Recycle your old IT equipment!

Posted on 24th November 2017 by Lauren Parry

Do you have a drawer full of old mobile phones? Or do you have old laptops, computer parts or other electronic gadgets that are gathering dust at home? The Edinburgh Remarkery refurbish old IT equipment so that it doesn’t end up in landfill.

We’re setting up a collection point for the Remakery in our High Street Hub this January. Just bring items down to our High Street Hub any Wednesday to Saturday, 10am – 4pm in January. We’ll pass the items across for the Remakery to recycle at the end of the month.

Here’s a list of items they accept (items can be working or broken):

  • Laptops of any age
  • Desktop computers younger than 6 years (Core2Duo and over)
  • Servers (regardless of age)
  • Computer parts (Ram, HDD, graphics cards, CPUs etc.)
  • Monitors over 21 inches
  • Tablets
  • Smartphones / Cellphones
  • Handheld consoles
  • Electronic gadgets (ipods, apple tvs, smartwatches etc.)
  • Power Leads (clover leaf and kettle leads)
  • Unopened/Unused toner cartridges
