Pure Planet Recycling are specialist in waste and electronic recycling under the waste electrical and electronics directive or WEEE as it is known.

Based in Bedfordshire our company was formed in 2007 collecting redundant equipment across the UK to recycle and recover the raw materials which can then be used for reprocessing. We also supply compliant WEEE storage containers

 

I would love for you to meet our EDD   :-)

if we do not live in your area how can we take a computer apart and send the hard drive through the post perhaps?

Phil you really should find someone who can bring EDD eco drive destroyer alive as a character .. I mean make cartoons or an e-book  anything like that. You could run a competition  "wheres EDD" and hide him in different parts of a site leaving clues like a sort of treasure trail.  Talking of treasure trails Phil you could run one in your local area to find EDD with a prize of a small laptop perhaps for someone. I bet you could get a few hundred locals on the trail if you planned it really well and made sure you advertised it well.

Sally that is a briliant idea. Edd would be a fabulous character and a great way to spread the word about him

Great idea sally and thanks for the advice, we would need to be very careful on the pitch of the character as the majority of our customers are business users. But definitely a vlaid idea for our next meeting at work, thank you.

 

As for people sending in their drives we do currently offer the service, however most users want to witness the destruction, which they can do at our Bedford site. Within seconds their drive is in half, then we can recycle to get the raw materials from the drive reused in remanufacturing.

Yes he really does look like a little robot fella so why give him a  nice smiling face and why not get him out on school trips and give a card to every child to give to their mum and dads letting them know that they should be careful about how they dispose of their computers.

What a good idea! What happens to the hard drives after they have been crushed? I am sure they are much more manageable but don't they still take up the same space? It would be interesting to know.
