Redundant IT Recycling | Computer Recycling | Community Recycling Consortium

 

We are very proud to have forged a wonderful partnership with Fisher German, whose head office is based in  Ashbey de la Zouch with further offices around the UK.  As you can read on pp22-23 of their magazine, major changes are being introduced to recycle IT equipment by phasing out PCs and re-using laptops as training machines before finally being donated to us for ethical recycling which supports our aim of training and employing vulnerable people with mental health issues.  Fisher German magazine issue 22 Summer 2019 

Successful growth has led to the acquisition of two extra vans, now providing a fleet of 4 vehicles of varying sizes  to suit requested collections.  We have increased our unit size to 5,000 sq. ft (from 2,500 sq.ft.) and have also expanded our workforce to 14 paid employees, with a team of 20 volunteers working variable hours to suit their needs.

In more than six years of business, we have offered work experience and apprenticeships to 91 local people that experience various forms/degrees of mental health.

With support and guidance, 81 of these have moved on to adult education or sustainable employment. That is a remarkable 89% success rate of which we are extremely proud.  Some have embraced the confidence and skills that we have nurtured and gone on to start up their own small businesses – a great achievement for those who would not even speak when first joining us!

One of our most recent successes is Adam Nixon, our driver who can be seen on the Guardian video.  He  has been with us for nearly four years and speaks openly about his mental health issues and “fitting in” with society.  We are delighted that he has developed the confidence to make himself  known as a budding author and wish him the best with all further writing.                                  His novel,   Inherent Strain, by  A M Nixon,  is available as paperback or Kindle edition at                         https://www.amazon.co.uk/Inherent-Strain-Adam-Nixon-ebook/dp/B077CB1WHY/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1534676103&sr=8-1&keywords=inherent+strain

As part of its community focus CRC collects, dismantles and recycles redundant computers, laptops, tablets, ipads, servers and other electronic goods from schools, colleges and businesses across Staffordshire, Cheshire, Derbyshire, Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin, Leicestershire, Nottinghamshire and the West Midlands. We are also, increasingly, travelling into Yorkshire, down to London and the South Coast and parts of Wales.

  • “I would like to take the time to thank all the team at CRC – what an amazing service! The booking process was simple and the turnaround was frighteningly quick. When the collection team arrived on site, they were the epitome of professionalism; very thorough, good humoured and worked like Trojans. The after-care was equally superb, with certificates and logs all arriving quickly. They even managed to find a few serial numbers I had missed!
    They are an outstanding company to work with, and I have no hesitation in giving them my highest personal recommendation.”

    Mike Burns, Head of Planning & Operation, Stoke on Trent Sixth form College

  • “Data Driven is a software company based in Stoke on Trent.
    As a business we have just attained the ISO14001 environmental and ISO27001 information security standards.
    As part of both of these standards, recycling of redundant IT equipment in a secure, legal, environmentally ethical and friendly way is a must.
    We chose CRC as they are a local company that met all the legal criteria, employ staff who may have a disability, recycle all items 100% and the service is free, it doesn’t get more environmentally friendly and ethical than that!
    The service supplied by Steve and the team at CRC was fantastic.
    As a new customer, I received a call within minutes of my inquiry, a date was booked and the guys came and collected everything as promised along with all legally required documentation such as waste transfer notes etc. being provided.
    An exceptional, prompt and professional service which I cannot recommend highly enough.”

    Dave Holstead Process improvement manager. Data Driven Logistics
  • “Great, efficient service, always completed with a smile and a bit of banter thrown in, happy to endorse these guys as the service is provided legally and ethically which for us is the main benefit”

    Eaton Park Academy
  • “Our school has used CRC on a number of occasions for the disposal of a range of IT equipment. The service has been extremely friendly and efficient, with certification to confirm proof that hard-drives etc have been deleted, which is very reassuring. I would recommend the service to other schools without reservation.”

  • “We got to use your company eventually. I know it’s taken a while for us to sort this. I must say that our Facilities Manager Tony Stubbs was impressed with the 2 men who came to collect from us. They were polite, and very hard working. Please pass on my comments to them.”

SWIPE TO READ ABOUT MORE SATISFIED CLIENTS

  Many of our service users inform their staff of our arrival date so that they can also raid their cupboards,drawers, lofts and garages at home.
If they require separate certification, they must apply a sticker with their details.

         Following collections, we provide a disposal log with serial numbers of all items disposed of.

When HDDs have been removed and disposed of, certification is issued with serial numbers and dates of HDD disposal.

*Opening and taking apart HDDs  expose the platters to normal air , which contaminate the drive, and render it useless*
