99.3% of all private UK businesses fall under the SME category which makes this sector the largest contributor to computer waste disposed and recycled. Just because the responsibility is spread thinly over 5.4 million businesses doesn’t release the responsibility which legislation imposes.
When it comes to disposing of old IT hardware and data sanitization, businesses of all sizes have responsibilities under the WEEE, data protection act and environmental act legislation etc. Usually associated with cutting corners is cost saving but when it comes to this service, Revive IT are providing a cost neutral all in one service without compromise (due to efficient data destruction, segregation, refurbishment and recycling procedures) which gives SMEs no excuses when it comes to compliance.
The consequences of non-compliance or and using an incompetent IT recycling company can result in an unwelcome collection of negatives: government fines, bad press, poor reputation and loss of business etc.
