The disposal of electronics is the fastest-growing part of the world’s waste problem, with an estimated 50 million computers becoming obsolete annually. Every day, individuals and organizations around the globe dispose of mountains of E-Scrap, containing hazardous and toxic materials that pose significant environmental risks: CRT monitors with toxic lead oxide that can leach into the ground water; PC-related components & batteries with chromium, nickel, zinc, mercury and other heavy metals; plastic equipment housings that can release dangerous gases if incinerated. CSI are able to offer fully compliant WEEE recycling service to ensure your IT disposal equipment is dealt with correctly and compliantly.
Hundreds of organisations in a multitude of industries – including many Fortune 500 & FTSE 100 companies – have turned to CSI/EPC’s services. Click here to find out why.
Extending the life of IT equipment by re-using it is now commonly accepted to be the most environmentally-friendly way of recycling used items, due to the amount of energy that goes into the manufacturing of such assets. As a Microsoft Authorised Refurbisher, CSI Lifecycle Services ensures computer equipment is fit for re-use in the second user market through our long-established remarketing and brokerage channels. However, in instances when IT equipment cannot be remarketed, CSI Lifecycle Services will seek to salvage the core components for spare parts, with the remaining waste being recycled in line with the necessary legislation.
We aim to fully recycle obsolete and defective equipment in a responsible manner through full compliance with the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Directive. Additionally, CSI Lifecycle Services is compliant with and registered with the Environment Agency (NCC/060314/2014 and NC1/060733/2016) as an Approved Treatment Facility (ATF).
