 SATCoL is the trading arm of The Salvation Army raising money for charity through nationwide reuse and repurposing schemes. As the largest charity owned textiles collector in the UK, SATCoL provide a hub for businesses to donate excess, returned or faulty stock that can be reused, repurposed or recycled. Working together with brand partners, local authorities, schools and so more, SATCoL lessens the environmental impact of disposing of goods by extending the useful life of products.

SATCoL's latest initiative is a free police and government approved data wiping and reuse solution. The project aims to save companies money and give unwanted IT equipment such as laptops, PCs, phones and tablets a new lease of life. By securely destroying all the data on the devices, SATCoL provides a secure solution to disposing of used IT equipment, with the additional benefit of repurposing them for resale.  Donated equipment is distributed to SATCoL's 240 retail outlets and sold via a dedicated e-commerce platform. This means donated equipment is made available to those where IT devices are unaffordable or inaccessible and funds raised are given to The Salvation Army.

 Sophisticated software is used to destroy the data from laptops, PCs, phones and tablets and ensures everything is removed to the UK standard. This includes the UK Police standard HMG Infosec Standard 5, which is certified by the National Cyber Security Centre as well as other world standards, including those in the US and Europe.

This service is fully funded by SATCoL which can significantly reduce spending for businesses currently paying for a data destruction service.

SATCol is the largest charity owned textiles collector in the UK and  is actively working to support organisations to reduce their carbon footprint and combat climate change. Through their reuse and recycling schemes, they extend the useful life of products, and divert items away from disposal and landfill.

 The profits that SATCoL generates through this incredible service is donated to The Salvation Army to continue to support the great work they do. This includes specialist support for survivors and potential victims of modern slavery, shelter for those experiencing homelessness and so much more.
