We understand the importance of minimising our impact on the environment and are proud to have achieved ISO 14001. The volumes of handsets and equipment that we deal with each day highlight the need to manage the disposal of these items with care. At every stage we work to ensure that we are doing all that we can to offset the potential impact.
We take the basic set standards for dealing with electrical waste, set out in the WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Directives as our minimum and work up from there – aiming to surpass the standards that are required of us by law.
We have a zero landfill policy for mobile phones and for all non-hazardous electrical waste. Unfortunately about 7% of all electrical waste is hazardous and has to be disposed of via secure landfill sites. If that changes we will gratefully adjust our policies to match.
We support CSR (corporate social responsibility) campaigns, collecting phones and equipment on your charity’s behalf so that they can be turned into donations or sent out to deserving people around the globe.
