One of the key ingredients of tier1’s success is the focus and commitment we place on the environment. tier1 work tirelessly to ensure that we champion a policy of “reuse not recycling, dispersal not destruction”. Our Lifecycle Services ensure the safe, secure, and environmentally friendly disposal of legacy IT Equipment.
Assets received that cannot be resold are stripped for working components and reused where possible. Items that have reached end of life are recycled for circuit boards, power units and separated into different types, ready for refining.
With e-waste estimated to be one of the largest growing waste streams globally, this contributes to reducing excessive consumption of the world’s precious, and ever dwindling, resources – as well as the contribution to climate change, pollution and conflict mining.
tier1 are ISO14001 accredited, meet all EU and UK legislative requirements regarding the recycling of IT equipment including the 1990 Environmental Protection Act and the WEEE Directive. tier1 are a registered Waste Carrier, hold a Waste Management Licence and are an AATF (Approved Authorised Treatment Facility), registered with the Environment Agency.
