  1. We really care about what happens to our waste. Can you tell me more about where the equipment will go? And what will happen to the devices?

Ans: We aim to prevent WEEE going to landfill by encouraging its reuse, recycling and recovery so as to minimise its disposal. To achieve this, we adhere to a system which provides for the management of WEEE using best available treatment, recovery and recycling techniques. The cornerstone of our IT recycling and computer disposal activities is to ensure that such operations are carried out in such a way that environmentally-sound re-use and recycling of components or whole computers and IT equipment is not hindered, taking into account not only safety but also environmental considerations and the desirability of reuse and recycling. To this end, we prioritise the reuse of used and old computers or IT equipment and their components, subassemblies and consumables.  We seek to recycle, re-use, repair and refurbish as much of the incoming WEEE as possible so that the highest possible volume of electrical and electronic equipment is made available to UK based second users in the commercial, social or private sectors. Electronic waste in London is the main cause of 70% of the overall toxicity. Read more
