Hardware – E-Waste Shredder
The Environment
E-Waste: Disposal and
Recycling of IT Equipment
Justin Modi
Flowchart
A variety of IT
equipment is
loaded onto a
conveyer belt
The groups of
material then
pass two eddy
currents which
remove any
aluminum
mixed with the
steel
IT equipment
is transported
to a shredder
The IT devices
go back on a
conveyer belt
The material is
then placed in
a sizer that
assorts the
material into
size based
groups
The IT
equipment is
shredded a
second time
down to 1.5in
The shredded
equipment goes
back on a
conveyer passing
under a cross
belt magnet
Flowchart Explanation
• IT equipment goes on a conveyer,
transported to shredder
A variety of IT
equipment is
loaded onto a
conveyer belt
IT equipment is
transported to a
shredder
Flowchart Explanation
• Scraps travel to a another shredder
The IT devices go
back on a
conveyer belt
The IT equipment
is shredded a
second time down
to 1.5in
Flowchart Explanation
• Passes cross belt magnet, sizer, and eddy
current
The shredded
equipment goes
back on a
conveyer passing
under a cross belt
magnet
The material is
then placed in a
sizer that assorts
the material into
size based
groups
The groups of
material then
pass two
eddy currents
which
remove any
aluminum
mixed with

• Developing
Countries
involved with
E-waste
management
Advantages
• The Public
▫ Cleaner
Environment, less
health hazards
Advantages
• Developing
Countries
▫ Less e-waste to
deal with
Disadvantages
• The Public
▫ Large,
removes space
for
residential/commercial use
Disadvantages
• Developing
Countries
▫ Less scraps
for poor
nations to
sell
