Office Equipment in Carlisle, Cumbria


working to make your office a greener place

Tech4 takes the environmental impact of its business seriously. Waste electrical and electronic equipment threatens to overwhelm our landfills and waste enormous amounts of valuable metals. Our recycling service diverts large quantities of waste to recycling and refurbishment facilities. Family firms, large and small like Tech4 Office Equipment can make a difference in a region like the North West.

Office equipment uses plenty of power and lots of paper so those are the two areas that we focus on. We also encourage customers to use our remote maintenance and service options so that we can provide great service without always getting into van and on the road.

  • Power – shut down and stand by advice for businesses?
  • Energy efficiency - Low energy equivalents of some machines can be supplied?
  • Paper – Woodland Trust partnership to make sure that the carbon produced in the manufacture of all the paper Tech4 supplies is offset by carbon capture.
  • RecycIT – Tech4 is keen to repair, reuse and recycle office equipment from Cumbria and regional clients. We have taken every opportunity to work collaboratively with several of Carlisle's most reputable IT partners. This enables us to help you to recycle your redundant office and IT equipment in the safest, most effective and most secure way possible.
