Put e-waste to good use

The signing ceremony to collaborate the partnership of Concepts Computer and Daikyo Environmental Recycling

Sometimes you will wonder or I would myself where would you throw away your old computers or electronic goods. This is hardly been highlighted and many would turn a blind eye and simply throw away their gadgets and computer stuff to bin and let the landfill take care of the old electronics. Did you know that it’s hazardous to simply throw electronic waste or e-waste to the landfill? Every time when the rubbish are segregated at the landfill, they will separate the e-waste and send it to Daikyo Environmental Recycling at Serasa.

Now I didn’t know of that or heard of it but this is something very useful to have in Brunei Darussalam. I own computers like how Brunei household own cars *lol* so there are plenty of old and unused computers lying around at home. These goods can be recycled and just leave the work to Daikyo Recycling.

In comes Concepts Computer, the IT retail leader in Brunei, and the company collaborated with Daikyo Recycling so the consumers of IT can drop off their unwanted electronics at the Concepts Computer showroom.

The deal was signed between both companies with Vincent Pao, General Manager of Concepts Computer and Alice Chan, Finance Controller of Concepts Group of Companies. The signing ceremony was held at the Brilliance Hall at Concepts Computer.

According to Jeffrey Hung, Project Manager of Daikyo Environmental Recycling, not many people residing in Brunei know that this service exists in the country. He was more than happy when Concepts Computer was willing to collaborate with this initiative. Even my posting on social media have garnered interest especially for those who supported the idea. Jeffrey shared that it’s not a straight away process even when the e-waste is delivered to Daikyo Environmental Recycling. They will dismantled the items one by one and segregate the different components. Then the items will be packed and sent to Japan for recycling purposes.

So what are you waiting for? Send in your old gadgets and e-waste to Concepts Computer showroom at Kiulap. The IT retailer is also having a special promotion where you can trade in for the items on special deals such as laptops, PCs. projectors, monitors and many more.

For more details and enquiries, please call 2233551, 2233552 or 2233553, or you can head down to Concepts showroom.

5th branch opens 


Tyre Factory Berakas is now open for business

Tyre Factory Berakas is the latest branch opened by Sin Hup Huat and it’s located along Jalan Utama Berakas. To Sin Hup Huat Company, Sunday the 11th of October marked another red letter date in the long successful history of the company.

If you ask me, it’s a very strategic place at Mukim Berakas and for all customers of SHHCO, you are probably aware of the service they provide is always top notch. The company has been incorporated since 1967 and it has been a long time coming.

Tyre Factory Berakas can deal with passenger cars, SUVs and 4x4s and even commercial vehicles. At the back area of the workshop, they have a dedicated service centre for commercial vehicle like buses and trucks. This is the first kind of service offered in Brunei Darussalam especially when it comes to a specialized section. They invested in an equipment that is able to increase efficiency in changing tyres of the commercial vehicles. Pretty cool..

For your info, Sin Hup Huat Company carries tyre brands such as Michelin, Hankook, Nankang & Triangle and many more. So you have the low range to the high end tyres to suit the budget needs of the customers.

Now with the official opening of Tyre Factory Berakas, SHHCo will be running a few promotion. You can contact them at 239 3000 or 239 2311.

The first customer during the launch

This is an interesting machine. Why so? It gives nitrogen air to your tyres instead of oxygen. Is it any good? Yes, because nitrogen air is less likely to migrate through rubber than is oxygen. This means the tyre pressure will remain more stable and you don’t have to worry about less air pressure in tyres for a long time. Normally the charges are $5 per tyre but if you change your tyres at SHHCo, the service will be free.


Balancing and alignment for vehicles and of course, the owner of the “Eagle Eye” to make alignment more efficient

They have another warehouse for the tyre brands they carry

The commercial vehicles such as buses and trucks. This is the first dedicated service area for these particular vehicles. The Land Transport Department will be pleased to know of such service.

The machine that will help increase efficiency to deal with changing tyres on commercial vehicles

Recently SHHCo invested in this heavy red equipment called Inflation Cages by Branick. What it does is to prevent the workers from being hurt should for instance, if the tyres explode, then the cage can handle the pressure and won’t impact on the workers. As you can see, SHHCo is also concern of the safety of their workers.


They also sell rims

The first customer yesterday also had a lucky dip as part of their promotion

They even sell quality tyres as low as $29. This has become a big hit for SHHCo
