We make IT recycling simple, transparent and above all WEEE compliant.
Why IT Recycling Is Important
Protecting our environment
The more we focus on IT recycling, the lesser burden will be put on the earth’s natural resources. By limiting IT waste, the requirement to mine the earth for materials will reduce. Then eventually leading to conserving the natural resources.
Innovations in technology are increasing at a rapid pace resulting in vast numbers of unwanted computers, laptops and other IT devices. Undeniably companies opt for new equipment to maximise efficiency and enable smarter ways of working.
To support the global campaign to save our planet. Subsequently many organisations are also keen to implement eco-friendly and ethical policies to endorse their environmental credentials and promote sustainability.
At Asset Disposal we want to make the process both simple and safe for all our customers. We guarantee to securely recycle your old equipment in a hassle-free. Furthermore, secure and environmentally friendly way.
We work with a wide range of organisations across the public, private and not-for-profit sectors covering a huge variety of IT recycling projects of varying size and scale across the UK.
IT Recycling & The Environment
Small changes make a big difference
Business should always recycle their IT equipment in line with the WEEE directive and Waste Framework Directive. WEEE Directives, set in January 2005, encourages companies to reduce waste by recovering, recycling, and reusing IT products rather than disposing of them.
Crucially, just a few small changes can make a big difference to our environments. Specifically such as reuse and recycling what we can. Many components of an old IT kit can be repurposed to make new equipment. Overall this approach conserves natural resources and minimises the production of numerous greenhouse gases generated by new products. Particularly, whilst the production of recycled materials often requires less energy than the manufacture of new equipment.
Recycling also conserves energy by reducing the need for transportation of raw material. Likewise which also decreases greenhouse gas emissions and vehicle emissions during shipping. By using Asset Disposal’s recycling services, you can help maximise the reuse of our Earth’s resources. Also helping to prevent tonnes of e-waste from entering landfill sites.
Reducing IT Recycling Waste
Preventing tonnes of e-waste
At Asset Disposal we follow the principles set out in both the Waste Framework Directive (WFD), and Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) guidelines regarding IT disposal and recycling. Generally, IT products are made of metal, glass, and plastics, which can be reused if appropriately dismantled. However, apart from reusable substances, they also contain many harmful toxic substances. Unquestionably which are incredibly harmful to the environment. Therefore, IT disposal and recycling should be done taking the consequences it can have on the environment in mind.
At Asset Disposal we believe it’s vital to make our environment a cleaner place. Therefore, conserving materials, saving energy and reducing the amount of waste sent to landfills. One research shows that by the end of 2021, this planet will be exposed to approximately 50 million tonnes of IT waste. This is a worrying statistic that’s why we help businesses dispose of and recycle old IT in an eco-friendly way. Following the Waste Hierarchy model, we identify the quality and condition of all devices, ensuring only the items that cannot be reused are sent to be recycled.

We collect a wide range of IT equipment and peripherals including desktop PCs, laptops, tablets, monitors, servers and network equipment via our secure UK-wide collection service.
