The main principals of environmental management are:
Reduce and reuse go together in our computer industry. By prolonging the lives of the equipment by reuse we are reducing the immense amounts of energy required to convert raw materials into the metals, glass and plastics that make up individual components and the materials themselves required to make a new unit.
But in our business we do occasionally receive CRTs and base units that are beyond economic repair. In these circumstances Excel Data Systems can confirm that these are sent for recycling to a company licensed by the Environment Agency.
Certificates of recycling are available on request to demonstrate our commitment, and hence your commitment, to reuse and recycle your computers. Should you have any questions regarding our Environmental Policy please do not hesitate to contact us.
