Helping Support Businesses During the Pandemic

SE Recycling has set up the North West Sustainable Recycling Initiative in a bid to provide businesses affected by the pandemic economic and environmental support.

Since the UK went into lockdown at the end of March the amount of waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) that is recycled dropped by over 50%. In a bid to combat this and help businesses financially, SE Recycling (SER) has decided to offer businesses and organisations their recycling and data destruction services free of charge.

Manchester based IT recycling company SE Recycling have set up the ‘North West Sustainable Recycling Initiative’ with the aim of removing the financial stress that comes with the disposal of WEEE and instead reward those for their recycling efforts. SE Recycling will collect, data erase and recycle the organisation’s IT equipment free of charge and provide a rebate for the equipment collected.

SE Recycling’s Managing Director, Gary Mo, said “The IT Recycling initiative was set up in a bid to help improve both the environment and economy. Recycling can be a great way of creating sustainable funding streams, which during this climate, can be crucial for many businesses and organisations.”

Several businesses during the pandemic have been able to use SER’s recycling initiative and have even chosen to donate the funds they have raised to charity.

In recognition of their efforts to build a stronger economy and greener environment, SER has now become a partner of Northern Powerhouse. The Northern Powerhouse is the government’s vision for a super-connected, globally-competitive northern economy with a flourishing private sector, a highly-skilled population, and world-renowned civic and business leadership.
