Waste Carrier, AATF & WEEE

Since July 2007, the UK has operated a take-back, reuse or treat and recycle scheme for used electrical and electronic equipment (EEE). This is intended to reduce the amount of untreated waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) going to landfill and to ensure that components are collected separately and processed correctly.What is an AATF?

An AATF is a licensed ATF site carrying out treatment on electrical and electronic waste. Treatment can include repair and refurbishment for reuse. When items are beyond repair treatments include depopulation, dismantling, shredding and the recovery of precious metals and plastics. An AATF operator can issue evidence notes for the treatment, recovery or recycling of WEEE. AATF status ensures Ultratec is able to offer WEEE solutions for any user or producer of IT.

Ultratec’s highly skilled team of engineers and technicians is what separates us from other AATFs, so your data is in safe hands. We have the capacity to repair items of IT that others have disposed of or deemed beyond repair. This results in increased reuse yields and reduced environmental impact.

This is why many organisations, including the Ministry Of Defence, are choosing Ultratec as their preferred partner for the safe disposal of their data and waste electrical and electronic equipment.

CESG (higher level)

Unlike other IT Asset Disposal (ITAD) companies, Ultratec prefers to use its own, in house designed Data Sanitisation Solution. Ultratec’s unrivalled heritage and experience of data storage devices enabled us to develop the Ultra 80, the UK’s first hardware based data erasure system.

Safe Contractor

Safecontractor is the fastest growing health and safety accreditation scheme in the UK, with more than 200 major clients and over 18,000 contractor members.Our accreditation has enabled us to look carefully at our processes and improve them where necessary. This means our work on customers’ sites is performed to the highest level of health & safety.

DIPCOG Approved Product and Services

The Defence InfoSec Product Co-Operation Group (DIPCOG) is controlled by the MoD to approve products and services for use by military and government offices in the UK and is mainly comprised of MoD and CESG members.Approved Machines
