Environmental change

Recycling your I.T. equipment with us means that you are ensuring that all of the hazardous materials inside your computers (mercury & gasses) are properly disposed of in accordance with WEEE regulations.

The disposal of electronics equipment is now strictly regulated. Each person and business now has a duty to make sure their equipment is properly disposed of. I.T. Equipment can contain harmful substances, which we properly dispose of according to these regulations. Renewal North West are registered with the Environment Agency for the processing of electrical, electronic and IT waste. We are registered waste carriers.


Your donation is either recycled or upgraded. By choosing us for your I.T. recycling, you are helping us to provide employment, work skills and training to long-term unemployed individuals, and enabling us to tackle digital exclusion and provide low-cost computers back into the community.

Community Computers is a not for profit initiative operated by registered charity Renewal North West (1145056). Funds generated from the initiative go directly back into our work to fund the running of operations and break down the barriers that keep people from working.

Residents can drop off IT donations at any open Stockport library or directly at our doors at Community Computers, Renewal North West. You can find your local library and its opening time at
