How to get rid of your computer the green way


Geeks-on-wheels offers IT support to the general public and small businesses.

In addition to a fantastic business name, Geeks-on-wheels has an ethical heart, too. Whenever the Geeks supply a new computer, monitor or printer, they offer to take customers old equipment, free of charge, and make sure it is disposed of according to the EU's Directive on Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE).

Old computers are broken down to their raw materials, such as plastic, glass and precious metals. These then go on to form parts of cars, mobile phones and even underground construction piping.

So, next time your computer blows up, who you gonna call? (Sorry).

More recycling.
