    Hello All,

    If you have old equipment that needs disposing off, please get in touch.

    Ask me about our GreenITBox the innovative, green, compliant and certified way to dispose of your redundant IT kit.

    There are 2 sizes small and large.

    Thanks

    In what way is it innovative, what makes it green, what is it compliant with and by whom is it certified?

    There are 2 sizes small and large.
    How much does each cost?

    Don't send me a PM, post your answers here for future reference.

    If there is a cost, I have used a company in the past that don't charge providing there are more than 30 "qualifying items". If memory serves these are usually large items like PCs, laptops, monitors, etc. After a few weeks they send you a destruction certificate for any hard drives.

    What about the stuff that can't easily be recycled like motherboards, laptops that have been stripped of anything useful like memory, keyboards and screens?

    I can get rid of whole units easily enough and usually make some money for the school, it's the other stuff we can't shift.

    The local scrap man would probably take the old cases off you for nothing if they have enough metal content in them.

    We used them twice last year as we were getting rid of loads of old PCs, printers, monitors, etc - in total 3 transit van loads. I spoke to one of their guys the other day and he said that they may also take old TVs but they don't count as a "qualifying item".

    I have used a company called LCWS who have always dealt with my disposable IT equipment in the most professional way, Oh and they are totally free BTW.

    LCWS - Where IT disposal and recycling do not cost the earth
