“E-waste” refers to electronic products that are unwanted, not working, and nearing or at the end of their “useful life.” Computers, televisions, VCRs, stereos, copiers, and fax machines all fall under this category. The ongoing challenge of how best to dispose of so many used and unwanted devices isn’t a new one and dates back at least to the 1970s.
If you require a Waste Collection, simply give us a call or send an email via our contact form. Ideally we would need a breakdown or inventory of what materials you have. Depending on the type of electronic equipment we may ask for the products material safety data sheets if you have them. Once we have received the inventory we will be able to provide you with a price for the collection and disposal of your waste.

Our electronic waste disposal services are fully compliant with the DEFRA standards for the treatment recovery and recycling of materials from WEEE. We transfer electronic waste to approved authorised treatment facilities (AATFs) and provide the relevant consignment notes for electronic waste disposal, including inventory reporting for multiple items collected from offices owned by our commercial clients. We follow strict protocols for each electronic waste sub stream to ensure that the correct treatment methods are applied to all items in line with Environment Agency guidelines, upholding our legal duty of care for disposing of all waste electricals.
Electronic Waste Disposal Specialist Services
We collect waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) across all electronic waste categories including battery powered tools and equipment, non-infectious medical devices, and fluorescent tubes. We manage all health risks associated with collecting electronics that contain hazardous materials, ensuring that breakable and fragile glass components are not damaged or broken during the removals process. We safely store waste electricals containing hazardous chemicals and transport them to the best specialist treatment facilities to be processed.
There are 10 broad categories of WEEE produced across residential and commercial sectors, including construction industry electronics like power tools and machinery. All electronics contain materials and components that can be recycled, and this is reflected in electrical and electronic equipment (EEE) waste being largely restricted from landfill. Where EEE contains hazardous chemicals or is not yet recoverable, it is placed into landfills lined with non-porous materials that stop waste chemicals from leaking out into the surrounding soil. We support the sustainable disposal of e-waste by accessing reuse and repair initiatives where they are available, and we work with our clients to find the best environmental solutions for their electronic waste disposal needs.
Recyclable IT equipment covers desktop and laptop computers, mobile devices, computer monitors and all ancillary equipment such as headphones, keyboards, and external speakers. We collect all IT waste, disposing of it in accordance with individual customer requirements, from refurbishment and recycling to shredding and materials recovery.
We handle large volumes of IT waste from the commercial sector including server and desktop hard drives that are classed as both hazardous and confidential as they often contain large amounts of sensitive data. As businesses are especially obliged to protect company information stored on hard drives, these must be transported to Approved Authorised Treatment Facilities (AATF) for disassembly and materials recovery. Approved ATF status is the required licensing standard for facilities that treat WEEE waste in the UK, and are the only facilities allowed to issue evidence to the waste producer concerning the treatment of waste electricals, which is a legal requirement for electronic waste disposal.
We collect small electricals from residential premises as a standalone service or as part of general man and van and house clearance, including all mains operated and battery powered appliances within the home. We also collect all large home electricals; however, the volume and weight of items will need to be considered and surcharges may apply for hazardous waste electricals like fridges and LCD monitors requiring a consignment note. Consignment notes are issued to the producer of the waste after it has been transferred to a facility, as proof that it has not been fly tipped or otherwise illegally disposed of.
