Collection and Recycling Charges

Compliant Information Technology Asset Disposal and Secure Data Destruction

Collection and Recycling Charges

Do you have any Computer, Information Technology(IT) or Electronic Office Equipment no longer required?

New or Old, Working or Not, we take it all!

We believe that there’s no way around it, once your old electronic equipment is decommissioned it changes from an asset to liability. Our goal is to make sure that once the asset is decommissioned you never have to worry about it again from either a data security or an environmental perspective.

To book a collection, please call us now on 01 460 44 44 or email info@officetechnology.ie or contact us via our Contact form with your requirements.

We offer a Free Computer and IT Recycling Service subject to the inclusion of 25% Computers within the batch of equipment to be recycled. In addition we are offering a free Data Destruction service and a Free Collection service (Dublin only).
