As Christmas gets closer, many of us are thinking about what we’d like from old Saint Nick this year and surely on many people’s lists are the newest and shiniest electronic gadgets – smartphones, game consoles, tablets and laptops.

And in an era where technology is forever being updated and improved, the number of out-of-date devices in our households is fast becoming out of control. Today’s consumers expect to be able to trade-in their used devices and receive cash back. Therefore manufacturers and retailers need to have programmes in place that meet legal, compliance, environmental and logistical requirements.
