companies-in-the-ukThe quote below is taken from www.itpro.co.uk and it shows that so many companies are still not taking IT Recycling seriously, to avoid fines contact us at www.sitr.com and dispose of your IT in accordance with the UK and European regulations.

“Survey reveals concerns over confidential data falling into the wrong hands are putting firms off recycling.

Around 95 per cent of computers owned by UK business end up in landfill, according to a survey.

Recycling company BusinessWaste.co.uk said nearly all firms still send electronic waste to landfill rather than make arrangements for it to be collected, reused or recycled.

The firm surveyed 500 customers and prospects, and only five per cent said they had plans in place to responsibly dispose of electronic waste.

It said many businesses are unaware of UK and Europe-wide regulations regarding the disposal of electrical and electronic equipment”.

Environmental Protection Act 1990

environmentAgencyThe Environmental Protection Act establishes the ‘duty of care’ in relation to the handling of all waste, including IT waste.

This legislative measure lays down that the person or persons responsible for waste arising from a business must ensure that disposal takes place in an environmentally sound and ethical manner.

Typically this includes ensuring that waste equipment is passed only to an Authorised Waste Carrier and handled only by Authorised Waste Management facilities.

Both individuals and company representatives can face serious legal consequences should they ignore this obligation.

At www.sitr.com we can help you meet your obligations head on!
