Hi Team

 

We collect around 2 dozen retired items such as printers, desktops, monitors, boxes of cables, etc on a pallet and are used to calling our favourite recyclers who will normally come and collect in a van within a week at no charge to us unless there is a CRT or something like that.  Something has changed with this organisation, and three emails and 4 weeks later, we've still got a pile.

 

Can anyone recommend an organisation that will reliably provide a similar service?  We are in west Auckland, just off Lincoln Road.

 

Cheers
Mike

I'm looking for one that will also destroy Hard Disks and certify they have done it.

 

I'm about to replace about 200 Win7 PCs, and 8 Win 2008 servers, and I don't want to wipe all their hard drives.

 

Don't mind paying, but it needs to be reasonable.

We use http://www.remarkit.co.nz they cover nationwide, and pay you for the stuff that's worth something, so we found the prices very good. Most of our pickups have worked out to be free, or close to it.
