Sainsburys and Hewlett Packard will be working together to offer Londoners a chance to recycle their old IT equipment.
On September 6 between 11am and 4pm people can bring in their old PCs, laptops, fax machines, scanners and printers to Sainsburys Nine Elms store in Vauxhall for collection.
Once the equipment is collected it will be refurbished and, in many cases, computers will be given to local charities. The items that cannot be reused will be recycled at a specialised recycling plant.
Sainsburys environmental affairs manager Alison Austin said: This is a great opportunity for our customers to recycle any unwanted IT equipment conveniently, especially if theyve used the summer holidays to have a good clear out. Instead of having to drive out of their way to recycle, they can drop their old equipment at the Vauxhall store before their weekly shop. This saves time and helps the environment, and were expecting to see some real IT relics from the past brought to the store.
It will be interesting to see who brings the oldest or largest computer, especially if they have to come on a London bus.
