    Re: Old equipment disposal - Free companies?

    Sales of any item be it a house, car or computer are all covered by the sales of goods act. You are not liable for anything if it is treated as a trade sale ie an old house sold to a builder for refurbishment or PC's sold to a asset recovery company. If however you sell a dilapidated house to someone as an end user for the purpose of them living in it and it colapses with them in it, then i am affraid it is not fit for purpose and you are liable.

    It is the same with PC's. A shop or market stall will have public liability insurance for the sale of electrical goods. You as a school will have public liability insurance but in most cases this will not cover you for the sale of goods as this is not a normal function of a school. You also have a DUTY OF CARE to your students not to give or sell them an item that may harm them.

    As for car boots etc if your the type of person who buys a £100 car off the side of the road and hopes it's not going to kill them on the way home, then you are the type of person who will buy a video off the car boot with no come back when it sets on fire. In both these cases the person who sold you the items are liable for your damages but you will have to find them. In your case you can't move the school to a new site to avoid being found by the agrieved.

    Managed to get in contact with PCB
    I did get other quotes to recycle them £350 and £295 +VAT

    PCB-Plus will Recycle them if you have a "Producer of Hazardous Waste Certificate" and with a charge of £15

    I always use Electrical Reclaim. They're free, WEEE compliant and friendly...

    They pickup anywhere between York and Oxford (depending on what it is you're getting rid of)...
