At Vyta, we are committed to continuously working to reduce our environmental impact. In accordance with the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive we recycle and reuse electrical and electronic equipment from IT assets that are unsuitable for refurbishment and resale.
What is WEEE?
Less than 1% of material recovered by Vyta from IT equipment ends up in landfill.
Vyta guarantees that all recycled equipment meets the relevant local and EU regulations on the processing of electrical waste. We provide a complete trail of the waste material’s journey to its final location to assure clients all waste we process remains within the EU.
We can provide you with a Certificate of Recycling for your assets, all our recycled equipment has the same level of security and traceability as refurbished equipment.
Is Vyta a WEEE compliant company?
All Vyta sites are R2 certified and also Approved Authorised Treatment Facilities (AATF) Centres where IT equipment, unsuitable for resale, is processed for recycling. Suitable materials including metal and plastics are recovered and specific items such as rechargeable batters, power cables and printer cartridges are passed for specialist recycling.
The remaining waste is shipped to one of our highly accredited recycling partners, of which we select and review based upon their best in class recycling and recovering rates as part of our ISO27001 supplier process, ensuring the best possible downstream recycling.
In 2021, we processed over
A total of over 194,000 IT Assets
This has prevented nearly 20,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions,which is equivalent to:
The weight of 3,300 adult male African elephants
The amount it would take 960K trees to absorb in a year
