A contact of mine in the UK recieved this flyer through the door a couple of days ago. He typed it in to his pc, tried to preserve the original spelling. I'm trying to get either a scan or a digital pic of it.

What is the world coming to...?!?

Had this put through the door. I've tried to leave the spelling as it was on the flier, but I may have accidentally corrected a few bits without realising.

It sounds like a scam. It really looks like a company wanting to collect old stuff to recycle themselves or to sell - for a profit (in for nothing, out for a buck).

It doesn't sound official at all...

In case it wasn't blindingly obvious, this was about the spelling... :)

good on them for recycling enything
the metal in some of the old proliant servers is good quality steel, a shame to dump it really.
