EDS and Remploy e-cycle have tied up a multi-million pound IT recycling deal.
The three-year IT processing and recycling agreement will employ disabled people in the UK, said Remploy e-cycle.
Remploy e-cycle will manage many of the thousands of pieces of end-of-life computer equipment - from laptop and desktop computers to peripherals and servers - handled by EDS in the UK, Europe, the Middle East and Africa every year.

This includes collecting redundant IT equipment from EDS sites, grading and assessment, refurbishment and repair, re-imaging, recycling and disposal.
E-cycle - part of Remploy, the UK provider of employment services for disabled people - will also provide a full and secure data cleansing service.
Each piece of equipment will be refurbished to a standard suitable for redeployment, remarketing or as a donation to a third party or charitable organisation.
The work will be handled by Remploy factories in London, south Wales and the north of England.
Tony Stroud, general manager of Remploy e-cycle, said, "EDS and its clients can be assured of a full end-of-life service, which will enable full compliance with current legislation as well as supporting EDS in its own sustainability goals."
