    I've used these as well and the service was good. Found out about them from others on here using them.

    Mate Recycling - Sounds as if they are after XP licences to be honest, I'd personally avoid.

    If you've ever had any dealings with Stone computers, they now have a disposal place at their site.

    It looks an awful lot like a meat grinder for computers.

    To add to this thread we have just disposed of more than 80 Viglen Incepta II, associated TFT, several servers and some other odds and ends. I could not guarantee to those collecting the kit that it was in working order [although some of it was]

    We tried to make sure that we were not just shifting unusable kit [or equipment that would be uneconomic to salvage/reprocess]

    Charge for disposal: None.

    They were very friendly and very prompt [they agreed to be on site at 10:00 this morning and that is when the arrived] They took all the kit without question. Excellent service!

    Contact details:

    Thanks for this, I've just contacted them.

    I've had nothing but trouble with another free WEEE collection company, will give the full story once an alternative has been booked

    I wipe the disks and reformat. Sometimes if the disks are a reasonable size I will swap them out for old smaller disks I have about the place.

    Frankly, I have never had a problem and have now found homes for upwards of 50 machines over the years.
    The issue isn't regarding the data, it is regarding the legal requirement to prove the materials were disposed of correctly under the WEEE regulations.

    There is nothing specific about not being able to give it away to others, however, if you give something away, and it ends up flytipped etc... then it wouldn't be the person who had it from you who would be in trouble - it'd be you. You'd need some form of transfer of responsibilities documentation to prove that you transferred ownership to the new person.

    Also, something to remember here is the following:

    We're based in S.E. Derbyshire and we've just used IT Collections Ltd - A computer recycling company and IT disposal centre to dispose of a lot of our old kit.

    There were circa 130 desktop units, around 20 or 30 TFT panels, some CRTs, a couple of old poweredge servers and a good 40 or 50 broken laptops (that had been cannibalised for spares over the years) and they happily took the lot.

    Cost us nothing. They provided a certificate of collection when they picked it up on Friday, and assured me we will get a certificate of secure data disposal in a couple of weeks along with a complete breakdown of kit in terms of serial numbers (I already have that anyway but it will be interesting to see if any of it "disappears" along the way).

    In terms of the servers, we removed the drives and wiped them ourselves - with the oxy-acetylene gear in the technology prep room. That was fun.

    Just had ITcollections Ltd from Derby collect a load of old equipment from free. Couldnt complain about anything, rang him up about a week ago, sorted out a date and time, and he turned up as he said he would. Definately be using them again. It puts countys collection to shame, having to wait about 8 weeks for collection from them, and we pay them 25 a year. Anyway, would recommend IT Collections Ltd. itcollections.co.uk
