Our Process

At SE Recycling we wanted to make disposing of your IT equipment as simple and easy as possible. This is why we have a team of IT disposal & recycling specialists ready to help you with all your IT recycling requirements. Below we have listed the simple steps it takes to sustainably recycle and dispose of your IT and electronic equipment.

Get in Touch

The first step in your IT disposal journey is to get in touch with one of our IT recycling specialists. Our team of IT disposal specialists are at hand to provide you with all necessary information about our IT disposal service and how we ensure your IT and electronics are sustainably recycled. During your contact with a team member we will gather information on what assets you require to be disposed of.

Equipment Assessment

After getting in touch with us, one of our IT recycling specialists will run an assessment of your unwanted IT equipment. During the assessment we determine the best possible solution for disposing of your unwanted and redundant IT equipment and advise you on whether the collection will be free, come with a minor charge or even result in a rebate. Once the assessment is complete for your IT assets we arrange a collection for your devices.


After your equipment has been assessed, a member of our IT recycling specialist team will arrange a collection for your redundant IT equipment. Dependant on  quantity and type of equipment you require collecting we will allocate the most suitable vehicle to ensure you are provided with the most sustainable and efficient service.

Asset Management

During transport to our facility and upon arrival at our secure IT disposal site, we ensure the efficient and secure management of all your redundant IT assets. From the moment we arrive at your site we work with you to ensure every piece of equipment is accounted for and loaded securely onto our own vehicle. From there we can track your assets during transport from your site to ours so that you have the piece of mind that your IT equipment is safe and secure at all times. Once arrived at our site we then make sure all your equipment is accounted for and safely unloaded into our warehouse.

Just Some of the Equipment We Recycle

Computers are one of the most important items of WEEE to recycle properly. Due to their complex internal parts they must be fully assessed before decisions can be made if they are suitable to re-enter the market place. Any items that cannot be 100% certified as fully working will be broken down in to its core components so that no part will go to waste. Any parts not used for refurbishment will be fully recycled.

As with PC’s, any laptops that are in working condition will be fully refurbished and remarketed reducing the amount of waste materials or resources being recycled. All laptops are fully tested to ensure they work as per the original manufacturer’s specification. We have a specialist department exclusively working on laptops to ensure we can provide the best possible service and value to our customers.

Any TFT or PC Monitor we recover goes through rigorous testing to ensure there are no pressure marks, pixel issues or shading. We have specialist software that carries out a number of specific screen tests which enables each item to receive a pass certificate before being re-marketed. Due to their content any items that fail are specially processed to comply with environmental agency standards. Visit our Monitor Recycling and Disposal Page to find out more.

We have a fleet of vehicles that can accommodate all different sizes of server equipment, cabinets and racks. All products are put through our refurbishment process with cabinets being fully washed and cleaned to the highest quality.

With the introduction of GDPR and potential consequences of data breaches, the safe and secure destruction of any information on data bearing devices is more important than ever. Every item we recover will be assessed as to whether it holds any data and where appropriate completely wiped in line with industry standards. Any item that cannot be 100% wiped and certified will be destroyed.

The mobile phone industry has grown dramatically over the last 10 years. In the UK over 92% of the adult population have at least one mobile phone. It is estimated that there are over 75,000,000 mobile phones lying unused in drawers, garages and offcies around the country. We take mobile phone recycling very seriously and have our own mobile phone specialists who conduct rigorous tests and diagnostics. All mobile phones are securely and safely wiped and either refurbished or recycled. Mobiles that are of poor quality are broken down into core materials for smelting and recycling purposes.
