Choosing A Computer Recycling Service Provider

If you have old or unused IT equipment just sitting around you may wish to consider contacting a professional recycling company that specialises in the recyling of computers and IT related equipment. There are many companies offering this service in Leeds so choosing a service provider can be difficult.

Look for the following ‘must haves’ or equivalent from a service provider:

  • WEEE Recycling 
  • Hard Drive Data Destruction 
  • Confidential Destruction/Shredding of Storage Media
  • Certificate of Data Destruction

Types of items than can usually be recycled:

  • Servers 
  • Rack Servers
  • Laptops
  • TFT Monitors
  • CRT Monitors
  • Laser Printers
  • Inkjet Printers
  • Thermal Printers
  • Barcode Printers
  • Keyboards and Mice 
  • Tower PC’s
  • Desktop PC’s
  • Telecoms Hardware
  • Tape Storage Devices
  • Scrap Motherboards 
  • Scrap Memory Cards
  • Cables 
  • UPS Battery Backup Devices 
  • Network Switches, Hubs & Routers 

Free Collection Service
Most companies will offer free collection as long as you meet their minimum quantity which usually starts at around 10+ items from the equipment listed above.

Donations & Charitable Associations
Most companies will refurbish a percentage of the computers and laptops they receive and donate to community interest organisations, schools or charities.  Some will refurbish and sell onto schools, charities and community enterprise groups at significantly low prices.  Please check.

We recommend sourcing a local service provider for the best results.
