We follow the Waste Heirarchy principles of Reduce, Reuse, Recycle and actively promote the reuse of redundant IT equipment – better for Corporate Social Responsibility and the environment
We operate a Zero Landfill Policy for all equipment collected and promote Reuse Before Recycling.
Computer Refurbishment and Reuse
We aim to reuse as much equipment as possible, by testing, refurbishing and checking all retired computers. Older computers can still be of use to individuals and organisations who do not require the latest and fastest machines.
This extends the life of equipment and saves the energy used in recycling which allows businesses to minimise the environmental impact of their IT disposals and improve their environmental credentials.
Computer Recycling and WEEE Recycling
Broken or obsolete equipment is recycled at Approved Treatment Facilities (ATFs) and we operate a Zero Landfill Policy for equipment removed from customer sites – environmentally this is the next best option after reuse.
Recycling has massive benefits over sending scrap to landfill – recycling one tonne of steel scrap saves 80% of the CO2 produced when making new steel.
We are registered with SEPA as a Waste Carrier/Broker and produce Waste Transfer Notes at the time of collection so you can prove your waste has been disposed of legally.
