Sustainability is no longer an option, it is an essential element of every corporate strategy. Here at EOL our ethos of ‘Reduce. Reuse. Recycle’ remains central to all that we do.
As the UK’s most accredited ITAD, EOL remains focussed on enhancing our resources, capabilities and compliance in line with the evolving needs of our clients’ and changing legislative requirements
We work tirelessly to ensure not only your data security but to ensure minimum impact on the Environment, using our experience, internal audits, and ISO 14001 Environmental Standard to maintain awareness amongst our team and monitor for any potential risks.
Environmentally Focussed IT Asset Disposal
Choosing EOL as your ITAD partner ensures an environmentally focused approach to your disposal requirements – we want to ensure we are all part of the solution and continue to champion a policy of “reuse not recycling, dispersal not destruction”.
Let’s work together to ensure we shape a future that works for all, in a circular economy.
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. Trusted environment approved downstream partners, are then used to refine raw materials, and used within the supply chain for manufacturing plastic items or refined for their different metals.
EOL 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. EOL are a registered Waste Carrier, hold a Waste Management Licence and are an AATF (Approved Authorised Treatment Facility), registered with the Environment Agency.
EOL endeavour to adhere, wherever possible, to a zero landfill policy and ensure we deal with all IT Asset Disposal in the most environmentally friendly way. We promote the re-use of all equipment and work closely with our Clients to improve awareness of environmentally favourable options, reducing their own impact on the environment.
We work with specific downstream partners for the responsible disposal of specific products that are beyond economical repair and expect all suppliers/vendors to be aware of their own processes and effect it could have on the environment.
We have a strong Environmental Policy, ensuring compliance with all current relevant environmental legislation, including the WEEE directive, and work in partnership with staff and clients to help raise awareness of environmental issues and to make continuing improvements to our operations, always focusing on reducing both our own Carbon Footprint and that of our Clients.
As an environmentally focused ITAD, we actively pursue continual improvement in our environmental performance. On an annual basis we audit our supply chain to ensure adherence to our values and the wider environmental framework, for some this involves physical audit of the supplier premises.
Examples of Energy Efficiency Measures include:
Use of LED low energy lighting where possible and lights on timers and motion sensors,
Use of pool cars which can be maintained and serviced;
Recycling of all office waste;
Reduced water usage, using filtered water machines and low energy water heaters which are serviced regularly
Duplex black & white printing managed for all users by default
Increasing the use of teleconference software (Skype for Business and Microsoft Teams) to reduce business travel

Use of water-based cleaning products that are labelled zero VOC
