On the strength of its logistics and processing capabilities, Enviroserve took top prize for the Electrical & Electronic Equipment Recycling Company of the Year (WEEE Processor). But this award is just the tip of the iceberg as Enviroserve has much more in store for the recycling industry in the Middle East with the highly-anticipated opening of The Recycling Hub at Dubai Industrial City set for early 2019. The facility features state-of-the-art equipment designed in Switzerland that creates minimal impact on the environment through its zero-to-landfill and zero-to-air process. The Recycling Hub is the largest fully-integrated electronics recycling facility in the Middle East, Africa and Caucasus Region (MEAC) with a processing capacity of nearly 40 Million KG of electronic waste annually. Enviroserve has partnered with industry leaders, WiseTek, to open a new unit at The Recycling Hub that provides IT Asset Disposition (ITAD) and secure IT destruction services.
“In the age of data security, the importance of the ITAD division at The Recycling Hub cannot be understated. Secure data destruction is so important to our clients.
