Arranging for the disposal of redundant IT equipment can be a daunting business for the un-initiated. The WEEE regulations, a spate of highly publicised data losses and growing concern amongst users about where the equipment ends up have conspired to make this a subject that many IT professionals would prefer to have resting firmly at the bottom of their task list. The purpose of this session will be to dispel some of the myths and rumours and provide you with an insight into how the computer re-use and recycling industry operates in the UK and abroad
