Charity & Community Work

Excess Technology provides IT Recovery Services offering asset auditing, removal, onsite and offsite data destruction. Also recycling or remarketing e-waste, and issuing data destruction certificates. Since we were first established, we have been involved in charitable work, and it has always been at the heart of who we are as an organization. In our own way, together with communities and partners we aim to have an impact on the lives of those less fortunate. Over the years, with our dedication to bringing about change in society, we have had opportunities to donate, and help various organizations and schools. Since 2018, we’ve helped trusted community-led organizations in Australia and Myanmar, access the tools, training and support needed to make our world a better place. Here is a look at some of our achievements so far.
Excess Technology
Since our founding in 2013, Excess Technology has been committed to providing the most secure and environmentally compliant IT recovery services for companies experiencing changes in their IT equipment needs. Our clients are able to focus on growing their business because they have us to focus on helping them to dispose of end of lifecycle computer equipment.Excess Technology was created because the recovery market for IT equipment wasn’t keeping up with the fast pace of technology advancements. Technology was growing in speed, capacity, and capability, and companies needed this new equipment to advance their missions. They were retiring equipment that still had plenty of usable life, and used computers and monitors were routinely being thrown in landfills despite laws prohibiting this practice. Excess Technology pioneered the IT asset recovery market, and found ways to help companies maximize returns from their used computer equipment, while keeping computer equipment out of landfills.We deal with a wide variety of used business-class equipment from all major brand names. We process used computer equipment in our warehouse facility in Wetherill Park, NSW. With over 20 employees, we have the expertise and know-how to securely manage the transition of your end of lifecycle IT equipment into new hands, by being affordably refurbished, or in cases where equipment cannot be salvaged, disposed of in an environmentally responsible manner.Our competitive rates, highly experienced team, complete end-to-end service, customized solutions for respective industries and maximized returns provides an efficient solution to your business needs.
