According to HSE
"every year an estimated two million tonnes of WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) items are discarded by householders and companies in the UK. WEEE includes most products that have a plug or need a battery."Here at IT3000 we recycle electrical and electronic equipment in two ways:
By extending the longevity of equipment by reusing items where suitable. When live equipment is due an upgrade it is often suitable to reuse this as backup environment which enables us to reduce waste without impacting on performance or reliability. 2.
We use a WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) approved recycling company for any equipment that cannot be reused or refurbished. By using an approved recycler, we ensure that we are meeting the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations set out by the Government and are complying to GDPR and our ISO 27001 standards for information security.
