The most obvious answer to that question is that more recycling is good for the environment, and that means that we and our partner schools are all doing our bit in removing unwanted computer equipment from schools and disposing of it in an environmentally friendly manner.
But there are other implications too. For PRM Green Technologies it has meant moving into a new purpose-designed recycling centre.
And that is also good news, because it means that more and more schools are putting out their unwanted equipment for recycling. It doesn’t cost the school anything, and it gives a good lead to parents and the students when they see what the school is achieving.
As for the new recycling premises, it means we have been able to be involved in the design of the new centre.
Given that the new premises are (at 16,500 square feet) considerably larger than our old work environment, it means we have been able to expand our daily collection services from schools without fear of overloading the recycling work.
And, although no one has ever broken into our premises to rummage among the equipment waiting to be recycled, we thought it not a bad idea to up the level of security on the site, just in case.
So we have put in high security gates and fencing, plus 24 hour CCTV and alarm systems throughout. As we said already, no one has tried to break into recycling areas, but we’ve also increased our vetting procedures. Again, just in case.
All this means there is even less danger of our service being interrupted than there was before. We continue to offer a 100% free service to schools across the UK mainland.
So we can continue to provide an excellent and cost-effective method of disposing of old IT and telecommunications equipment in an environmentally-friendly manner, free of charge. If your school has not used us before, there is no question about whether we will have the capacity to take on your unwanted IT equipment.
The answer is, yes we can. We have the space.
