    From our clients

    Quest Trust

    "’Plexstar were our chosen partner for our 'Global Recycling Day' held in school, giving the opportunity for our school community to safely and responsibly dispose of electronic devices, in accordance with WEEE regulations and as part of our Eco-Schools focus. They generously extended the offer of free collection, safe disposal and data destruction to the rest of the trust when we explained that we had quite a number of laptops and tablets that were obsolete. Plexstar provided us with a collection box and arranged a collection date that suited us, then provided us with full certification. I would definitely recommend them as their service was second to none. We look forward to working with them going forward, as they’ll now be providing the Trust with regular collections."

    Scan UK

    "Plexstar have provided an exceptional service to us over the past 10 years. Their customer service is superb and they’re always willing to go the extra mile to support and assist our operations. We can’t ask any more of them."

    Hitachi Astemo UK

    "Plexstar are our trusted supplier for Secure Asset Management and WEEE services and have been for many years. They provide an efficient, secure and reliable service that we can count on when needed."


    "As a major CSP in an overseas territory, it is always a challenge finding a cost-effective solution for telco equipment decommissioning and recycling. Having tried various service companies in the UK, Plexstar quickly stood out. Their diligence and expertise were critical to the success of the turn-key solution they offered, which shouldn’t be taken lightly given the logistical complexity that we faced. They managed the entire process for us, and the overall service and attention afforded was superb. I would not hesitate to recommend Plexstar to anyone and shall certainly be keeping them high up on our list of preferred contractors for the future."
