SITR specialise in the secure collection and disposal of superfluous or outmoded I.T. equipment. We operate a nationwide collection service and we are licensed by the Environment Agency.

As we hold this license, we are permitted to collect, transport and recycle such equipment.
The Government’s WEEE directive, and subsequent legislation, not only governs the collection and transportation, but also, and perhaps more importantly, the method of disposal of this electrical and electronic waste. It goes without saying that SITR, adheres absolutely to every section of the WEEE directive, and guarantees total security for its clients.
The level of service afforded by every client of SITR is paramount in our quest for perfection. This industry demands it!
