How we recycle

Put simply, Tech Recycle collect redundant and end of life IT and electrical equipment from companies of all sizes, then refurbish the equipment and redeploy the equipment to companies, charities, start-ups and families that don’t have the budget to buy new equipment. This service is completely free.

We destroy all data passed to us safely and securely (find out more here).

Any erasable functioning media is wiped using a multipass binary overwipe. Any non-functioning or non-erasable media is physically destroyed. Whichever method is used, the data is completely and irretrievably eradicated.

The destruction process meets or exceeds many internationally recognised standards including the Communications Electronics Security Group (CESG) Commercial Product Assurance (CPA), NATO CONFIDENTIAL, NATO RESTRICTED, NATO SECRET and COSMIC TOP SECRET, Defence INFOSEC Product Co-Operation Group UK (DIPCOG) and exceeding standards provided by the US Department of Defense. A data destruction certificate is provided at the end of the process.

Any equipment we are unable to refurbish is broken down and ethically recycled. We don’t allow anything to go to landfill, and don’t export anything waste the UK.

We collect from anywhere in the UK. If you would like to arrange a collection now please fill the form below, or email collection@tech-recycle.com with a list of the items you would like recycled and your full contact details.

Arrange a free collection

    Please complete the form below to organize a collection. Please be as detailed as possible to help us organize your collection quickly and efficiently.

    Once you have submitted the form, our scheduling team will contact you to arrange a suitable time for collection. You will receive a Duty of Care (Controlled Waste) notice at the time of collection. When we have processed the equipment any relevant data destruction certificates will be issued. All disks are wiped to the same standard.

    If you choose the premium disk service at a charge of £6 per item you will receive a detailed certificate including asset numbers and serial numbers of disks. Our standard service provides a general certificate confirming all data on drives/media has been destroyed.

    We require a minimum of 10 qualifying items for a free collection. Items such as PCs, TFT monitors, laptops and servers are qualifying items. We will accept all forms of electrical equipment whether working or not. This includes but is not limited to PCs, laptops, tablets, servers, UPS batteries, cables/keyboards, printers, photocopiers, shredders, phones and phone systems. We also accept industry specific items such as video, photographic, audio and conferencing equipment, educational hardware, test and development equipment. There is no upper limit to what we can collect and regularly de-commission datacenters, computer suites, ICT classrooms and assist with downsizing.
    The only exceptions to the free service are CRT monitors and televisions or when collecting less than 10 items. We charge £7 per CRT monitor, £14 per television and £25 for less than 10 items. All prices are plus VAT. We are unable to collect fridges/freezers unless a certificate of degassing is provided.
