A South Yorkshire IT Asset and Data Disposal company based in the heart of the Rotherham region, is playing its part in tackling the mountain of e-waste and has called on local footballing legend, Tony Currie, to help raise awareness.

S2S, which not only securely disposes of data but also hardware, welcomed Ex-England, Sheffield United and Leeds United player, Tony Currie, to officially open its new state-of-the-art secure processing centre at an event which also supported the company’s two chosen charities; Cash for Kids and Prince of Wales Hospice in Pontefract.

“I was delighted to attend this event and support this pioneering company who not only are sealing their place in helping to tackle a global problem but are proud of their local roots and their place in the local community,” said Tony. “It was great to see so many colleagues, friends and customers join them and see that a new era for S2S has begun in helping businesses deal with these ongoing and escalating issues regarding disposal of data and the associated hardware.”

In the last few years the business has doubled its turnover from nearly £2m to £4m and is now on track to continue this level of growth servicing clients in the financial, retail and SME sectors with their data security solutions and safe and accredited hardware disposal. Its ‘zero to landfill’ policy means that they recycle over 3,000 tonnes of material each quarter. All materials are then reused and recycled into other products including Tarmac. S2S has also refurbished IT equipment and donated them to help local charities, either to be to re-used internally or re-sold for profit.

“There has been a tangible shift in recent years regarding how we dispose of our ‘throw away’ items and our business model is set to support this continued growth,” said Grant Barton Director S2S Group. “Our new premises will allow us to double the volume of assets we process and will cement our future in the local economy for many years to come.”

Tony concluded; “It is the responsibility of us all to be aware of the issues facing our world and to do whatever we can to ensure waste is disposed of responsibly and wherever possible, reused and recycled. I wish S2S every success for the future and congratulate them on their forward-thinking business portfolio and operations.”
