Concept Management, working with Somerset Council and XMA have been shortlisted for Partnership Excellence in the Public / Private sector Category. The Team at Concept are looking forward to attending the event to celebrate the successes of the recycling industry. And hopefully to collect an award on our own.
The awards ceremony will be held on 28 June and will bring together some of the best names in the recycling and waste management sector under one roof for an amazing evening at The Hilton, Park Lane, London.

Somerset Council wanted to reuse laptops that were end of life and being replaced by XMA Limited as part of a refresh project and to give the old laptops to young people.
The Council needed to conform with their disposal policy of complying with the Data Protection Act, ensuring that all data bearing devices are overwritten or physically destroyed and adhere to the European WEEE Regulations.
XMA Limited provided all the new equipment and tasked Concept Management to assist with the disposals. We were were able to take redundant laptops from the waste stream, overwrite the data, refurbish the laptops and set up the devices, ready for use.
We believe this has been a true partnership, between all organisations involved.
