As part of our commitment to the environment we have partnered with ECS The Greener Side project to reduce, reuse and recycle the waste produced by printing. The Greener Side provide a fully accredited recycling solution to the fastest growing waste stream – Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment, or WEEE.
Under the Environmental Protection Act 2006 3289 WEEE regulations, the Government has set targets for producers to ensure that waste is disposed of properly. That means businesses have a duty of care to consign their waste to licensed facilities and by partnering with The Greener Side we are passing those benefits onto you, so you are better able to manage your printer waste responsibly.
With fully licensed Waste Management Centres and a zero landfill policy to which it strictly adheres, The Greener Side recovers, treats and recycles consumables including laser and inkjet toner cartridges and drums – meaning 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 being permanently wiped using the latest technology. A Certificate of Erasure is issued once this process is complete.
To add to their credentials, The Greener Side is 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 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:
