Where Can I Dispose of Old Computers? - South Group Recycling

In today’s rapidly advancing technological world, electronic devices like computers become outdated swiftly, leading to a significant environmental challenge: e-waste. At South Group Recycling, we understand the urgency and necessity of responsible electronic recycling. Located in Johannesburg, Cape Town, Durban, and Pretoria, we are dedicated to providing accessible and efficient solutions for recycling old computers and other electronic devices.

Why and When Should Old Computers Be Recycled?

The lifecycle of a computer, whether used for personal or professional purposes, is finite. Advancements in technology render older systems obsolete, and hanging onto these outdated electronics can clutter your space and, more critically, harm the environment. Recycling electronics is crucial because:

  • Environmental Protection: Computers contain hazardous substances like lead, mercury, and cadmium. Proper recycling prevents these toxins from polluting the air, soil, and water.
  • Resource Recovery: Valuable materials such as aluminum, copper, and even gold can be reclaimed from old computers and reused in the manufacture of new products, reducing the need for virgin materials.
  • Data Security: Proper disposal includes the destruction of data stored on old devices, protecting against potential data theft.


Individuals are welcome to bring their outdated electronics to any South Group facility. It’s a simple, impactful way to contribute to environmental conservation and ensure your data is securely managed.

Tailored E-Waste Recycling for Institutions

While individual contributions are vital, the core of our e-waste recycling efforts is collaborating with institutions like schools, universities, banks, libraries, and others. These organizations often update their IT equipment in bulk due to financial accounting cycles or technological upgrades, leading to a substantial accumulation of e-waste.
