Top items refurbished and repurposed

In April we refurbished 1,604 items. Our recovery rate for mobile phones was through the roof (1033.33%) due to most of these being delivered in March and recovered in April. All items that were not recovered were ethically recycled at our recycling facility in Welshpool. This approach enables us to maximise the environmental, social and economic value for retired IT equipment.
