What happens once we collect your old device?

Your old machine will be sent to a facility operated by our third-party recycling partners, which are registered with the UK Environment Agency and focus on re-use.

Need data erasure?

If you need the data on your devices to be wiped, we offer this as a service for £25+VAT, so please remember to request this when filling out the form below.

If you do not wish to pay this fee, it is your responsibility to remove any personal data from all devices before they are collected.

Your old computer will be sorted, graded, and prepared to either be re-sold or to be broken down into parts.

By separating the materials and breaking them down to their raw forms such as glass or metal, they can be sent back to manufacturers to create new products. Any parts that can’t be reused are recycled responsibly.

How to keep up the eco-friendly work with HardSoft

New IT equipment is a huge source of environmental waste. Each time a new machine is created, more fossil fuels, for instance, oil, coal, and natural gas are used, and more raw materials like lumber, steel, and plastic are sourced via methods such as mining or deforestation. None of this is good for the planet, and as a society, we need to reduce our negative impact on the environment.

Conserving natural resources is vital for the future well-being of our planet. By recycling your old laptop or desktop, you help reduce the strain on the environment, and contribute to a more sustainable society! When you recycle your old Apple MacBook, iMac, Lenovo ThinkPad, Dell XPS, etc. you’re recycling all the materials and components that are used to build these machines. This means there’s less demand to make source more of these materials, and therefore fewer fossil fuels, mining, and raw materials are needed to make new products!

The result of this is that there is a reduction in the harmful damage done to the natural world. The more we recycle, the fewer forests are cut down, the fewer wild animals are harmed, and less pollution fills our air and water.
