About Us

 

Founded in 2003 and revolutionised in 2011, environcom is now the UK's largest independent electrical re-use and recycling specialist of waste electronic and electrical equipment (WEEE). Our team has been sourced from a number of large blue chip companies within the electronic sector. The Grantham site operates under an Environmental permit from the Environment Agency. Our facility is fully licensed for the treatment of WEEE and now has an enviable reputation and already exceeds Government levels for waste processing. Our multi-site operation processes in excess of 100,000 tonnes of domestic and business electronic waste each year which in turn means this amount is no longer being landfilled. We have training and development schemes for each of our 200 strong team members who ensure that our reputation, focus, dedication, commitment and loyalty to our customers is upheld. We conduct schemes to create awareness in schools to engender our future generations with the ethos to save our planet.
