ecosurety and SHP Ltd help members Clear-IT! with new door-to-door WEEE collection

Clear-IT! collects redundant mobile phones, laptops and PCs from premises and has the backing of Lord Digby Jones, chairman of SHP Ltd.

ecosurety members who want to dispose of unwanted IT equipment in the New Year now have the option of secure collections from their doorstep, following an agreement between the leading resource efficiency specialist and UK electronics recycling company SHP Ltd.

The initiative, known as Clear-IT!, and which has the backing of Lord Digby Jones, recovers and recycles computer, mobile phones, laptops, PCs and other items designated under the European Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive.

SHP LtdSHP Ltd, which is chaired by Lord Jones, will arrange collection, process the waste and securely destroy data. Should the intrinsic value remain positive, ecosurety’s 1, 000 members across the UK could potentially receive a rebate, once charges are removed.

ecosurtey members range predominantly across manufacturing, imports, technology, retail and food and drink sectors. The joint initiative was agreed following checks on SHP Ltd’s data systems, reporting and CSR programmes.

A compelling service

James Piper commercial directorJames Piper, Commercial Director at ecosurety (pictured left) explains, “ecosurety has always been extremely keen to promote collections of redundant IT equipment, but there has been always the potential barrier of how best to ensure data security, an increasingly important consideration for companies that rely on business information systems for their competitive edge, not to mention the very real danger of corporate data falling into the wrong hands.

“Following discussions, we are more than satisfied SHP Ltd has the right processes in place to offer members a compelling service, with peace of mind that all necessary steps have been taken for the secure and efficient re-use of their IT equipment.”

ecosurety will promote the collection, recycling and reuse of members’ redundant IT and telephonic equipment through SHP Ltd and work with them to ensure provision of  evidence of re-use and recycling as required by the UK WEEE Regulations.
