Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency, ‘Don’t Just Dump IT in Landfill’
DVLA has met the environmental challenge to replace the sending of redundant IT kit to landfill by letting a contract to recycle and reuse used IT equipment.

DVLA let a nil value contract to a local SME that will pay commission to the Agency through selling re-marketable assets. The SME employs vulnerable adults within South Wales valley communities, 90% of whom require support. Efficiency cost savings are c.£275,000.

As part of this reuse strategy, the Agency also provides free IT assets to good causes, including local schools, schools in Africa, and the NHS.
