About the Company
Tech-Takeback is a not-for-profit company on a mission to change the way the UK thinks about electrical waste. We collect a wide range of electricals from peoples’ doorsteps; from old laptops and tablets to sat navs and toasters. And we give them a second life – even the ones that are broken!
We securely data-wipe all items using our certificated data-erasure process. Then, we repair or refurbish anything we can, for redistribution to the most vulnerable groups in our community. Anything we can’t repurpose is sent to our recycling partners, who extract raw materials for reuse in manufacture. So far, our unique approach has:
· Diverted 28 tonnes of electricals from landfill
· Saved 1,185 tonnes of CO2e through reuse and recycling
· Redistributed 4,000 items to local charities
We have big ambitions for 2022, including opening a high-street shop. We also hope to increase our impact by working with local charities to offer training in product repairs to unemployed, homeless or disabled people.
