Computer waste recycling is not just a WEEE issue, when choosing a partner for the disposal of computers, you must consider the data security implications and ensure that there is a robust procedure in place. Secure computer disposal means ensuring that you mitigate the chance of a breach by ensuring the hard drives are erased or physically destroyed.

Our computer disposal services ensure that we provide to you a compliant, robust process that meets and exceeds the WEEE directive and ensures secure disposal of computers, laptops, servers and any other form of data bearing device.
Our staff are vetted to BS:7858 and are specialist in computer equipment disposal, we perform full testing of the equipment and promote re-use. Re-use is from PC disposals is significantly better for the environment. Legislation is leaning towards encouraging re-use rather than re-cycle but as the first focus of Concept Management is data security it is a trade-off between ensuring data is securely sanitised and making processing of the asset financial viable for re-use. With the disposal of computer equipment, Concept Management encourages best commercial practise in functionality testing, repair and re-engineers but also consider commercial viability of these practices.
Used Computer Disposal
Used computer disposal means that there will be a need for the disposal of computer parts when equipment cannot be re-used. This raises issues within the WEEE directive and at Concept we feel that environmental legislation is a difficult, oft misunderstood topic that is subject to wide interpretations. There is a variance in interpretation and as a result, an opportunity arises to operate under exemptions whilst processing EEE, UEEE or WEEE.
However, Concept Management insist on being Environment Agency approved ATF and AATF and do not work under any exemptions. We provide environmental permits and credentials, written procedures for all recycling activity undertaken on site and management of downstream partners who may perform subsequent processes on e-waste.
Concept Management wherever possible encourage maximum opportunity of re-use of all computer hardware disposal equipment but the Client is the key decision maker within the process.

WEEE legislation and Computer Recycling
New legislation came into force in 2007 to cover waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE). The regulations have significant implications those who treat or recover WEEE, and stipulate that users must store, collect, treat, recycle and dispose of WEEE separately from other waste. It is now a requirement that you obtain and keep proof that your WEEE was given to a waste management company such as Concept, and was treated and disposed of in an environmentally sound way.
