Gigacycle specialise in secure and WEEE compliant laptop disposal.
Gigacycle handles laptop destruction & disposal requirements on a case-by-case basis as we can often generate revenue through re-marketing of laptops. Revenue generated is passed back to the client as a revenue payment. The collection and erasure holds no cost so nothing is detracted from the revenue returned.
We use our own drivers and secure logistics to collect your redundant laptops from any location in the UK mainland.
The amount of electronic and electrical waste produced each year in the UK continues to grow at an alarming rate. As many electrical components contain harmful substances such as mercury or lead, disposal via landfill or incineration poses serious environmental risks.
In 2006, The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive was introduced in the UK which stipulates regulations for environmentally-compliant disposal of electronic waste. Its main aim is to encourage computer and laptop recycling, and to reduce the amount of electronic waste going straight to landfill.
Current security laws including the Data protection Act of 1998 also ensure that potentially sensitive data must be dealt with safely and securely to ensure no information reaches the public domain. Severe penalties have been put in place to discourage companies from bypassing this essential aspect of the computer and laptop recycling and disposal process.
Gigacycle laptop disposal has always guaranteed 0% landfill and 100% data security.
