I saw this in one of my LinkedIn feeds this morning:

http://www.techcollect.nz

I really hope these guys manage to stay the course and hang around for a few decades at least, I really struggled to get rid of some HP toner cartridges last year - HP’s “recycling” in NZ was a pretty useless process in the end - but this looks like it could have some legs.

Certainly the problem of old kit and cables isn’t going away 😊

I hope they last too as they have a drop-off point very close to where I live on the North Shore and I really should clear out the garage of old stuff that I've been hanging on to "just in case I have a need for it".

Good idea.

 

i'm actually looking for a service that collects stuff from a location - I have a heap of old laptops, and next year could have about 300 desktops that will need recycling.

 

Also need to find someone who shreds or physically destroys hard drives - anyone know of someone?

Payam in Auckland will take old hard drives for parts.

 

They will securely wipe them and provide certs as proof of this for free.

Our company is security conscious and uses a metal recycler who has a shredding machine. Our disposals guy throws the hdd into the shredder and watches them get munched up into little pieces.

Dont assume recycling is clean & green. Its not , recycling can be a dirty process
When it gets sent overseas, to some 3rd world country......burnt to get at the copper .
