Edinburgh & the Lothians

Description

The Edinburgh Remakery provide a free and environmentally friendly way for businesses and organisation across the UK to pass on their old electronic equipment for reuse.

As an environmental social enterprise with a mission to reduce waste and support their communities, the Edinburgh Remakery aim to repair and refurbish as many of the devices they are given as possible. Where devices cannot be successfully refurbished, for example if they are too old or damaged, they are taken apart and their component parts used to repair other items or go on to be responsibly recycled. This ensures as little as possible goes to waste.

A portion of all the devices that can be repaired are also put towards their Tech Gifting Project, and given for free to disadvantaged families and individuals in order to alleviate digital poverty and social isolation across Scotland.

A simple, positive and cost-effective way to support your businesses CSR and environmental goals.

“The Edinburgh Remakery and the University of Edinburgh began working together in 2015. Throughout this partnership, more than 4,500 electronic items have been diverted from waste, and approximately 80% of these have been successfully repaired and given a new life. A cost-effective, environmentally friendly, and socially beneficial means for our old IT equipment to be reused.” - Michelle Brown, Head of Social Responsibility & Sustainability, University of Edinburgh
