At MF Communications, our aim is to help organisations realise the value of their existing telecoms equipment. With our Asset and Recovery Scheme, we can help companies free up space by relieving them of any obsolete, legacy or unwanted telecoms equipment. Not only does this ensure this surplus-to-requirement equipment is disposed of in the most responsible way, it can also generate an additional income for the business.
- Achieve the right price for your redundant equipment through our global contacts
- Greater financial return compared to scrapping costs
- Revenue to purchase new business phones or a telephone system
- Keep the equipment with you, or we can store it at our warehouse facility, free of charge
- Full inventory of your business telecoms equipment
- Equipment cleaned and boxed into brand new packaging
- We will market and sell it on your behalf
We work with companies to tailor the service, and how it is delivered, to suit your specific requirements. We have recently worked with companies in Denmark and Italy where our asset management service has been extremely successful. You can opt for us to hold some of the stock and act as a distribution point using our experience in worldwide deliveries to ensure a maximum reach. You can also choose to keep hold of your surplus stock and we will work with you in order to maximise sales. Both options will lead to a profitable outcome for all.
The Green Telecoms Market is a viable option
Businesses have an obligation to ensure they dispose of their redundant electrical equipment in a responsible and safe way. Globally, now, there is a vibrant trade in refurbished telecoms equipment—the Green Telecoms Market is a secondary market the utilises used telecoms equipment.
When manufacturers upgrade their telecoms equipment, they declare the original products ‘end-of-life’. This means they will no longer produce any of the hardware associated with these systems, or provide support or maintenance for them. For businesses using manufacturer-discontinued telecoms equipment, the decision is whether to upgrade to a new system, or find a way to continue operating their existing one.
The used telecoms market provides a way for businesses to continue operating their end-of-life telecoms systems for as long as they need them. Not only does this provide cost savings for the organisations, it is also a sustainable and environmentally responsible approach. Keeping existing telecoms equipment in use, saves it from ending up as e-waste and reduces the environmental impact of new equipment production.
Sustainability and environmental responsibility within the telecoms industry
We are all responsible for looking after our planet and supporting a circular economy, one which aims to restore and regenerate, assuring products, components and materials remain at their highest value.
Long committed to sustainability and the re-use and recycling of used telecoms equipment, MF Communications is BS EN ISO 14001 compliant and accredited as an environmentally responsible organisation. Fully compliant with the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive, we ensure all electronic equipment that cannot be re-used is broken down for spare parts or recycled following the WEEE Directive.
Surplus and redundant equipment is a real issue in the telecoms sector
Communications systems are one of the biggest contributors to electronic waste. E-waste is a particular problem for the environment due to the materials used in the equipment, such as lead, cadmium, beryllium, plastics, gold, copper and palladium. There are up to 40 separate chemical elements incorporated into electronic waste, all of which are highly hazardous to the environment if not disposed of or recycled correctly.
According to the UN, the world could face mountains of electronic waste in the coming years
Constant and rapid advancement in communications technology, whilst of obvious benefit to businesses, has had an unfortunate negative impact on the environment. Within the telecoms industry, there is a particularly high turnover of equipment, due to the constant upgrading of technology and also movement away from hardware towards the cloud. With few UK businesses having a policy for dealing with surplus equipment, much ends up in landfill. This results in hazardous waste, when in fact it often still holds value and could be remanufactured and resold in good or as new condition.
