Computer Recycling: Secure Asset Disposal
ITGREEN was founded to help UK business maintain a sustainable technology eco-system. That is to say, we help you ensure the waste technology generated by your business will not end its life as a poison or danger to others. Where possible, we try to ensure components are re-used, this being the most ecologically sound method of recycling since no additional processing is required.
As a leading technology recycler, ITGREEN understands the issues created around the world by inadequate recycling. Much of the UK's IT waste will find itself packed up and containerised on a ship heading for developing countries. This may sound like a noble gesture, but the truth is, once the equipment arrives, it will stripped down often by child labour, and each separate component burnt off over an open flame.

As such, ITGREEN ensure all the equipment we recycle is kept within the UK. Where devices are no longer serviceable, we break them down by core material. Metal work is compressed and sent to be smelted, plastics are ground down to form pelletised raw material for re-use in plastic bags, insulation etc. Printed Circuit Boards a re-processed to extract gold content and other materials.
