WEEE Recycling

WEEE recycling helps to turn your business’s old IT equipment into new products without compromising your security.

Shredall SDS Groups works with a WEEE-approved partner to make sure that any recyclable electrical items we destroy are not sent to landfill.

It is not advised to sell old IT parts and equipment for use or refurbishment by third parties. In our years of experience within WEEE disposal, the only way to protect your data is to completely destroy your unwanted hardware. The shredded equipment can then be recycled to reduce your environmental impact without fear of your data being compromised.

Shredall SDS Group is one of few WEEE recycling companies that has a target to recycle 100% of non-contaminated waste as part of our ISO 14001 Environmental Management Certification. Our commitment to recycling all electrical waste benefits your business as well - working with us will reduce your own environmental impact, which is something that consumers are increasingly looking for in businesses.

How it works

Get in touch to arrange a date and time for your old equipment to be collected. We can destroy hard drives, servers, memory products, monitors, towers, printers, photocopiers and laptops.

Our fully DBS checked staff will load equipment into our vehicle and give you the appropriate duty-of-care documents (e.g. a hazardous waste consignment note).

We’ll use cutting-edge technology to destroy each product, making it completely impossible to reconstruct and recover the data. Destroyed hard drives are sent to our UK WEEE-approved partner for recycling. Ferrous and non-ferrous metals are removed, then the copper-rich materials, printed circuit boards and plastics are taken away to be recycled. All recycling is carried out in the United Kingdom.

We issue a certificate of destruction for all IT equipment collected and destroyed.

Recycling FAQ's

Below, we’ve answered some of the most common questions that clients ask about our recycling services. If you can’t find the answer you’re looking for here, don’t worry – just get in touch.

How does the recycling process work?

All paper and cardboard that we shred is baled at our recycling depots and sent to an environmentally approved and accredited mill on the United Kingdom, where it's made into tissue products and new packaging material.

We can get through 320 tonnes of waste paper in a day at the Shredall SDS Group premises, and our mobile machines run at an output of 3,000kg per hour. That’s a lot of shredded paper, and recycling it helps to:

●Reduce future rainforest destruction

●Reduce energy consumption from the manufacture of new materials

●Reduce the amount of paper waste going to landfill

●Reduce the emission of harmful gasses, like methane into the atmosphere.

●Reduce future oil usage

●Reduce future electricity usage

Which types of material do you recycle?

As well as paper and cardboard, we also recycle a wide range of electronic waste, which is sent to our WEEE-approved recycling partner.

Yes! Shredall SDS Group is ISO 14001-certified, demonstrating our commitment to continual improvement in environmental best practice and the prevention of pollution.

Our yearly audits for this accreditation also take into account our other work beyond recycling, such as our use of a compliant and well-maintained fleet of transit vehicles.
