    What Is PC Recycling?

    Computer recycling can be called by various other names, including e-waste recycling or electrical recycling. It describes the various processes a computer, laptop or electronic products or materials need to go through to ensure they're recycled and don't head to landfill. This could include disassembling the component to recycle as raw materials (e.g. plastic components, metal parts etc.). However, the process of manufacturing new electrical equipment releases energy, so if you truly want to reduce your carbon footprint, there are other solutions available.

    Are Computers Considered Hazardous Waste?

    Hazardous waste often refers to things like toxic chemicals, asbestos or gas canisters, i.e. anything which may be harmful or dangerous to the person handling it. However, computers can be hazardous to the environment if just thrown away. The products won't usually decompose, will release harmful gases if incinerated and materials such as metals could contaminate the environment. Therefore, it's important to find an eco-friendly PC recycling service when disposing of old computer equipment.

    Do You Offer Eco-Friendly IT Recycling Services?

    Yes. If you're looking for eco-friendly recycling centres for your IT assets and electrical items, contact us today. We have a zero-waste-to-landfill goal when dealing with computer equipment waste, offering a wide range of recycling solutions to our clients. This includes computer refurbishments, remarketing through sales channels (where someone will buy your old computers for the highest price) and a secure data destruction service.

    Where Is IT Equipment Recycled?

    All the IT equipment we collect is taken back to one of the best PC recycling centres in the country - Gigacycle HQ in Manchester. Here, we perform most of our recycling services, from restoring hard drive equipment to using old computer parts to refurbish IT assets. Computers are audited from the moment of collection, tagged with a unique code so that you can follow their progress through a secure digital portal.

    Our site is one of the most secure you'll find, so you can rest assured we recycle your computers in a safe environment.

    24-Hour Security Measures

    We monitor our recycling waste facility around the clock to make sure all items are kept safe, including CCTV cameras, on-site security patrols and metal detector searches at the door. We even have robust security barriers and doors in place, with all the items we recycle or refurbish locked in storage cages until we're ready to process them.

    Tracked Vehicles

    All computers, PCs and WEEE items we recycle are collected in GPS-tracked vehicles. Our security-vetted drivers are trained for all situations. Our van CCTV shows views from the front, rear and sides of the vehicle, including the driver cockpit and goods area where WEEE assets are locked away.

    WEEE Compliant

    WEEE describes the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment recycling standards companies need to adhere to. Our computer recycling processes follow WEEE Directive guidelines for how electronic waste is managed and recycled, ensuring it's kept safe throughout the process.

    If you need more information about our terms conditions or would like to read more about our WEEE policy, just let us know.

    Our aim is to protect the environment as much as possible, whatever the service. This includes recycling of redundant computers and hard drives.

    Do You Offer Hard Drive Shredding?

    Yes. As data destruction experts, we can meet all your data shredding needs. As well as secure hard drive shredding, we also shred magnetic media, CDs, security fobs and even mobile phones. All hard drive shredding is completed using approved techniques, which can include 6mm CPNI Approved Data Shredding if required.

    However, if you choose this form of data destruction, you won't be able to reuse or sell the equipment, so you may want to consider data erasure instead. Please note, if your data privacy policy means you can only accept data shredding on-site at your business, this is something we can provide.

    Can You Take Old Computer & Laptop Parts?

    Yes. We take back lots of different IT waste equipment for recycling, including new and old computers, used apple PCs, laptops, hard drives, keyboards, mice, circuit boards, network cables, servers and even parts of other electronics such as TVs.

    If you're unsure which electrical products and devices we can help you with, please send us a message now , using our contact form. We also have lots of useful information about items we recycle on our website and can come out to your home or business address.

    What Happens to My Personal Data?

    If you want to make sure your old data is never accessed by unauthorised persons, it's a good idea to ask for our help with all your data destruction needs. As part of our IT waste disposal solutions, we use data shredding, erasure and degaussing. Data erasure is one of the best services, as it wipes devices of all personal information, but you can still update the equipment to be used again. The process doesn't take long, thanks to our advanced software, which also confirms if the erasure was 100% successful. If not, you may accept shredding as the next stage or we can repeat the process again.

    Are You An Accredited Waste Recycling Company?

    Absolutely. As a computer waste disposal specialist, we're one of the most accredited recycling companies you'll find in the UK. This means you can rest assured old computers, laptops and parts will be managed using approved methods.

    We specialise in IT Asset Disposal (ITAD) services and data destruction solutions. Our ISO certifications include ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and ISO 27001. We're also registered with the Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) and ADISA-certified to distinction level.
