At Restore Technology we are committed to protecting the environment. We offer a ‘zero to landfill’ policy so all the equipment we process is disposed of by resale and reuse or, where this is not possible, by breaking the equipment down into its constituent parts for recycling.
Where the equipment we process contains data, we ensure that all of the data is completely and securely wiped beforehand.
In this way, we protect the environment and ensure that we and our customers comply with all environmental legislation, including the WEEE directive.
Our printer cartridge recycling division pioneered the business of collecting empty cartridges in the UK back in 1992, and since then has saved many millions of cartridges from ending up in landfill across the world, through its various collection partners and subsidiaries.
We also collect used mobile phones alongside our cartridge recovery program. Surveys show that globally some 74% of consumers said they do not think about recycling their phones, despite the fact that around 72% think recycling makes a difference to the environment!
