disposing of
your IT assets

IT asset disposal is when an electronic device like a laptop, server, tablet, phone or monitor is collected and taken away by a third party to be reused, recycled or destroyed.

    We offer a closed loop recycling programme to dispose of your IT assets. Disposal’s only part of the picture though, and our assured, ethical and certified service removes any of the risks of asset disposal for your business, whether it’s data security or environmental compliance.

    Whatever the asset – whether it’s tablets or servers, laptops or mobile phones – we destroy what needs to be destroyed and reuse the rest. This closed loop approach guarantees that zero goes to landfill, and zero data escapes destruction.

    The environmental challenge

    In January 2019, the World Economic Forum and the United Nations E-waste Coalition reported that around 50 million tonnes of electronic waste is produced each year. Most of it is incinerated or dumped in the landfills of the world’s poorest countries.

    “For every 1 million cell phones that are recycled, 35,274 lbs of copper, 772 lbs of silver, 75 lbs of gold, and 33 lbs of palladium can be recovered.”

    What are the risks to your business?

    Ensuring data security

    If we can resell we will, and we’ll offer you a competitive market price.

    Any items which cannot be reused are recycled and broken down into core components.
    What can’t be reused?
    • Cables
    • Motherboard
    • Remanufactured toner cartridges
    • Plastic casing and housing

    The planet produces around 50 million tonnes of electronic and electrical waste each year. It weighs more than all of the commercial airliners ever made. How much is currently recycled? Just 20%.
