Recycling in the Rain

Today the Dell UK Green team held a recycling event for employees, which was successful despite the downpour of rain! From under our shelter and umbrellas we collected 9 pallets of outdated notebooks, desktops, monitors, printers and other IT equipment. We’re still counting, but we estimate this to be in the region of 2 tonnes of equipment. In addition, we have collected over 300 old mobile phones for the local Thames Valley & Chiltern Air Ambulance Trust who will recycle them and convert this to cash.

From the photos you can see that we collected all kind of brands of equipment, Trish for example is holding an HP notebook.

This event follows a similar employee activity in Cherrywood, where our Irish Green team collected around three quarters of a tonne of equipment on a sunny day in June.

Results like these are an indication of how Dell employees are joining Dell’s global ReGeneration movement, only with employees embracing these company values can we be the kind of company we’re striving to be – the greenest technology company in the world.
