E-Cycle Limited is a New Zealand owned and operated company. We provide responsible, environmentally friendly recycling of end of life electronic products or electronic waste (e-waste), which includes almost anything with a plug or batteries. We also offer hand held battery recycling and packaging material recycling solutions.
Our key objective is to protect the environment. We do this by diverting products, components and materials from landfill. Once products are dismantled and separated into component or material categories in our recycling plants, they are sent to reputable local and international specialist recyclers for conversion back into raw materials or for re-use in new products. Our solution includes precious metal recovery and safe management of hazardous substances.
We are also committed to data integrity. We offer software-based data erasure, with certificates. This is suitable for hard drives, storage devices, tablets and cell phones. We also offer physical destruction via a large industrial shredder in our Auckland facility.
We have 30 + partner drop off sites across New Zealand to receive products from businesses and the community for recycling. These products are consolidated and then transported to our recycling facilities in Auckland and Christchurch. This allows us to minimise freight costs and carbon footprint across the country. Contact us for your nearest drop off site.
Unlike many other developed countries, the e-waste industry is not yet regulated in New Zealand and there is no enforced product stewardship yet. We hope this will change in the near future. We only work with responsible downstream recyclers and we comply with the Basel and Stockholm Conventions, which regulate the export of hazardous waste.
We do recycle some products at no charge/free to customers. These usually include, computers, servers, mobile phones and UPs units as we can generate some monetary value out of the materials recovered. We have to charge to recycle other items such as TVs, photocopiers, printers and other miscellaneous items, to ensure the dismantled materials are responsibly recycled locally and internationally.
There are also significant logistics costs incurred, including freight, receiving, recording, handling and storage. We have also invested in buildings, people and machinery.
We offer collections of products from customers. Please see the Collection Request form, where you can enter your collection requirements. We will respond by email or phone to discuss your requirements and confirm a quote.
Suitable for used, working IT equipment which is due to be replaced or upgraded and may require secure destruction or still have a ‘second life’.

Do you want to recycle old and unwanted household batteries used in handheld and electronic devices?
E-Cycle provides an environmentally friendly recycling solution, which will keep these batteries out of landfills.
Batteries are highly engineered electrochemical devices that can convert chemical energy into direct current for release on demand to power your toys, tools and electronic devices. We want to maximise the resource recovery of the valuable and finite materials in batteries.
Single use and rechargeable batteries which you use in your household or work place. These include AA, AAA, C, D and 9V size batteries. We also accept cell phone batteries and laptop batteries.
These batteries usually weigh less than 1kg each and are used in devices such as toys, remotes, stereos and cordless power tools etc.
The battery chemistries displayed on the battery for identification are usually alkaline, lithium, nickel metal hydride, carbon zinc and a few others.
