Our Ethics

Aside reuse through resale our recovery and disposal options for surplus telecom equipment reduce energy consumption, carbon-emissions and the use of landfill. All activities are underpinned by the European WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Directive and other local government legislation (The Environmental Protection Act 1990).

We operate as an Authorised Treatment Facility (ATF) licensed by the Environment Agency. Recycling operations are specifically designed for the disposal of surplus obsolete telecommunications equipment from fixed line and wireless networks as well as the historic sunken copper cable infrastructure. Up to 96% of metal content is reclaimed and cables are 99% recycled.

Our waste carrier licence illustrates that we are trusted to handle controlled waste under the Control of Pollution. The BSI ISO 9001 Quality Management and ISO 14001 Environmental Management standards reflect the quality of our recycling process and are supported by a full audit trail from collection to disposal. We are currently working towards BSI 45001 in 2018.

We aim to deliver value through

  • Providing lifecycle management services across all areas of a telecoms network.
  • Maximizing investment recovery from surplus hardware and copper cable infrastructure.
  • Reducing operating expenses, energy consumption and emissions within installed legacy networks.
  • Ensuring corporate brand protection and supporting wider CSR policies.
  • Delivering client visibility across fully audited, compliant, safe, and responsible processes.
  • Providing expert technical services to support deployment and recovery projects on a full or jointly managed outsourced basis.
