwares can still recover those deleted files, putting companies at business and legal risks. Therefore, as part of the IT Asset Disposal process, organisations need a compliant and secure method to permanently erase data and prevent them from landing in the wrong hands.
