PC/Laptop recycling scheme

We’re so pleased to be able to make a difference to the local community with our PC/laptop recycling scheme. Our MD, Nick Marsden, met James Lawrence at Coventry Citizens Advice in December 2022 to handover some much needed IT equipment.

Our recycling scheme has been in place for a few years now, providing local schools and charities with much needed IT equipment, such as laptops, monitors and printers.

We’re incredibly grateful to all our customers who have contributed to the scheme by donating their old equipment to us. Of course, all data is safely removed by our engineers before sending the equipment on to its new owners.

Coventry Citizens Advice welcomed the donations of laptops and desktop computers, which will be used by staff to offer advice to people in debt who are being “trapped” by the escalating cost of living crisis.

Coventry Citizens Advice Client Services Director, James Lawrence, said:

“This is a fantastically generous donation from an organisation which has consistently supported Coventry Citizens Advice.

We have faced a significant upturn since the start of the new year in people coming to us with complex debt issues.

This donation will directly aid staff working with some of the most vulnerable Coventry people as they choose between eating or heating their homes and trying to pay their rent.

It will have a hugely positive impact on the mental health and wellbeing of these clients.

Coventry residents feeling worried about their finances can always turn to the Citizens Advice network for help. Our advice is free, impartial, independent and confidential and can deliver real results. We never charge people for advice and we don’t judge – we just help.”

It’s fantastic to hear what a difference this simple act will make to Citizens Advice and the local community, and we’re delighted to be involved.

As a business, we are committed to improving our Corporate Social Responsibility efforts so, as well as the positive impact this scheme has on the community, we’re also pleased to be able to do our bit for the environment.
