"A good deed every day" is our motto, which is why this issue is of great personal importance to us. Millions of truly old devices are lying around in drawers, gathering dust in boxes and shelves of IT departments, because they don't actually have any market value anymore. Actually...!
Because even really ancient digital devices contain valuable, recyclable raw materials such as gold, cobalt, palladium, etc.. We want to reclaim these precious resources so that they can be reused. That is why we collect old devices all around Europe in highly publicized recycling campaigns, delete the data with total security, send them to be disassembled and donate the returns.
We are honored to do so voluntarily and for charitable purposes. It's as simple as that!
