Re-use extends the life of IT assets and makes optimal use of the resources already expended in them. Re-using IT equipment reduces the demand for the extraction and processing of raw materials required to manufacture new devices. This leads to conservation of resources, minimises environmental impact from resource extraction, and decreases waste generation.
Reuse of IT equipment is achieved by:
Reusing IT equipment through re-sale offers a wide range of benefits, including cost savings, environmental sustainability, data security, and support for various organisations.
We ensure that all data is eradicated from devices (with full certification provided) prior to remarketing IT assets for sale. Through our extensive trade networks, we remarket items suitable for reuse and, in many cases, a revenue share on sales is offered back to the customer.
When re-sale of an item in its entirety is not an option (due to obsolescence or beyond economical repair), we dismantle equipment to extract its components. Recovering components reduces the volume of electronic waste that ends up in landfill, contributing to sustainability efforts. It also reduces the demand for raw materials and energy required for manufacturing new components. By reusing the recovered components, valuable resources like metals, plastics, and rare earth elements are conserved, reducing the need for extraction and processing of these materials.
Any residual materials from the component recovery process and items considered to be hazardous waste are segregated and processed at a licensed WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) recycling plant.
