  • Comprehensive IT & Laptop Recycling

    Not only do we specialise in the safe disposal of hard drives, data destruction, and telecommunications decommissioning, but we also recycle ancillary IT items such as metals, cables, AC adapters, and packaging.  

    We dispose of these items in exactly the same way we destroy other larger IT assets and WEEE waste; securely and in an eco-friendly way. We apply the same zero landfill mentality to these smaller electrical items – everything that can possibly be recycled, repurposed, or sold off will be.

    If you have any questions about what type of IT recycling we cater for at our purpose-built site in Wigan, Greater Manchester, then speak to the team who will be happy to discuss your recycling requirements.


    Don’t just recycle your old computers

    Many people don’t realise that ancillary electronic items are just as recyclable as the bigger items that they are connected to. Cables, wires, AC adapters, dongles, hard drives, and keyboards can easily be stripped down and their components reused or donated in other products.

    With items like this we still collect them using our own vans – many times this collection service is free of charge –  and we’ll dispose of them in a conscientious manner. Many of these components contain materials that don’t decompose, so we make a point of recycling them. Rest easy knowing that you’ve done your bit for the environment and that your old IT e-Waste has been repurposed rather than sitting in a landfill.

    What our clients say


    "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."

    "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."

    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."
