Electronic Equipment Recovery, Recycling, and Disposal
Promoting proper use and disposal of supplies
Unisys Corporation is committed to complying with all governmental legislative and regulatory requirements for providing environmentally sound recovery, recycling, and disposal of customer end-of-life Unisys branded electrical and electronic equipment. Many parts from end-of-life recovered equipment are refurbished for future reuse as replacement parts, while the remaining materials are delivered to end-of -life electronic equipment recyclers for disposal.
The Unisys End-of-Life Product Disposition Program has been active since 1997, which was well in advance of EU regulatory directives. From inception of the program over 45.5 million pounds of obsolete products have been recovered internally along with products from clients globally and processed through recycling partners and third-party facilities. In 2021, over 250,000 pounds of end of life electronics were collected as a part of this program.
Unisys utilizes only environmentally sound disposition partners. In the European Union, these partners are conducting business in a manner that is consistent with the requirements of the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive and related Member State legislation.
Whenever possible, Unisys promotes recycling opportunities, reduces waste generation and encourages the wise use of supplies and materials during and after their useful life. In our commitment to a cleaner environment, Unisys is involved in a variety of product-focused initiatives that help us, our customers, and the planet.
