    We have disposed of a lot of kit over the years, seems like loads more companies have started recently. Lots of companies try and tap us up for our equipment, offering free collections, the service is usually terrible and we werent confident that the equipment wasnt being exported. We last used Pure Planet Recycling and I was very impressed with their service, a small charge was levied for the collection, but we did fill a van load, including broken crt monitors, so i thought they were fairly priced. They crushed my hard drives in front of me and certified the process so i was more than pleased.

    Environmental Computer Recycling offer a free collection service for 20+ certain items of IT kit. They also deal with many schools across the West Midlands, and are also council approved.

    Another vote for PRM Green - brilliant company - they take everything and always turn up when they say they are going to. They even take bits of computers as well as the complete ones.

    I discovered WEEE approved computer recycling for Kent, Hamphire, Surrey and Sussex. yesterday. Had a chat with Paul Hodge there, very helpful (particularly as I was trying to sell to him)

    They mention (as we used to in the old days), they might even be able to return some value on what they collect to you. This will of course depend on the spec and condition of the kit you are releasing. I have an e.mail address for him (I won't post it on here), but if you have a list of what needs shifting I'll hapily forward it on for you. It might even score me some brownie points (I'm so shallow)

    With metal prices currently, I can't think you'd need to talk to anyone who needed to charge you for collection. Those in the trade I used to compete against when we did this could be seen to be rubbing their hands together when someone asked "how much" it would be to dispose of their old product. The only charges I can think you might need to bear may be the cost of data wiping the hard drives if this is required.

    Hope this helps

    Hi guys,

    We also BUY old kit off you. We have several partners that do it so we negotiate the best price for you. I just need to know what kit you want to get rid of ( some kit might be worth loads, others nothing ) and i'll get you a price

    Cheers
