    EDIT; they were free also.
    Hmm, what did you have for them? Video players, tellys, UPSs etc?

    We've given all that stuff to DNA IT Recycling for free, very good company to deal with; definitely recommend them.

    Stone Group IT Recycling

    I had around 70+ PC's, 70+ monitors as well as switches, and printers.

    They took almost everything, for free. They provided an excellent service from start to finish.

    I would recommend them to anyone!
    This is a quick update from my first post......

    They came in twice to us, as the first visit couldn't get it all in the van!

    Still free, I found their guys to be very professional and very good!!

    Anyway, this is the email (or part of) that I received this morning!

    "Your collection is currently being processed at our dedicated facility, and our first priority in this process is the secure erasure of all existing data. This guarantees no embarrassing data leaks or repercussions under the Data Protection Act, and to ensure the process is as secure as it can possibly be we exclusively use Blancco, the world’s most accredited data erasure software.

    Any equipment unsuitable for recovery is recycled in house and all constituent elements returned to the remanufacturing industries. This ensures we continue to meet our objective of 0% landfill and maximum environmental benefit from being the only UK IT hardware manufacturer to be currently operating its own recycling department.

    I will ensure that all relevant paperwork is forwarded to you upon completion. I hope that you found our service valuable and I welcome any feedback you have as to how we can improve what we do.

    You are more than welcome to pass on my details to any colleagues at other establishments who may find our service of value."
