We generate around 50 million tonnes of e-waste every year.

Technology is a powerful asset in the digital age. The latest devices have transformed how we communicate, work and access information.

​​However, as technology continues to advance and businesses upgrade their infrastructure, the issue of e-waste grows. The rapid turnover of electronic devices contributes to growing environmental concerns.

Most of this technology is still usable, yet tonnes of it ends up in landfills every year. As humanity’s impact on the environment becomes clear, green initiatives are crucial for moving towards a more sustainable future.

Sheffield has transformed itself from the ‘Steel City’ into a vibrant centre for technology and sustainability. Companies play an important role in this drive for sustainability by being conscious of their waste and how they dispose of it.

If you’re looking for a sustainable way to offload your unused devices, we’ve found some of the best places in Sheffield to donate or recycle old tech.
