Q?

Where do you collect from?

A.

We can collect your computers for recycling and donation to charities from anywhere in the mainland UK, usually at no charge, assuming there is a reasonable quantity. We may need to charge for very small quantities to cover the logistics costs.  For Highlands and Islands, please get in touch, as we may still be able to help. We mainly deal with corporate clients, but will also happily accept equipment from individuals.

Q?

What happens to Optical Media such as DVDs and CDs?

A.

We shred ALL CDs , DVDs and other used media that arrives in our facility, as well as checking all optical drives for stray media. These are fragmented, then recycled into new Polycarbonate products. It is essential element of your data security that Optical Media is safely destroyed. It will be simply be not worth anyone’s effort to attempt to recover data fragments from a mixed pile of shred from an unknown origin, so is safe to be sent to be reprocessed into new products.

Q?

Where does my equipment go?

A.

Q> What happens to my IT equipment?

A> “Depends”

First and foremost, we want to redistribute as much usable equipment as possible to good causes, at no cost to the recipient. However, much of the equipment that we receive is either damaged, been cannibalized for parts, or is simply not good enough to redistribute.

We ask ourselves a simple question – ” would you be happy to use this equipment yourself?” , if the answer is no, then we strongly believe that if this is the case, then it shouldn’t be donated.  We don’t distribute Pentium 4 Pcs to charity, plain and simple. Many people have the attitude that it’s “better than nothing, surely” – however, we disagree – not only is it quite a poor experience to use low quality equipment, it also has a significantly shorter lifespan – it makes no economic nor ethical sense to move outdated equipment half way around the world.  Donated equipment is also highly visible and important for your CSR profile – our clients want to be associated with donating high quality equipment and a great experience, and avoid sub-standard equipment where possible. Usually, but not always, if it’s got a Windows 7 or 8 sticker on it, then it usually falls into this category

Computer equipment that is serviceable, but fails to meet the test are still reused, but remarketed, rather than donated. Mainly , but not always, these have Windows XP or Vista stickers

Failed or unusable equipment is then sorted and processed in line with BATRRT best practise, and sent to be processed for materials recovery.

We have an aim of zero landfill for anything you send to be processed by us – with either reuse or materials recovery as the only two possibilities.

Q?

Hazardous Waste

A.

Q> Do I need to register as a hazardous waste producer?

A> If you’re producing over 500Kgs of hazardous waste, then yes, you need to register with the environment agency. We can help you with this if needed, just contact us, and we can do this on your behalf. There is currently a small fee to pay to register.

Hazardous waste (typically) falls into these categories :

CRT or Backlit TFT displays (essentially any computer monitor or television, excluding LED backlit models – TFTs contain small cold cathode fluorescent (CCFL) tubes in the panel, which contains incredibly small quantities of mercury. CRTs contain embedded lead within the glass – no more dangerous than lead crystal drinking glasses, however the Environment Agency just consider 25% of the funnel glass as “containing lead”, it makes no logical sense nor environmental impact, unless you’re powdering them, but it seems a moot point to argue, and seems to best serve the needs of the recycling industry to continue to call them hazardous; so they’re hazardous. Yes we know that the average church roof creates more lead pollution than a sea of monitors, but it’s not our call.

UPSs generally contain lead-acid batteries, which are usually spill-proof, so a lower risk than say car batteries, but do need to be processed properly.

Fridges , Freezers and Air Conditioning – these contain nasty compounds such as CFCs HCFCs that need to be properly removed and reprocessed , so are treated as hazardous. These can only be dealt with by a specialist re-processor, we don’t deal with them ourselves, but we just have them properly reprocessed on your behalf.
