We are committed to managing all aspects of our business in a responsible and ethical manner. This is underlined by our company ethos of Principle before Profit. Our partnership with ECS The Greener Side is a key part of our commitment to the environment.
We have partnered with ECS The Greener Side to reduce, reuse and recycle the waste produced by printing. In short, this organisation provides a fully accredited recycling solution for the fastest growing waste stream, Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE).
The Environmental Protection Act 2006 3289 WEEE regulations sets targets for producers to ensure waste is properly disposed of. Therefore businesses have a duty of care to consign their waste to licensed facilities. As a result of partnering with ECS The Greener Side we are passing these benefits onto you. So you are better able to manage your printer waste responsibly.
ECS The Greener Side operate fully licensed Waste Management Centres and strictly adhere to a zero-landfill policy. They recover, treat and recycle printer consumables such as toner cartridges and drums. This means that they won’t get sent to landfill. And that in turn significantly reduces environmental impact.
Photocopiers, printers and scanners are also recycled, with sensitive data permanently wiped using the latest technology. In addition, a Certificate of Erasure is issued once this has been done.
In addition, ECS The Greener Side are part of the Microsoft Registered Refurbisher Scheme and members of the Chartered Institution of Wastes management.
This successful partnership ensures that we are doing all we can to improve the environment, comply with WEEE directives and pass those benefits on to you, our clients.
We are proud to be an authorised dealer, partner and reseller for all the major printer and other hardware brands. Their commitment to the environment is explained here:
