The Problem

The world produces as much as 50 million tonnes of electronic and electrical waste (e-waste) per year, weighing more than all of the commercial airliners ever made.

Only 20% of this is officially recycled. By 2030, the global total is likely to swell to 74.7 million tonnes. This makes e-waste the world's fastest growing waste stream.

The Solution

Misco has partnered with KOcycle to ensure that redundant IT assets can be re-purposed in the UK and all over the world. Data Security and Sustainability form the backbone of this joint venture.

We collect redundant technology throughout the UK and across the globe.

Together, we are aiming to build a forest with a target to plant over 2000 trees during 2021 helping to offset carbon emissions generated through IT usage.

Our initiative has 4 goals
Peace of Mind

Our process provides peace of mind by guaranteeing complete, certified, data-security across all assets collected. We report via our dedicated client portal providing our clients regulatory assurance.

Reduce E-Waste

0% to landfill. We reduce, reuse and recycle wherever possible.

Promote Recycling

Almost every device that Misco sells is replacing something else. We're helping our customers to recycle the old when purchasing new.

Plant Trees

In response to every collection, we plant trees. This helps to offset carbon related to IT consumption. We also provide a comprehensive sustainability report allowing for the offsetting to be realised and aligned to our client's internal sustainability strategy.

The Process Turning computers into trees
Book a collection via your Misco Account Manager

You'll receive access to our online asset tracking portal and be provided with a unique job reference per collection.

KOcycle collect from your premises

Your redundant IT assets will be collected at a convenient time by kocycle's experienced engineers using DocuSign to complete the chain of custody and then safely transported in GPS tracked, secure vehicles to kocycle's ISO certified ITAD facility in Sudbury, Suffolk.

Now, sit back and follow the progress!

Every asset will be listed into a full inventory which is available to view via our online portal. Each asset it then audited and processed, securely data-erased, graded and sold for re-use around the world, with the proceeds going towards global tree planting initiatives that offset carbon emissions.

Assets of no value will be broken down to component level for raw materials, in line with our 0% to landfill commitment.

A full inventory, Data Erasure/Destruction & Recycling Certification will be available to view via our online portal.
