Interest in the circular economy is growing. More and more companies are striving to limit harmful effects on the environment. Circular stands for reuse of hardware and raw materials. This is in stark contrast to the old-fashioned linear system in which products and raw materials are destroyed at the end of their lifespan.
The Dutch ICT chain guarantees a strongly growing stream of surplus and/or written-off hardware. Hardware that can often be refurbished without compromising data security. In this way, valuable raw materials are preserved and naturally this contributes to the circular economy.
What does Holland Recycling do with your hardware that can be refurbished?
- Holland Recycling takes care of the collection of your hardware from your location
- The hardware is tested and registered upon arrival at the refurbishment site
- Data carriers are certified as destroyed or wiped
- The hardware is upgraded and defective parts are replaced
- All references to your company are removed (asset tags, stickers, etc.)
- You receive a declaration of data destruction, complete with the serial numbers of the data carriers.
It’s nice when a product is used for as long as possible, of course, but at a certain point, even the products that Holland Recycling has refurbished reach the end of their life. Holland Recycling already takes this into account when finding the right sales markets. For example, Holland Recycling only sells to markets that have at least the same recycling standards as in the Netherlands.

Our definition of IT Asset Disposal (ITAD) is ensuring that retired equipment is dealt with properly, responsibly and sustainably.

Holland Recycling is a partner of the Make-A-Wish Foundation. This voluntary organisation fulfils the wishes of seriously ill children. You can make a contribution by donating your discarded/surplus hardware through Holland Recycling. Holland Recycling will increase the donation by a further 10%. In addition, for every data carrier that we destroy, Holland Recycling donates € 0.25 to Make-A-Wish. In this way, you can help to fulfil a cherished wish.
