The Community Recycling Consortium is based in Stoke on Trent but also covers the neighbouring counties of Staffordshire, Cheshire, Derbyshire and Shropshire.  We will collect and recycle (FREE OF CHARGE) your unwanted computers, monitors, laptops and servers. If you also need to dispose of printers, copiers, scanners mice, keyboards, cables, telephones or other IT equipment, we would take these in addition to the larger items.

 

We now support, and are supported by  IT providers including Entrust (Staffs County Council), Evolve ICT Solutions, Owness Solutions and Redtop IT, all major IT providers for Stoke, Staffordshire and Cheshire schools.  We have also, recently, acquired a contract with Newcastle Borough Council (under-Lyme), who join  Richard Lee Williams and Alex Fryer, ICT Education Desktop Support Officers for Telford & Wrekin Council, in using our IT recycling service.

We also collect from schools and businesses for MGL (Liverpool), Synectic Solutions, Stone Group, Novus Group, Prism Computers, M&M Technologies, D2NA, Davies Group, EPX Technical Services and 15 Digital.

Other businesses that support our worthy cause include our newest recruit: Specsavers, Remploy, Greenhous, Culina, Tesco, B&Q, Wickes,  Capula, Busch, Wedgwood, Portmeirion, Twyfords, Tungate Group, Steelite, M-LEC, Owlett-Jaton, Security Plus, BET365 and Birmingham Airport.

In two years we have progressed from the original 4 directors, all of whom have some form of disability, to a workforce of 15, made up of volunteers, apprentices and paid employees, mostly from Remploy, which closed down some years ago.
