London Borough of Enfield adopts
The Circular Economy approach

XMA, HPE and London Borough of Enfield

Enfield is a UK Local Government (Federal) agency in North London with a population of about 330K. They had been using a small local recycler for their end-of-use assets, but needed to work with a partner that could provide a secure collection service. As a governmental agency, WEEE compliant recycling is important as is strict data security.

XMA were the best company to address this situation. We were already Enfield’s resource for new IT solutions but until now had not been involved in the retirement of assets for the Borough. Combining a strong commitment to the environment (both in its own business practices as well as services it delivers to customers) and deep expertise in working with governmental agencies, XMA put together a solution that not only solved the customer’s immediate need but also provided extra funds back to the agency.

We teamed with HPE Financial Services to provide a Circular Economy approach to Enfield’s challenge by employing HPE Asset Upcycling Services. HPE Financial Services would take out the governmental agency’s existing hardware, securely remove data, then expertly refurbish the equipment and remarket it, returning value from the sale back to the Borough. By remarketing the assets, technology is returned to the circle and there is no e-waste, both of which are tenets of Circular Economy thinking.
