WEEE Compliant Computer, IT and Electronic Equipment Recycling & Disposal - How It Works
Step 1: We arrange a date to collect your computer and electronic equipment for recycling and disposal. Each collection is allocated a job number which is used to track the process from collection to final disposal. You will receive a waste transfer note at the point of collection.
Step 2: The equipment will be transferred to the central storage and warehousing facility with full racking and 24 hr manned security. All equipment is logged and held in a secure area.
Step 3: Working items, which are suitable for refurbishment and resale are cleaned, data wiped,
and all badges are removed before upgrading is undertaken. This equipment is then re-sold to various outlets. Hard drives always go through data eradication procedure before reuse.
Step 4: For equipment not suitable for refurbishment, a manual dismantling process is undertaken and parts are harvested for use as spares in upgrading of re-saleable items. Hard drives that are unsuitable for reuse are shredded prior to dispatch for smelting and metal recovery.
Step 5: Sub-assemblies and materials are then segregated for recycling. Wherever possible these
materials (e.g. aluminium, copper, circuit boards, cabling etc) are then dispatched to licensed recycling facilities where they are used in place of raw materials in industrial processes.
Step 6: Where materials are unsuitable for recycling (e.g. contaminated plastics) disposal to licensed
landfill is currently employed.
Step 7: You will receive a certificate of data destruction for your records.
