Since the project began, 7,183 items have
been collected from the two sites. This
amounts to 49 tonnes of old tablets,
laptops, printers, computers and other
valuable items, which would otherwise have
been sent straight for recycling.
A carbon saving of 162 tonnes CO2e is
significant and demonstrates that reusing
items not only provides a new owner with a
perfectly good piece of equipment to enjoy,
but also extends the life of the item and
benefits the planet.
At least 1,275 of the items segregated have
been suitable for re-use – which equates to
around 18% of units collected.
