KMK Metals Recycling has been awarded a contract to disassemble and recycle 7,500 experimental e-voting machines no longer wanted by the Irish government.
The equipment was bought in 2002, trialled in three constituencies and then mothballed.
The cost of storage is put at €55m and has been a controversial issue in Ireland.
The collection and complete disassembly is to be carried out by the recycling firm and within 10 weeks the components will be recycled as base metals and plastic fractions.
Ancillary equipment, including 1,200 transport trolleys, 2,000 hand trucks and 300 storage cases will be sold.
