Network equipment
We operate network equipment take-back programs in countries covered by the WEEE directive. In other countries, we provide take-back of network equipment if requested or contracted to do so by our customers or when it is required by law. While we offer secure recycling options, our customers often prefer to handle used equipment themselves to protect commercially sensitive information and to protect private information of individuals.
