We have very little equipment that is end of life, and we either have the disposal of old equipment as part of the replacement programme (and tenders etc). The small amount of faulty/broken or other end of life equipment is sent to a local WEEE compliant recycler for disposal or reuse as appropriate. We use a local supplier to minimise the environment impact of the process. The value or cost of this is minimal.

2. Start and end date of any and all contracts; including any current or scheduled tenders, relating to Data Eraser inline with GDPR requirements for, but not limited to, IT equipment (relevant products listed above).

If you wish to register to be kept informed of contact opportunities, we use the Delta procurement portal, where prospective suppliers can register to be informed of our Invitation to Tenders etc.
