All organisations have an impact on the environment. TechnoBytes acknowledges that the services it provides may have a direct impact upon the environment and has reviewed its environmental effects and introduced programmes for improvement. Where resources allow, the environmental impact of all new activities, products and processes will be similarly evaluated.

- The amount of packaging materials received by the company
- Electrical equipment received by the company from the public and businesses
- The disposal of used batteries
- The use of land, water, fuels and energy in running our business

Waste and recycling

To reduce the environmental impact of our vehicles by reducing travel wherever possible, by the use of electronic and telephone communications.
To raise the level of awareness, amongst all sectors of the community, of the need for action on the environment so as to enable the individual to make decisions regarding the environmental impact of their lifestyles. We will endeavour to inform all customers of the WEEE directive, and encourage them to dispose of their electrical equipment in an environmentally friendly manner – including making use of our over-the-counter recycling scheme.
