POPs are everywhere. OCM will help you protect the environment.
Persistent organic pollutants (POPs) are a group of chemicals that are resistant to environmental degradation and can accumulate in the environment and in living organisms. They are harmful to human health and the environment, and they can cause a variety of health problems, including cancer, reproductive problems, and neurological damage.
With over 35 years history in the ITAD industry, how waste is handled at OCM is one of our priorities to ensure we comply with our ISO 14001 Environmental Management System’s objectives. Sorting of components and some materials is handled by OCM before being sent to recycling partners for further destruction and processing. All recycling partners have the relevant licences and registrations in place and are assessed annually to ensure they comply with OCM’s requirements.
Any waste items we identify or suspect as containing POPs will be packaged separately and taken to an incinerator that creates electricity for the domestic market.
See What Our Customers Say
We have become the first choice IT asset management partner of financial institutions, major retailers, multi-nationals and public sector organisations
“Having worked with OCM for some years, I can confidently state that their approach to customer service is exemplary. Our account manager is always highly responsive, very friendly, and consistently helpful, even if some of our requests are troublesome! OCM are a pleasure to partner with, I would not hesitate to recommend them.”
IT Service Delivery Director
“We use OCM as our recycling partner not just because they are good at recycling our unwanted IT equipment or because they follow good practices and standards to ensure we comply with the regulations. For us we use OCM over other recycling companies because of their commitment to raising money for local and national charities. Since our relationship with OCM began many years ago, we have raised tens of thousands of pounds. Our account manager is a pleasure to work with and he has personally helped to raise thousands for a local charity. As a company and as a collection of people, I would highly recommend working with them.”
Head of Technology Support
“We had limited time and resource to collate all equipment from various floors and OCM managed to sort in type order, identify data items and preparation for collection. Very happy with the asset reporting detail provided and erasure ID information”
