Recycling e-waste benefits London

London— Peter Paduh of Maxitech was awarded the Young Business Person of the Year Award 2005 at the London Business Awards organized by the London Chamber of Commerce. Maxitech is tackling the toxic timebomb of obsolete computers by giving them a new lease of life. E-waste is the fastest growing type of waste thrown out by households as the IT industry updates products faster and faster.

Set up by Peter Paduh, Maxitech.biz opened its North London office in December 2003 and is a nonprofit company providing a reuse and recycling service for UK companies’ outdated IT equipment. The company also offers a certified drive-wiping service to ensure sensitive data is removed from old equipment.

In London alone an estimated 20,000 tons of old computers are disposed of each year, with Maxitech’s expansion plans and their additional site in Hornsey, North London they will be able to recycle 9,000 tons of used machines. They aim to increase trainee and full-time employees by 100% over the next year to accommodate the growth.
