SCC, the pan-European technology integrator and services provider, has invested £5 million in sourcing technology and services to help companies to turn the necessity of being compliant with recent IT equipment legislation such as WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) into a real opportunity. Customers can benefit from an extended, cost-efficient, hassle-free ‘green IT’ strategy, which protects them from further financial burdens.
SCC’s recycling facility NeoPark has been updated with the latest shredding and separation technology. In line with the Government’s WEEE directive, this technology will, in one process, reduce IT to its basic components and cut the amount of waste going to landfill to zero per cent. Unique to the industry, NeoPark offers an integrated recycling facility, which provides a full range of refurbishment, remarketing, disposal and reverse logistics services in a clean and secure environment.
The Authorised Treatment Facility (AATF) application pending will endorse SCC’s ability to process large amounts of legacy IT equipment; in 2006, the company processed over 250,000 items and 2007 is set to at least double this as the legislation goes live on July 1, 2007.
“While delivering a significant compliance burden, the WEEE directive also provides companies with the opportunity to optimise the way they deal with redundant IT and electronic equipment,” said Jon Sansom, Service Delivery Director at SCC. “Our company has a long and viable track record in shaping future-proof, green IT strategies.”
