Recycling cycle for d4T

Good for the planet, good for your finances!

We are committed to doing everything we can to help the environment. We’ve made changes to a number of our internal operations such as logistics and packaging, but we didn’t stop there!

We offer a number of green incentives to our customers. These offers not only solve your business’ IT needs with high-end devices on a bespoke leasing solution, but they also provide devices with a second life! This results in less of our environment’s natural resources being used to create new computers, as well as financial benefits for our customers!

Cash in your PC

Looking for a new device? Not sure what to do with your old PC? Whether it’s a laptop or a desktop, you can recycle your old PC and not only help the planet but help your finances too!

HardSoft is offering a minimum of £100 for your old PC, whether or not it’s in working condition! You can replace your old PC with a choice of a MacBook Air or MacBook Pro with the right specifications for your business needs!

Apple trade in offer


With our trade-in offer, you can part-exchange your Apple or Windows PC! When you trade-in your old desktop or laptop, you will receive cash or a discount when you take out a new lease on an Apple or Windows PC!

All you need to do is provide us with the serial number of your machine, and we will be in touch with a valuation and also to arrange the collection of your old device!



Our PreLoved range is comprised of both Apple and Windows devices, and gives a device a second life! Our refurbished devices come from the equipment returned by our customers at the end of their Flexi-Lease solution.

The device is still in excellent condition but was just no longer needed by the customer at the time. PreLoved devices are available at a cheaper rate and a shorter-term lease, with a warranty included for the whole 18 months.

Environmental benefits

Environmental Benefits

New IT equipment is a huge source of environmental waste. Each time a new machine is created, more fossil fuels, for instance oil, coal, and natural gas are used, and more raw materials like lumber, steel, and plastic are sourced via methods such as mining or deforestation. None of this is good for the planet, and as a society we need to reduce the negative impact we have on the environment.

Conserving natural resources is vital for the future wellbeing of our planet. By recycling your old laptop or desktop, you help reduce the strain on the environment, and contribute to a more sustainable society! When you recycle your old Apple MacBook, iMac, Lenovo ThinkPad, Dell XPS, etc. you’re recycling all the materials and components that are used to build these machines. This means there’s less demand to make source more of these materials, and therefore fewer fossil fuels, mining, and raw materials are needed to make new products!

The result of this is that there is a reduction in the harmful damage done to the natural world. The more we recycle, the fewer forests are cut down, the fewer wild animals are harmed, and less pollution fills our air and water.

Old devices being recycled

What happens once we collect your old device?

Once we have collected your PC, it will be checked over and all remaining data will be wiped. Once your data has been removed, your old machine will be sent to a facility operated by our third-party Trade-in partners. This company focuses on re-use and is a registered waste carrier with the UK Environment Agency.

Your old computer will be sorted, graded, and prepared to either be re-sold or to be broken down into parts. By separating the materials and breaking them down to their raw forms such as glass or metal, they can be sent back to manufacturers to create new products! Any parts that can’t be re-used are recycled responsibly!
