Computer Recycling and I.T. Disposal 


Avenue recycling offer a service for the collection and destruction of I.T. equipment from commercial premises all over Northern Ireland.

The safe and secure disposal of redundant computers and I.T. equipment is a key responsibility for all business owners today.  I.T. equipment often contains confidential and sensitive information, which can easily be accessed by thieves and criminals.  If third parties access data on any equipment that you have sold, scrapped or donated, you could be liable for prosecution under the Data Protection Act 2018.

I.T Equipment / WEEE Collection

Waste electrical and electronic equipment are collected by one of over fifty specialist collection vehicles. The WEEE is then transported back to our Approved Authorised Treatment Facility. Our warehouse contains five industrial shredders, three of which are dedicated to the destruction of all types of electrical waste.


All waste is unloaded and visually inspected by our team of experienced operatives.


It is then sorted into different categories and begins to be manually dismantled.


The materials are then put through a series of industrial shredders.This shredding process reduces your company’s sensitive waste to a 15mm particle size, thus rendering all data completely inaccessible.


Strong magnets are then used to remove ferrous metals, such as steel. Other non-metallic metals are removed using electronic currents. Plastic is sorted into types before being sent for further treatment.

After treatment, the various recyclable materials are bulked up and sent to manufacturers for use as raw materials in a new production process, thus completing the Circular Economy.
