The computers follow the following process:
Collection – Transportation to facility – Testing – Recycled or Reused
We aim to reuse all working components of a computer although sometimes they have to be recycled. Computers that are suitable for reuse will be sold and the salvageable parts are used to refurbish other computers. Anything that is sent for recycling is done so within the UK.
