Tech Data is enabling partners to offer their end-user customers even more attractive trade-in options for assured recycling and asset disposal of data centre and infrastructure products.
The expanded range of options is the result of new partnership agreements with specialist third-party suppliers. It covers leading industry brands such as HPE, IBM, NetApp, and other well-known enterprise vendors.
Mark Glasspool, services director, UK and Ireland, at Tech Data, said: “Improving sustainability to move towards net zero carbon goals is on everyone’s agenda. There is tremendous interest in recycling and re-using of IT equipment and, with the enhanced range of options we are launching, our partners can help their customers even more.
“We can work with partners to enable end-user customers to extend the lifecycle of their IT products and find really competitive trade-in options when they need to update or refresh their infrastructure. By doing this, partners can get a better return on their investments while moving towards their sustainability goals.”
Through its extended partnerships, Tech Data now has more recycling and refurbishment services capacity. All IT equipment – from servers to smartphones – can now be traded in or handed over for safe and sustainable recycling or refurbishment in line with all government and industry standards.
Tech Data’s programme enables partners to offer end-user customers a simple way to trade-in old or end-of life products for refurbishment or recycling, with all components and materials disposed of properly and in line with recognised environmental standards. Doing this also gives the customer some money back in their old IT equipment and devices, which they may be able to use on new systems and solutions.
Across Europe, Tech Data takes more than 90,000 items for trade-in or refurbishment in an average month.
