I was wondering if anyone in the Birmingham area knows of any companies who can safely, and reliably dispose of old IT kit - printers, scanners, CRT monitors, assorted odds and ends.
Preferably for free, or a very small fee!
PRM Green Technologies
Part of The M-Tech Group
0870 224 7744
I believe the collection and disposal service is free.
As strawberry mentioned, Lancs Computer Waste Services have recently collected alot of our old equipment at no charge, and they even give you a certificate which, depending upon how proud you are of recycling, you can frame!
They didn't seem too picky as to what we had and were decent enough chaps!
We have used LCWS also on two occasions and no problems at all.
I've sent LCWS an email.
Direct Assembled Komputers Ltd - Home base in Erdington
Its registered on the Link2Ict website I have brought spare parts before of them, I'm in the process of disposing old gear, they have Quoted me £90 when another company quoted me £250. i'll try and keep you informed
I have used Excel Data Systems (Excel Datasystems). They were generally very good, just a little slow providing the disposal certificate.
They would charge me a fee for the collection but for each base unit or monitor, etc I sent them they would give back £1-2. If you sent them enough stuff you could even come out in profit. You would need to contact them for the cost of a trip to Birmingham and for their current 'price' list.

My company offers Free IT Recycling in Birmingham and the surrounding areas
Stone Group IT Recycling
Have used these twice, and they have been exceptional both times.
First time went without a hitch.....
second time, they had trouble with their van, so could only take half. They came back, asap, to pick up all the rest, and it was all done for free.
Can't argue with that!
*EDIT* They are in Staffs, so should be an easy job for them!
Yes, Stone Group are another good computer recycling company for the Staffs area.
Environmental Computer Recycling cover a more southern region which includes the West Midlands, Worcestershire, Warwickshire, and Herefordshire.

KMD offer a free service, but there is a minimum amount of equipment for free. They are generally quick on collecting your items.
I've used PRM before but it took several weeks before the van was in my area, and the second time I tried to book them they returned my call a month later, so KMD had already took my items.

+1 for stone. We used them last year when our original recyclers started charging and were impressed. I have a mail folder full of groups offereing to recycle for free including one called computer-recycle who are offering vouchers but I have never used them
