Valpak News - Free, Compliant, Data Secure IT Recycling Service

by Ellie Williams | Apr 19, 2016
Valpak Limited and Stone Computers are working in partnership to offer a free IT recycling service across mainland UK. The service will allow local authorities to offer local businesses and educational facilities a safe and environmentally sound disposal route for old, outdated and unwanted IT equipment.

Would you like to offer local organisations a free, fully compliant, data secure IT recycling service?

With local authority approval, reconditioned IT equipment can be made available for sale within the local community and agreements can be put in place to ensure that the local authority or other local organisations using the service will receive a percentage of any seen value. Any equipment that can’t be repaired will be recycled.

All collected e-waste that is reused or recycled will generate waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) recycling and reuse evidence. This will contribute towards the UK’s WEEE targets and, if recycling requests are captured via a local authority’s website portal, the arising data could be used in Waste Data Flow reporting which will help to increase local authority performance figures.

By signing up to this service, local authorities and local communities will benefit from:

  • Free of charge collection, processing and data destruction
  • Free of charge Waste Transfer documentation and Certificates of Destruction
  • Rebating on reusable assets in line with fair market values
  • An option for higher level data wiping (HMG IAS5 Higher Level ) - Chargeable
  • Optional full Asset Reporting – Free of Charge
  • Simple online collection request facility via Valpak’s website or embedding of the request form within Council’s own website
  • Web portals for refurbished staff / student buy back options
  • Rebates commuted to chosen charities or other chosen causes
  • Access to Stone refurbished asset sales site – Encore

 

If you are interested in using or offering this service to organisations within your local community, please contact Valpak via email info@valpak.co.uk. Alternatively, please call us on 03450 682 572.
