    Free computer collection

    Not sure where to put this.

    Got directed to www.RRIT.co.uk - Home for free computer equipment collection. Seems genuine enough, had replies to all my emails and have a collection arranged, so I thought I would share it with you all.

    We're getting rid of equipment that would otherwise have cost us in the region of 300 to dispose of.

    (If you see any old beige units by the side of the road, it's not from here, honest.)

    Companies are springing up all over the place to take equipment nowadays. They make a packet on them. The last company we used, is also used by Cancer research. Apparently they dispose of PC's on a yearly basis!!

    I've just used PRM Green Technologies Ltd - Free IT Disposal & Recycling for all - Welcome to collect 100+ old monitors and base units and they were really simple to deal with as well.

    There service is free to education, I presume you mean the data wiping and supply of destruction certificates?

    They are located:

    PRM Green Technologies Ltd
    19 Kimberley Business Park
    Kimberley Way
    Brereton
    Rugeley
    Staffordshire
    WS15 1RE

    They came down to sunny norfolk to collect from me so I guess they go pretty much anywhere.

    Just to confirm that data destruction certificates are sent out around 4 weeks after collection.

    Do any of the above companies collect dead and broken kit such as old Motherboards, batteries, incomplete PCs and laptops?

    Some of our machines are incomplete. They've not said they won't.

    I had some incomplete pc/laptops removed with PRM but no motherboards or batteries, I didn't ask about them to be honest.
