What should be recycled?

PC’s, laptops, servers, compute towers, desktop PC’s and workstations should all be recycled. Reasons why to recycle other than the obvious include protecting you and your organization from prosecution because many States have now passed environmental protection laws that in summary mean all your office electronics need to be disposed of via recycling. This also means you will need to call a disposal company to remove unwanted computer monitors and CPUs from your location for recycling or alternatively you can send them to a recycler. We are an authorised collection and recycling company, able to help you recycle all your office’s computer equipment, from keyboards to computer screens and cpus we can manage the lot.

What happens if we don’t recycle old computers and PC’s?

Apart from poisoning the earth for ourselves as well as future generation if you don’t recycle your old PC’s you personally and your business could be prosecuted by the State for breaking environmental laws. It’s not the best reason to recycle but it is a pretty important one, losing your job because you didn’t recycle a few junk PC’s isn’t going to look good. That said there is no need to worry – our PC Disposal and CPU recycling services are all State approved and ensure that all your e-waste is managed correctly both legally and environmentally.

How is an old CPU recycled?

The term CPU relates to a central processing unit or in other words a computer, server, laptop, mainframe and even a cell phone. Recycling a CPU can be done in several different ways, after you’ve sent us or we’ve collected your trash CPU’s we start the recycling process by taking the old computers and monitors apart, splitting everything and sorting it into plastics, glass and different types of metals. These materials are all sorted into boxes and sent off to be reclaimed either by melting or smelting down into their purest form so they can be reused to manufacture new products.

What's recycled in my computer screen

Monitor recycling is a very complex business especially when it comes to CRT or cathode ray tube computer screens. A CRT monitor is a larger unit than the modern flat screen often seen in offices today. They are still in production and provide many recyclers with a nightmare to recycle. Our recycling facility has custom built equipment that is designed to help manage the safe disposal of CRT monitors. It is possible to reclaim, plastics and metals from the monitor casing. However reclaiming or recycling the glass content is very hard because it has large amounts of lead within it. As part of our recycling process we break down the glass content of a monitor making it easier to recycle.
