Computer recycling & IT equipment disposal with 0% to Landfill
Computer equipment should only be disposed of when it is obsolete, damaged beyond repair and cannot be reused or refurbished.
Computer equipment that is illegally thrown in a skip usually ends up as landfill, causing pollution to our air, rivers and land.
Sending computers to third-world countries for reuse can result in shipments being diverted to unlicensed, unequipped processing facilities which cause massive pollution and severe health issues for their workers.
Donating IT equipment overseas although laudable does present some challenges: ensuring the equipment actually arrives at its intended destination and ensuring that when it finally becomes obsolete or ceases to function that it is recycled appropriately.
The UK and European Union regulations covering the disposal of electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) is very detailed and onerous with hefty sanctions for those who break them – inadvertently or not.
In order to meet these legal requirements MillRace IT partners with RDC, Europe’s leading IT asset management company both in terms of capacity and volume of equipment processed.
By working with and using RDC’s disposal processes this ensures MillRace IT’s customers obtain full compliance.
