    What Is Computer Recycling?

    A free computer recycling service involves the collection of electronic or electrical waste from a home or business site. Only those with a waste carrier licence can provide computer recycling London services, and the company should also be approved to offer a WEEE equipment collection. Used and refurbished computers should only be handled by this type of specialist, ensuring any recycling practices meet Environment Agency standards and data protection regulations.

    Can You Destroy Hard Drives?

    Yes! As well as our free collection and recycling service, we can fully destroy hard drives for you. This includes wiping them of confidential data using certified data erasure techniques, as well as secure hard drive shredding solutions to completely obliterate the device into tiny pieces.

    Are You WEEE Compliant?

    Absolutely. We closely follow the rules and advice outlined by the WEEE Directive. WEEE stands for ‘Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment’, looking at the targets for how this type of equipment is collected, recycled and recovered. As a computer recycling specialist, we ensure all our practices are in line with WEEE Directive regulations.

    Are You Approved By the Environment Agency?

    Yes. We’re a licenced waste carrier, including compliance with regulations for the handling, transportation and recycling of old waste electrical equipment. It means that any asset we pick up from your home or company address during a free collection will be taken to our highly secure industrial estate site in Manchester. Here, we have a 0% landfill target, recycling parts and refurbishing computers and IT equipment for reinstallation at your business premises. We can also remarket your equipment or computers to help generate revenue from the recycling process for you.

    What’s the Best Solution for Data Destruction?

    Data privacy should be an essential part of any IT equipment recycling plan. Old or used computers store a lot of information, including confidential data, which in the wrong hands, could lead to a breach in data protection and privacy policy rules. Any computer disposal or laptop recycling services you use must complete data destruction to the highest of standards. 

    We offer degaussing, data shredding and data erasure solutions. Data erasure is our most highly recommended technique, using certified methods to wipe equipment of data, replacing it with unusable information. We have lots of useful information across our co uk web pages about our secure data disposal processes.
