As more companies have embraced remote or hybrid working conditions, employees are issued with laptops, tablets and smartphones that facilitate their productivity and are tightly integrated into their workflow.
E-waste streams have not kept up with this increased demand for corporate recycling that is fast, safe and secure because there are not enough solutions to help organisations dispose of used devices responsibly and securely in bulk.
Compare and Recycle has provided mobile phone and tech recycling solutions for consumers for over a decade. Now, the company is meeting the specific needs of organisations with multiple decommissioned devices.
The new service offers competitive quotes sourced from established and environmentally responsible recyclers only; UK GDPR compliant data erasure as standard; free and insured courier collection of devices from company’s premises; and a dedicated account manager ready to answer any concerns and take care of the order processing.
Tim Nicholson, commercial manager of Compare and Recycle, said: “We can help businesses by removing their anxiety surrounding the responsible recycling of old and unwanted office tech.
“There is often a lot of data left on these devices and companies need to make sure that any sensitive company data is securely removed from them. That’s why we work with a trusted panel of recyclers who can provide certification to prove the devices have been wiped off of data to UK GDPR compliance standards.
“We hope that by working with companies on a local and national level, we can show that there is an easy solution to make sure that old devices are no longer a burden. More importantly, in a lot of cases, used company devices can be put back into circulation, considerably reducing the environmental impact of consumer electronics.”
