Towards reuse networks for ICT: experiences from the ZeroWIN project

Ongondo, F.O., Williams, I.D., Dietrich, J. and Carroll, C. (2011) Towards reuse networks for ICT: experiences from the ZeroWIN project At Thirteenth International Waste Management and Landfill Symposium (Sardinia 2011), Italy. 03 - 07 Oct 2011. 8 pp.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


This paper characterises and analyses the operations of third sector ICT (information and communication technologies) reuse organisations in the UK. There are at least 46 organisations that repair/refurbish and sell reused electrical and electronic equipment (REEE) most of which deal with computers and related devices. Main donors for used electrical and electronic equipment (UEEE) are private businesses and public administration whereas major customers for REEE are private individuals. The organisations sold ~241K appliances in 2010. Using a case study, the paper also assesses the potential contribution of the organisations to a reuse network where materials/by-products from ICT industries are exchanged on a resource platform and ultimately channelled as raw materials for other industries. The paper critically discusses the findings and makes recommendations for consideration when designing and implementing reuse networks for ICT
