Delivering a sustainable future through a comprehensive, integrated approach to IT recycling services.
Sustainability is under the spotlight more than ever before for organisations across both public and private sectors.
As climate change becomes an increasingly important global issue, businesses and public bodies are expected to reduce emissions, cut energy use, maximise recycling and minimise waste as much as they can. Even in areas where they may not be required to do so by law, there is a heavy moral and social expectation to do so.
So that organisations can meet these expectations efficiently and cost-effectively, SCC has developed Recyclea. This suite of recycling services is based on the wealth of knowledge and expertise we possess in business and public-sector IT. Run from our highly-accredited UK Operations Centre in Birmingham, Recyclea is designed to help you optimise asset value and lifespan, take steps towards becoming a more sustainable or even net zero business, and meet compliance needs around data security and CSR.
How does SCC Recyclea Work?
Recyclea consists of three core services: recycling, refurbishment and remarketing, all with a focus of securely maximising the output from customer IT equipment. Alongside these are a number of associated services which help maximise the security and sustainability of IT recycling, as well as contributing to the circular economy. All our services are extensively accredited, according to stringent Government, National Cyber Security Centre, and Ministry of Defence criteria, among others.
