Our Professional Services are licensed by the Environment Agency and details of our licenses can be found here.
Tracking your redundant assets, removing confidential data and outsourcing an ethical recycling route can be time consuming and costly. We offer an end to end service, reducing your overheads and the burden placed upon your I.T staff. Our Service can barcode baseunits into an excel spreadsheet, documenting whether each item was dismantled or re-used.
As part of our service, we are legally obliged to produce transfer notes, documenting the number and weights of PC base units, laptops and other IT equipment transferred into our possession, all in accordance with the Enviromental Protection (Duty of Care) Regulations(1).
Note: Desktop computers are considered Controlled waste and require a "Duty of Care" waste transfer note. Conversely, laptops, PDAs and tablet computers are all considered Hazardous Waste as they have Mercury in the "Backlights" and Lithium in the Batteries.These must be "Consigned" across to us via a Hazardous Waste Consignment note.
Our collection staff will issue you with a copy of these transfer notes at the time of collection. They must be counter-signed by a representative of your organisation.
