IT Recycling London

What is IT Recycling London?

IT Recycling is a process to convert waste materials into new products to prevent waste of potentially useful materials, reduce the consumption of fresh raw materials, reduce energy usage, reduce air pollution (from incineration) and water pollution (from landfilling) by reducing the need for “conventional” waste disposal and lower greenhouse gas emissions as compared to plastic production. Recycling is a key component of modern waste reduction and is the third component of the “Reduce, Reuse and Recycle” waste hierarchy.

Why is computer recycling important?

Many IT and electrical components contain toxic and carcinogenic substances such as mercury, polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) and lead. Inappropriate computer recycling and disposal can therefore lead to the pollution of the ground, water, and the air if certain components are incinerated during disposal. In the UK, it is estimated that over two million tonnes of electronic waste is generated each year, so it is imperative that it dealt with in the correct manner.

 Companies are now legally obliged to safely dispose of potentially sensitive information in accordance with current security laws and the Data Protection Act of 1998. Non-compliance can result in fines of up to £500,000 so it is imperative that companies ensure computer recycling and disposal is carried out both safely and securely.

Reduce Environmental Impact

Here at RB Direct Services we take our environmental responsibilities very seriously. We help our customers throughout the planning and IT Relocation London to reducing the amount of waste you produce is the best way to help the environment. There are lots of ways to do this. For example:

  • Buy office furniture products that don’t have a lot of packaging. We work with the top suppliers who are now actively reducing their packaging while maintaining the same protection level previously enjoyed at the same or less cost. Some products are wrapped in many layers of plastic and paperboard even though they don’t need to be. You can also look for things that are packed in materials that don’t require a lot of energy or resources to produce.

  • Instead of buying something new you could consider a second hand options. We have many partner companies that not only have a large selection of second hand furniture items but also have flexiable rental terms that suit all budgets and terms through responsible Office Removals.
