There are approximately 1000 IT disposal organisations throughout the UK, most of which were established after the WEEE regulations came into law in 2007.

It is often easy to identify if an organisation is undertaking a consistently high quality compliant service. By asking each question one by one, you can easily filter out all the low quality IT recycling organisations.
