Edinburgh, United Kingdom (PressExposure) September 25, 2009 -- Europe's largest independent technology provider has announced that it will give away 100 free Green IT boxes in the run up to the 2009 National Recycling Awards.
Celebrating its own nomination for the Electrical and Electronic Equipment Recycler of the Year Award, SCC will provide the first 100 UK businesses to apply, via its website ([http://www.scc.com/greenitbox]), with a free pallet-sized Green IT box, which allows organisations to dispose of their redundant IT stock quickly, simply and in full compliance with current British & European regulations. Billed as being the most efficient high-tech environmental solution on the market today, 90% of all materials, components and packaging placed in the box are recycled, producing zero landfill.
"As part of our ongoing commitment to environmental responsibility, we're delighted to offer organisations across the UK the chance to join the recycling revolution. Once we've delivered their Green IT Box, businesses simply need to fill them with old and unwanted technology and we'll do the rest - taking care of the entire process from collection to certification," said Jon Sansom, director of SCC's purpose-built recycling facility.
"The Green IT box system has been designed to take the pressure off companies that wish to remain committed to corporate environmental responsibility, but have limited time and resources to work through the various compliance issues. Put simply, we believe it's the most cost-effective and straight-forward recycling option on the market today."
Normally retailing at Â£180, SCC's Green IT boxes are delivered to customers and placed in their required location. An all-inclusive service, with no hidden extras â one single price includes delivery, collection and recycling charges - clients are guaranteed full compliance with all regulations and receive official certificates on completion of the process.
SCC's unique state-of-the-art UK facility has been recognised for its role in driving forwards environmental best-practice in the business arena. The 50,000 square feet recycling centre offers a range of refurbishment, re-marketing and data disposal services for firms, where redundant IT can be taken away and new kit delivered.
