Computers and Parts
Computers generally get stripped with every component getting sorted and graded. Sought after, or newer systems and parts get refurbished for sale in our shop or used to build up systems for Community Groups or Charities.
Printers, Scanners & Photocopiers.
Small Printers, Photocopiers and some scanners but not all, get shredded and sorted by another Christchurch recycler. The majority of toners we are not able to recycle, however printer cartridges are separately recycled. It would be appreciated if you could remove the cartridges from printers and put in a bag separate for us to recycle, and please remove toner, and dispose of, as we can not recycle this.
Monitors – WE DO NOT TAKE CRT MONITORS OR CRT TVs. THEY ARE THE BULKY ONES.
We do however take TVs, as in the Plasma, LCD, and LED TVs, with flat screens. LCD monitors are tested and any working are put through to our shop for sale. Others are either stripped for parts and recycled, just like the TVs.
We take routers, switches and modems, and most any networking equipment
If saleable they go in our shop, otherwise they are either stripped and sorted or sent off for shredding.
We take all sorts of electronic cables.
With a few exceptions such as whiteware and other large electrical items, we recycle a manner of electronic equipment from household appliances to commercial machinery to laboratory equipment. If you are unsure about the items you wish to recycle give us a call or email and we can see if we can help.
We have a large range of refurbished spare parts for many common computers and laptops, power supplies, memory, motherboards, monitors. Just ask or call into the recycle shop. We sell other various electronic items, and plugs etc. Just give us a call or email, and we’ll try our best to see if we may have what you’re looking for.
We also fix laptops and desktop computers at a lower price than most places in the city.
Hard drive sanitisation
With more of our information is stored electronically, the need to dispose of this data when the life of the computer is at an end has become of more of a concern.
We currently use for all disk we plan to reuse are wiped with a three pass overwrite with 10% disk verification. For businesses and individuals that require certified destruction we currently do a three pass overwrite with a 100% disk verification. There is a $15 fee per hard drive for this service.
