Green Enviromentaly Friendly Computing
Green computing or green IT, refers to environmentally sustainable computing or IT.
This term generally relates to the use of computing resources to help reduce, minimize environmental impact, and ensuring social duties. Green computing is very much related to other similar movements like reducing the use of environmentally hazardous materials like CFCs, promoting the use of recyclable materials, minimizing use of non-biodegradable components, and encouraging use of sustainable resources.
As old computers are one of the worst offenders we at PC Support Glasgow take our responsibilities highly as the landfill mountain of unused computer parts is growing by the day.
We offer FREE reycling facilities for your old computer systems.
as of July 2010 we are sorry to announce we are unable to take any CRT style monitors for recycling.
NB as of September 2010 we wil no longer be offering free recycling facilities to businesses although we still offer business pc recycling for a small charge.* We will continue to offer free pc recycling to residential.
Simply drop off your old equipment at our workshop @ 2 Birkinshaw Street and we will take care of recycling your old unwanted computers. PC Support Glasgow do this not for profit.

* Reason we can no longer offer free business pc recycling - We are sorry to have to take this step but our aims with the recycling of old equipment is to help local community groups who find funding for computer equipment difficult or impossible to raise, and as such this service has associated costs and storage requirements involved to us. While we are quite happy to absorb this cost as we see it as giving back to the local community, unfortunately far too many businesses are ignoring this aim and using and substituting the word recycling wiith landfill and using as a dumping ground for equipment that has been sitting in storage cupboards for 20 years+. Again we apoligise to the businesses who are actually looking to recycle equipment which they have recently repalaced.
