Online trading tool launched for unwanted electricals

An online IT recycling portal will launch this month. Recycling Broadcast Network (RBN Online) said it had spotted a gap in the market for a facility that allows businesses to trade equipment that is unwanted or no longer needed.

The portal aims to bring together thousands of buyers, sellers and traders of surplus computer, IT, telecoms and network equipment.

Director Brendan Dunne said: “We hope RBN Online can bring together businesses in the IT or recycling industry allowing them to communicate their IT needs.”

The ability to recycle and re-use waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) is key because the amount of waste produced in this sector is increasing as technology is constantly upgraded. The Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA) has calculated that the UK produces around one million tonnes of WEEE each year. Most items are still working, can be repaired or used for parts.
