    UK IT Recycling Guide

    To get started, here are some of the questions we've been asked about UK IT recycling services.

    Are UK Computer Disposal Services Secure?

    While you should never put old computer equipment into your general waste bins, there are lots of secure options available. At Gigacycle Ltd, our training and experience mean we're proud to offer leading UK computer recycling and data destruction solutions, in-line with the highest national and international standards.

    How Do You Properly Recycle In the UK?

    Whether you're a property owner or Ltd company, understanding how to recycle items correctly is something we must all take responsibility for. Our planet is precious, so finding sustainable ways to reuse the materials we have is a vital way to reduce our carbon footprint.

    Recycling is a huge topic in the UK, with every area having its own rules about how to dispose of different materials. When it comes to IT recycling of assets such as old hard drives, one of the safest, most secure options is to hire an expert like Gigacycle Ltd to manage the whole process for you from start to finish.

    How Do I Dispose of a Computer UK?

    Whether you need to recycle old hard drives, laptops, IT parts or media devices, book a free collection with Gigacycle Ltd. You can contact us for a free quotation on any of our UK IT recycling or data destruction services.

    Is It Illegal Not to Recycle in the UK?

    There are no specific recycling laws in the UK, but if you're a business, you must remain compliant with data protection and information security standards. Both your existing and redundant IT equipment must be managed carefully while on your site and at the end of its lifecycle. Secure data destruction is something we can help you with, so contact us if you need free advice.

    What Happens to Computer Data at Disposal?

    Companies may get into trouble with the ICO if they don't use a reputable data destruction service at computer disposal. There are several different data destruction techniques we provide, and these all comply with WEEE Directive standards. This includes hard drive destruction methods, data erasure, IT equipment shredding and magnetic media degaussing. We even offer advice for ensuring you comply with GDPR regulations and implement a company data privacy policy.

    How Do I Dispose of Old Routers?

    Any old routers and other computer equipment can be collected from your site by our licensed waste collection team.

    What Happens During an IT Asset Disposal Service?

    As UK recycling and disposal experts, we manage the entire IT equipment retirement process. We ensure everything we do is completely transparent, and each stage fully complies with ISO, NCSC and ADISA standards.

    Here are some of the steps your equipment could go through when recycling with Gigacycle Ltd.

    IT Asset Collection

    Your computer disposal waste collection will be carried out by security vetted Gigacycle staff. We even have our own fleet of satellite tracked vans, coming out directly to your organisation address to ensure a totally secure process. We're registered with the Environment Agency and fully WEEE compliant.

    View Your Recycling Audit

    We audit all our processes so that you can see what's happening to your equipment, including data destruction. All assets take at collection will be itemised and given a unique barcode. This allows you to see their progress via our online secure client portal, which you'll get login details for if you're a new customer. Clients can book future services and free collections through this portal too.

    Data Erasure & Data Destruction

    We provide secure computer data destruction services for your redundant IT equipment that stores confidential information. This includes secure data wiping (data erasure) and even removing any identifying markings from the hardware.

    IT Refurbishments

    If possible, we will always refurbish and repair IT equipment, which is an Environment Agency friendly form of recycling. It takes much less energy to refurbish and reuse an item than breaking it down into parts and manufacturing new equipment. However, if the equipment is broken beyond repair, we can separate the raw materials (e.g. plastic, glass, metal etc.) for recycling.

    Get Cashback

    If companies don't want to redeploy refurbished assets at their organisation, we can use our specialist sales channels to remarket your equipment. We'll always try to obtain the highest value, and you'll receive cashback on the sale. This is a highly cost-effective way to make money from old IT equipment to help pay for any new assets you need.

    Why Choose Gigacycle Ltd?

    Here are just some of the reasons you should choose our registered IT waste disposal company.

We can pick up mobile phones, CRT monitors, laptops, hard drives, computer parts, vending machines, TVs, cables, WEEE network equipment and data tapes for shredding. Contact our team if you need more advice about what we can collect.

    On-Site & Off-Site Solutions

    As well as recycling at our waste disposal site, we can come out to your company premises to perform data destruction solutions too. This is often chosen by organisations who need to carefully manage their confidential waste as part of the terms of their own data privacy policy.
