We take responsibility for providing a duty of care for our client’s confidential information and provide a number of data destruction methods such as Data Wiping, Disk Shredding and Disk De-gauzing.
We can provide you with hassle free WEEE cages (ideal if you are carrying out staggered hardware refreshes) or you can arrange a scheduled collection from anywhere on mainland UK by getting in contact with us.
Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) contains hazardous substances which can have a negative impact on the environment and human health if they are disposed of incorrectly. Recycling WEEE also helps to recover valuable resources which therefore reduce the need for raw materials.
By collecting WEEE separately, as a society we can ensure it is sent for specialist treatment and recycling and thereby further protecting our environment.
On the 2nd January 2007 the UK Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) regulations came into force. The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Directive (WEEE Directive) is EU legislation which aims to minimise the impact of waste electronic goods on the environment, by increasing re-use and recycling and reducing the amount of waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) going to landfill.
The directive seeks to achieve this by making producers of WEEE responsible for financing its collection, treatment and recovery, and by obliging distributors of WEEE to allow consumers to return WEEE free of charge.
