Case Studies

Wholesale Snack Food Distributor

Bobby’s Foods delivers its products throughout England, Scotland and Wales.  Over 18,000 retailers stock Bobby’s snacks including a wide variety of Crisps, Nuts, Sweets and Cakes.  The retailers are served by a national network of strategically located depots, each with their own fleet of sales vans enabling twice monthly visits to each and every retailer.

After a comprehensive overhaul of their van sales IT systems, Environmental Computer Recycling collected over 70 dot matrix vehicle printers which had become surplus to requirements after the upgrade.

These printers have now been refurbished for re-use in the 2nd user market place at an affordable cost to the consumer.  Refurbishing these printers for re-use has avoided over 350kg of IT related equipment ending up as landfill.

Bobby’s Foods were more than happy with the comprehensive IT Recycling service they received.  Friendly, fast and efficient, Bobby’s could not be happier with Environmental Computer Recycling, safe in the knowledge that with their help further WEEE landfill issues can be avoided.


The NGA is the only independent body representing school governors in England. There are over 300,000 governors, which is the largest volunteer group in the UK.

They are an independent charity that aims to improve the well-being of children and young people by promoting high standards in all our schools, and improving the effectiveness of their governing bodies.

The association supports both local authority maintained schools, and academies.

Environmental Computer Recycling were contacted by the NGA to collect a number of IT related products, and also to data destroy some of their computer hard drives.

The service included full certification which was processed within a short period of time following the collection of the items.

Venue Management

nec group logo

The NEC Group is a British company that owns and operates four venues in Birmingham: The National Exhibition Centre, from which it gets its name, but also The International Convention Centre, the LG Arena (based on The NEC site) and The National Indoor Arena. The company also operates Amadeus - an external catering division, which provides services to prestigious events such as the Loch Lomond golf tournament.

We operate a continuous refresh of our IT equipment over a three year cycle and Environmental Computer Recycling have collected 100s of PCs for recycling or refurbishing.

Many computer monitors and printers have been collected and disposed of in accordance to WEEE regulations thus avoiding landfill.

Environmental Computer Recycling have therefore helped the NEC Group achieve its goal of “NIL TO LANDFILL”.


IGS - Specsavers logo

I.G.S. is part of the manufacturing chain of Specsavers opticians.

We produce upwards of 20,000 pairs of spectacles per week which we deliver to Specsavers stores daily. Our process is heavily dependent on technology and this is regularly refreshed to keep Specsavers at the top of the industry.

Environmental Computer Recycling provided a fast efficient disposal service allowing I.G.S. to upgrade our technology effectively and safely with the security of certificates for hard drive destruction giving us peace of mind. We at Specsavers are always looking to improve our ability to safely dispose of our waste and recycle as much as possible. Environmental Computer Recycling gave us the options we needed to fulfil our goals.


Refurbished Pcs & Laptops


"I contacted Environmental Computer Recycling regarding the destruction of some hard drives which needed to be disposed off correctly. Environmental Computer Recycling gave me a very good quote, and were very efficient in collecting the hard drives. After destruction was completed, I was issued with a certificate which recorded all the serial numbers of the hard drives that were destroyed so I could cross reference them to the list I had made before. They were very professional and the service was affordable. I would have no hesitation in using them again in the future."
Mr Permjit Minhas, Healthcare Organisation (NHS)

"I contacted Environmental Computer Recycling regarding the sale of a large quantity of HP Servers and Switches following a recent refresh of IT kit. I was delighted with the quotation I received, and also very happy with their speed in processing the payment for the goods. They even removed all of our old and unwanted WEEE from our store room free of charge.Great Service All Round!! Highly recommend, and I will be using again after our Telecoms refresh!!"
Mr S Thompson Network Manager - Council.

“BVSC was happy to use Environmental Computer Recycling and Removals as the company fits within our aim to try and recycle as much waste as possible. The service was affordable and efficient and we would have no hesitation in using them again.”
Resource Centre manager, BVSC, the centre for voluntary action.

“We were first introduced to Environmental Computer Recycling a year ago and we have never looked backed. Their services make our visions for CSR a reality, particularly when it comes to the recycling and re-use of unusual items. The friendly and helpful staff make them a pleasure to deal with and I would have no reservation about recommending Environmental Computer Recycling as your partner of choice in your CSR initiatives."
