In December 2021 Recycle IT provided employment and training positions to a team of 18. This represents a 30.7% decrease based on March 2020 when Recycle IT closed due to the COVID 19 pandemic.
On re-opening in May 2020 employment and trainee numbers have recovered slowly. Today market factors including skills shortages and wage levels in some sectors (transport for example) and employment schemes rules are causing challenges in recruiting trainees and full-time employees.
Recycle IT work in collaboration with WEEE Ireland. Each year WEEE Ireland support the recycling of over 37,000 tonnes of waste electrical items including up to 120,000 fridges and 200,000 TVs and monitors.
Recycle IT contributed 652 tonnes to this total in 2021. Our teams support collections or drops offs from communities and community based organsations who have limited options and budgets available to safely recycle Waste Electrical And Electroinc Equipment (WEEE).
Recycle IT do collect cost-effectively from small and medium-size business organisations located in Dublin and surronding counties with income earned reinvested in opertional activities.
