Airedale Comper Systems

This innovative and multi award-winning social enterprise is based in Airedale, Castleford, West Yorkshire and was started in January 2002 as a means to retrain long-term unemployed people and return them into the job market. It expanded rapidly and we now have three retail shops and a very efficient recycling facility, all to support our registered charity. We provide data security and data sanitisation free to the highly regarded American DOD standard on all equipment we take in. Hard Drive Shredding is available free of charge to any of our customers and clients.

Our aim is to keep 100% of this equipment out of our landfills and make much of it available for reuse in our communities. In doing so, we help to save on natural resources and reduce carbon emmissions. We use this equipment for vocational retraining of long-term unemployed, disabled or disadvantaged people. We provide volunteers and college students with hands-on practical training towards their IT qualifications.
