SKILLS AND SERVICES
What we do and how we can help
Power, essential for any mobile, is currently our most popular recovered product. When we first started, we pioneered a new form of recycling. Since then, we have taken in tonnes of surplus accessories as spaghetti which our clients thought was scrap and turned it into value. Previously thought to be worthless and destined to be recycled, we transformed this product into reusable & resalable items. So far, we have recovered over 15 million products and currently processing over 250K items per month!
Planet earth is awash with chargers, leads and earpieces. Add upgrades, headsets, smartwatches to the mix and the choice is phenomenal! And the wearable tech revolution has only just begun! In terms of managing end of life and returns, accessories are a problem in terms of write-down and what to do with the sheer volume of product. This is where we step in. We remove the problem with our award winning processes and focus on delivering a competitive return whilst protecting brand and the environment.
Having proven ourselves with accessory recovery, our clients requested that we recover devices. We now specialise in damaged and end of life devices. We extend the device life so they can be placed where they are needed most. Whether that be in developing markets or closer to home, it allows people access to the latest technology for a lower entry price. Personal data is wiped. If not possible, the device will be recycled but not before harvesting parts to save the next mobile. 1.2m devices and counting!
Utilising our expertise in identifying and managing returned product / surplus stock, we can help solve our customer’s stock problems. Our speciality is accessories but we also manage devices. Whether its 14 day returns, obsolete stock or stock that cannot be returned for credit from the manufacturer, we can help return value. We will test, grade and categorise it. We will then manage the sell through using our established reseller channels to maximise value.
As one of the most accredited companies for recycling and waste management for technology, we can provide a complete audit trail from collection through to breakdown of raw materials. We can also provide the appropriate evidence notes to satisfy WEEE and CSR requirements. We work with organisations such as the Environment Agency and EMAS to ensure we are fully accredited, regularly audited and working within the required legislative controls.
GSUK provides full battery recovery and processing solutions for our customers. With our ABTO accreditation our solution addresses both the legal and ethical issues that often arise from the disposal of mobile phone batteries, as well as the commercial benefits of reusing tested product back into stock. Where stock is not required to be re-injected to our customers, we provide them with a competitive revenue return for their used battery cells.
We provide data wiping solutions for mobile devices and for hard drives. We have invested in technology that ensures that mobile devices or hard drives containing confidential information, is wiped clear as quickly and effectively as possible. We have the capability to process devices and hard drives with a multi-pass process to an extent that would exceed industry benchmarks.
Our business predominately recovers and reuses mobile technology products but we also do other stuff! We also provide full recovery, reuse and recycle services for hard drives, PC’s, tablets and set top boxes. We also offer recycling, reprocessing and redistribution services to large organisations that need to effectively deal with old, damaged and waste product lines.
To be able to give best value to our clients, you need to have a ready-made marketplace. Over the past 12 years, we have built a robust reseller network that extends to all corners of the world. They trust us to provide high quality products that are genuine, tested and ready for reuse. This network of resellers allows us to place high volume on the marketplace without eroding value.
