I bet there are plenty of primary schools that could also do with a free tech refresh!
Gonna give LCWS and DNA a call today.
LCWS dont like picking there phone up do they..................tried calling them 4 times this morning
You didnt try local schools then?
LCWS wont take are kit as there van is too small :mad:
DNA cant pick anything up till 8th Jan :(

Try Safe PC Disposal :: Home ::
We used to use DNA until they started charging. These guys are free.
I just got a phone call from the company I mentioned earlier.
(the one in Port Talbot, South Wales)
They are currently offering to collect anything from us totally free.
(I don't have anything to collect, but this may be useful to someone else here, somewhere in South Wales)
Safe PC Disposal booked for 23rd :D
DNA I.T Recycling Have built a strong business by offering all our schools in the past a totally free service. Our service has remained free and we never intend to charge for collecting, processing and data wiping. However we have incurred increased costs from the Environment Agency which unfortunately means we now have to charge a fixed £25.00 fee for every collection. We pay a fixed fee to the Environment Agency for each consignment note we produce, we add no charges for anything else other than this. We still believe however you won’t find a legal service better or cheaper than ours and we thank our customers for their continued support

I emailed the Environment Agency to query this charge, here is the response back...
We are unable to comment on prices charged by other companies.
A company may produce their own consignment note, so long as they contain the same information and are in a similar format to the ones which the Environment Agency produce.
A template can be downloaded from the Environment Agency's website free of charge.
If a company wishes to buy a pre-printed pack of consignment notes, which are printed using multi-coloured copies on no carbon required (NCR) paper. The cost of these packs are £20.00 for the standard procedure packs and £25.00 for the multiple collection packs. They can do so by calling the below number.

Make of this what you will. I for one find this practise by DNA to be highly dubious. However, they are a company and need to make a profit, so they can charge what they like. I for one would choose a free one rather than one that charges £25 for a sheet of paper that is available from the EPA in bulk packs.
Don't get me wrong DNA are very good, but these companies make enough money as it is. Safe PC disposal were just as good. Didn't even have to leave the office they did all the work!!
Grr just had DNA cancel on me at the last minute. Next collection they can do is 11th Jan which is no good for us!
Would have been OK if they'd cancelled a day or two in advance (they don't have enough drivers because of a funeral - which they should have known about!) so that I could try to organise an alternative collection. Need to get this stuff collected as it's sitting on the stage at the moment with no where to go back to :(
Just ringing around at the moment trying to find someone that can collect ASAP
