Product Reuse and Recycling Programs
Since 1997, over 45.5 million pounds of obsolete products collected internally and from customers were processed through our product parts recovery facility and third-party facilities. Many parts were refurbished for future reuse as replacement parts, while the remaining materials were delivered to end of life electronic equipment recyclers. In 2021, over 250,000 pounds of end of life electronics were collected as a part of this program.
Unisys participates in a variety of community outreach programs that involve donations of excess office supplies and equipment, office furniture, and electronic media to schools, non-profit organizations and small businesses. Over the years many tons of previously used equipment has been diverted from landfills as the result of such outreach programs. In addition, Unisys actively participates in the recycling of aluminum cans, glass bottles, paper, cardboard, and packaging materials.
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, we're involved in a variety of product-focused initiatives that help us, our customers, and the planet.
