Recovering, re-use or recycling Electronics and IT
Not only does re-use maximise revenue opportunity but it is also significantly better for the environment. Legislation is leaning towards encouraging re-use rather than re-cycle but as the first focus of Concept Management is data security it is a trade-off between ensuring data is securely sanitised and making processing of the asset financial viable for re-use. Concept Management encourages best commercial practise in functionality testing, repair and re-engineers but also consider commercial viability of these practices. Concept Management provide a return for end of life equipment.
During the auditing process a decision tree is in place which allows an incomplete or non-functioning asset to undergo some remedial process / repair to make it good for re-use or recycle
This decision tree has a written process which shows time verses financial viability of repair. Records of all assets either sold on or passed for further processing are kept. These records include unique tracking references of all equipment passed onto downstream suppliers.
Items which can be damaged by ESD are handled in ESD safe working environments. Proactive assessments, audits and management of downstream brokerage and recycling partners are completed annually.
Concept provides numerous solutions and customised service programmes depending on your needs and the age of the electronic equipment you wish to recover the value from.
- Redundant stock sorting, asset recovery and liquidation
- Recovery of assets from manufactured products and sub-assemblies
- Materials recovery
- Recovery of re-usable components
- Precious metal recovery, seperation and refinery
- Re-deployable computer parts
- Recovery of processing modules and memory components
Maximum Value Recovery
In addition to offering the best end of life solution in the electronics recycling industry, we maintain a team of expert technicians that maximise the value recovered from the IT assets we procure. We believe that, whenever possible, recovery is the best environmental solution for electronic equipment that contains reusable components.
The first step in our process is to test equipment to determine if it can be reused. If so, we make sure that any data containing components is sanitised and all information is removed. In this way, we can return profits to our customers while assuring them of the security of their proprietary information. They also receive certification that their equipment has been properly recycled and their data has been destroyed.
Concept has developed systems to recover the valuable resources in electronics and recycle them into new products. Electronics contain gold, silver, copper and other precious metals that are in finite supply, along with plastic, glass and other metals. We conserve these limited natural resources by using the latest technology to extract these materials from the end-of-life electronics that we process.
