1st Technologies are specialists in recycling used IT equipment, through refurbishing IT hardware products or by scrapping them appropriately. We provide recycling services to all types of businesses throughout the UK helping them to meet the regulations that surround business IT recycling.
Since the introduction of the EU Waste and Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) 2003 Directive, all UK businesses are responsible for making sure that their old IT and electronic equipment is recycled properly and in line with the regulations set out in the directive.
At 1st Technologies we understand how time consuming and costly it can be recycling your old IT equipment, we suggest implementing a disposal plan into your IT purchasing strategy.
Using the buy it back service provided by 1st Technologies as a means of taking care of your recycling needs, ensures that you are able to meet all of the legal, social and environmental responsibilities that surround the disposal of your old and redundant IT equipment.
Buying back your redundant and unused IT products allows us to either refurbish or scrap your old IT equipment. We buy back all types of IT products including PC’s, laptops, servers, netbooks,computer monitors and telecommunications equipment. By selling your old products to us you are able to maximise returns on your IT spending as well as ensure that your company is conforming with the electronic recycling regulations that are set out in the WEEE Directive. All IT recycling is performed by our authorised specialists who will also be able to provide you with the correct certification for your records.
Our aim at 1st Technologies is to always try and re-sell or recycle the IT equipment that we buy back from you as this will result in a final payment back to yourselves which helps to cover the collection and data erasure costs. Our ability to recycle or re-sell the products depends on the condition and specification of them as well as their current market value. To ensure high levels of security, we use Blancco which is a market leading data erasure software, we also make sure that company markings are removed from all pieces of IT equipment before it is resold.
