Green Office discuss The change-driven background of Green ABLEThe Green ABLE Mission

Green ABLE has three core functions which, collectively, serve to boost the recycling of e-waste and help create a more sustainable economy. Its three core functions are:

  • Reduction Of Environmental Impact: Waste is diverted from landfills, making a meaningful contribution to saving our environment. E-waste is collected and dismantled, and the components are then recycled.
  • Corporate Social Responsibility: In addition to helping the environment, Green ABLE is also aimed at educating and empowering previously disadvantaged, unemployed and disable individuals, providing them with viable skills. This is done within a unique, sustainable incubation business.
  • Create Waste Circularity: We help other companies to create circularity in their waste streams. We work alongside out clients to design and develop finished products that will have commercial value. One instance of this is our ‘EEZIGO – Designed for mobility’ laptop stand, made from the plastic waste that comes from spent printer cartridges.

Green ABLE’s Services

In line with our primary project goals and functions, we provide the following services:

  • Collection of e-waste: We collect items such as printers, cartridges, phones, laptops, PCs and more from companies across South Africa. We then dismantle them and separate their recyclable components. We then sell these to recycling operations.
  • Bee Benefits: We provide a means for companies to contribute to BEE and engage in meaningful corporate social responsibility projects. Companies have the opportunity to sponsor learners at Green ABLE, creating employment, supporting skills development and promoting workplace experience.
  • Creating Circularity: We help companies to close the loop with their e-waste. We can assist in manufacturing products from waste, thereby creating circularity within a business.
