Change is good!
As you will know from information in the media there is general belief that emissions of greenhouse gases are a key factor in climate change and that urgent action by people, worldwide including governments, business leaders and individuals is required to ensure emissions firstly stand still and then are reduced so further harm to world is stopped.
The overall message to nations is one of less reliance on fossil fuel and mining of raw materials. Nations need to work on developing a low-carbon society. Recycling can help and especially recycling electrical and electronic waste. It supports the recovery of valuable metals and plastics which ultimately reduces the need for mining and drilling.This results in the reduced use of fossil fuel and processing of raw materials.
Each year, people throw away million of electronic appliances so we have to constantly remind ourselves that recycling electronic waste helps protect our health and our environment by:
- diverting thousands of tons of waste from landfills and incinerators;
- keeping toxins such as lead, mercury and cadmium from contaminating the air, water and soil; and
- conserving natural resources by allowing valuable materials to be reclaimed and reused, rather than using virgin raw material.
Recycling at Work – schools, offices, shops, warehousing…..
We know TIME is a limiting factor. You may be studying, travelling, caring and/or working up to 70 hours a week and when you arrive home WEEE recycling is not a priority. Leaving electrical stuff out in the evening for collection the next morning is another job to add to a long list!
Recycle IT an award winning electrical recycler works daily to help create cleaner, greener communities and raise awareness about electrical recycling. Our collection service aims to make it easy for companies to recycle electronic items and our complementary WEEE to Work collection encourage organisation to hold WEEE to Work days where staff can bring electrical or electronic items to work for a free collection. We will accept any item with a plug or battery but its general small and medium size items that staff bring along. So if you work in an office, school, college warehouse or production site we can help you and your colleagues recycle items from home!
You can bring old or unwanted electrical items to a central location on a pre-arrange day and our team will pick everything up for free. We have vehicles to service large buildings or small offices and everything in between and we are licensed and authorised to help you.
