DONATE YOUR UNWANTED PERSONAL LAPTOPS, PCS, TABLETS AND MOBILE PHONES TO A GOOD CAUSE

Looking to upgrade to a new computer, laptop, tablet or mobile phone? DonateIT helps members of the public safely and responsibly dispose of their old personal IT equipment, securely destroying any data held FREE of CHARGE.

Using the DonateIT scheme helps the environment, and at the same time benefits charities and worthy causes. Find out about our partner charities: Aid Box Community, British Heart Foundation, CLIC Sargant, Help 4 Heroes and the World Wildlife Fund.

If you are a member of the public and have unwanted laptops, PCs, tablets or mobile phones you can choose from one of the following options:

1. Drop off your equipment at a location near you

2. Book a collection for your equipment*

The DonateIT scheme is operated by Blackmore Ricotech, one of the UK’s leading Secure IT Asset Disposal (ITAD) businesses. The secure destruction of your personal data is guaranteed.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF THE SCHEME?

Cash and computers for charities and good causes
If you leave your old IT equipment at a drop-off point, the charity elected by that drop off point will receive 50% of the net income (revenue after handling costs) from your donated item/s.

Free, secure destruction of your personal data
You can be safe in the knowledge that all your personal information is completely and irrevocably sanitised by our rigorous data destruction processes so there’s no risk of private data getting into the wrong hands. All this, without charge to you.

A green solution
Nothing ends up going to landfill sites – great news for our environment!

HOW THE SCHEME GENERATES INCOME

Once the donated equipment is collected and all the data destroyed, it is assessed to decide how the maximum value can be obtained:

  1. The equipment is tested and refurbished for reuse if possible
  2. Alternatively, it will be dismantled to maximise component reuse
  3. Any material that is not suitable for reuse is recycled

*It costs just £10 for a member of the public to arrange a DPD Tracked Collection of up to 10kg of personal IT kit.
