IT-Green® has been recycling computers throughout Birmingham for nearly a decade and recognises that technology moves very quickly. Upgrades, failures and built-in-obsolescence mean that the waste stream is ever changing and we maintain a strong presence in the industry by continually adapting our service to meet this.
