We’ve all heard about e-waste and know it’s a thing. But, the severity of the issue is not as well understood as it should be.

We not only want to tell you more about it, but we need to. As a business, it's our duty to operate sustainably and help others to do the same.

The numbers can't be ignored

48 million tons of e-waste is produced every year. 78% of this ends up in a landfill. Think of it like dumping 3 million double-decker London buses into our planet.

Moreso, the UK is the second largest contributor in the world to that number.

Debunking how e-waste is "recycled"

Many tech recycling companies ship products abroad to be mined for minerals and used for parts. The process in which this is done, though, is highly dangerous, as toxic chemicals are used to extract minerals. 

We've got a lot to say about e-waste.

 

Your business can play a part in addressing our e-waste problem. 

 

Go refurbished

Use refurbished technology to kit out your team with the tech you need. Not only does it have a positive environmental impact, but it also makes business sense.

Recycle Responsibly

You can also recycle your old tech with us, through our recycle and reuse programme. This helps drive the circular economy, gives your old tech new life and gives you a bit of money to reinvest back into your business.

Simply recycling your tech won't solve our e-waste problem.

 

Giving tech some R&R

We must refurbish technology to keep it in the hands of people, not buried in landfills. Our recycling programme is designed to do just that. To effectively do this, public buy-in is needed. So, are you on board?
