So, why recycle?

Computer hardware is continually being modernised and updated leading to millions of laptops and computers being discarded every year. IT hardware often contains toxic and hazardous substances (such as mercury polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) and lead) making this IT waste dangerous if not disposed of correctly. In the UK alone, it is estimated that we dispose of over 2 million tonnes of electronic waste each year so the need to do so safely, securely and in an environmentally-friendly way has never been greater.

In 2006, new legislation came into force, the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Directive (WEEE) ensures that companies must adhere to environmentally-compliant electronic waste disposal. It aims to encourage computer and laptop recycling and to reduce the amount that ends up in landfill.

What’s more, the Data Protection Act holds companies legally accountable for the safe and secure disposal of their confidential or sensitive data. You’ve probably heard news stories of companies allowing confidential data to reach the public domain and suffering hefty fines and even legal proceedings as a result. In many cases, this fault has been traced back to the recycling and disposal process. But, that simply isn’t possible with CDL.

At CDL, we guarantee 100% data security and compliance to the WEEE Directive
