Specialist Recycling Services
Looking for WEEE disposal and the best electronics recycling service? Look no further than our WEEE recycling service.
Whether it's computer recycling, laptop recycling, a fridge collection, or something else, we'll make sure the right bits go to the right places with our next-day e-waste recycling service.
Although nearly 100% of e-waste is recyclable, around 50 million tonnes is thrown away each year worldwide.
Do I need to recycle electronics?
Recycling waste electric and electronic equipment is more important than ever and to help, First Mile provides electronic waste recycling across the UK.
Technology is developing at an exponential rate with increased use of planned obsolescence, meaning today’s commercial and office electronics will fast become yesterday’s WEEE waste. This technology is packed with chemicals that are nasty in the wrong places, but great in the right ones. First Mile makes sure the right bits go to the right places.
With so many hazardous materials in our electrical equipment, stuffing our old devices into landfills is bound to have a significant negative effect on the environment. If WEEE is just dumped in landfills, its toxic components leak into the earth and our water systems. This means toxins enter our food chain — and, ultimately, us.
That’s why we now have laws that enforce WEEE recycling. We throw out the equivalent of 1000 laptops every single second, but laptop recycling won't happen unless it is recycled through a WEEE recycling service.
Do you offer electrical recycling near me?
We offer electronic recycling throughout the UK using our convenient commercial bins. From old mobile phone recycling to large electronic waste disposal collections, we can help.
Does this include computer recycling?
Yes. Whether it's laptop recycling, computer recycling or any other WEEE waste, we ensure all devices are fully wiped clean of data before viable equipment is refurbished and the parts that can't be reused are shredded to be recycled into new products.
With us, electrical and computer recycling has never been easier, nor more eco-friendly.
