How is a laptop recycled?

  • We inspect each laptop to see if it can be reused. Can we refurbish the notebook to have a second life elsewhere?
  • We remove all hard drives from the laptops. This allows us to destroy the data held on them. This is either through secure wiping or physical destruction of the drive. For all types of hard drive including solid state drives.
  • If you need a detailed recycling report we scan serial numbers of each system at this stage. This is then transferred onto the recycling/destruction certificate.
  • If the laptop doesn’t work, could any part help repair another machine?
  • If the machine is end of life or beyond economic repair we recycle and recover the materials. This includes the circuit board, screen, cd drive etc.
  • A recycling report/data destruction is produced once the job is complete.
