MillRace IT collects and processes redundant IT and telecoms equipment from corporate, public and third sector customers, enabling us to offer employment and training to people who are long-term unemployed and those recovering from health problems.
We operate across the UK from our base in Witham, Essex. We offer a secure, quality-controlled process by working in partnership with RDC, Europe’s largest IT recycler.
All redundant equipment is either reused, refurbished or recycled as spares with raw materials extracted from any unusable equipment. Nothing goes into landfill
MillRace IT was established in 2000 by the charity InterAct to generate income for its work by commercially recycling computer equipment.
Now MillRace IT is a Social Enterprise and Social Firm that provides training and employment opportunities for disadvantaged people.
As a Social Firm we are committed to employ disadvantaged people within the organisation wherever possible.
