ICT equipment recycling scheme

Information about the ICT equipment recycling scheme, including how to apply

About the scheme 

Wherever possible, the Council actively works to recycle and reuse ICT equipment. Since the pandemic in 2020, an agile working strategy has been adopted so that staff can work from home and the office, and laptops have been made available to staff. 

During this time ICT have worked to provide reconfigured PCs, with new Wifi dongles and a Windows OEM licence. The ICT team have approximately 100 PCs available for eligible applicants.  

Applicant criteria 

The equipment will be donated to not-for-profit groups, which consist of: constituted groups, registered charities, Charitable Incorporated Organisation, Community Interest Company. No cash alternative is available. 

The not-for-profit organisation must provide evidence of the delivery of services in Surrey Heath. 

It is acknowledged that the ICT equipment is not new and is provided without warranty, but will be refurbished with a new dongle and Windows licence, keyboard and mouse. 

Priority will be given to local charities identified as high need by the Surrey Heath Community Support Working Group.   

All requests will be referred to the Housing, Safeguarding and Support Portfolio Holder for decision.   

Where possible the recipient will publicise the PC donation from the Council.  

It is recognised that these rules cannot cover every eventuality or combination of circumstances and therefore the decision of SHBC is final.
