Computer recyclers such as Gigacycle comply with the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Directive (WEEE) to recycle or reuse computer waste and electrical waste. It is a requirement to be registered as a waste carrier for computer recycling with the Environment Agency.
Computers usually carry data which means the recycling process is dependent on data erasure. As a result, computer recyclers needs to be registered with the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO). A lot of computer recyclers do not understand the importance of accrediting themselves with the appropriate credentials which is where Gigacycle is a more suitable option than other computer recyclers.
Gigacycle has taken extra steps of complying with the ISO 27001 information security standard along with obtaining ISO 9001 AND ISO 14001 which means our recycling process is secure from start to finish.
