FREE recycling service with Zen Computers

Zen Computers now offer a FREE recycling service.

If your computer is ready for retirement, please don’t put it in the bin!

Simply drop your old computer in to one of our stores and leave us to take care of it.

Doing our bit for the environment…

As a company we’ve always encouraged repair and recycle as opposed to throw away and buy more.

Some older Windows laptops can be easily revived with a faster storage solution or more memory for example. We love Apple hardware too and this does tend to last significantly longer than a typical laptop running Windows even if the latest macOS is impossible to install. So there is a lot to be said for repairs and upgrades.

There does come a point however, particularly with electronic goods, when we have to consider replacement. Which leaves the question, what should I do with my old machine?…

Where do our recycled machines end up?

We use Masters Recycling in Yeovil who recycle the vast majority of the components in your old computer or monitor and now have collection points at both Glastonbury and Shepton Mallet Zen Computer Shops.

Need to recover your data from the old machine? No problem…

We also offer specialised data recovery and retrieval if your older computer won’t turn on. Drop into one of our shops or call to discuss.

Note: Our engineers will always securely wipe and destroy any data on your old computer before it is recycled.

  • My attempts to fix our computer and printer failed badly so I contacted Dave at Zen computers town Street Shepton Mallet. I was impressed with his friendly, down to earth advice and arranged to have the system tested at his shop yesterday. Dave phoned this afternoon to say that the computer was fixed and a new printer purchased and installed. The computer system is now home and fully operational again, all with a minimum of disruption. I am very happy to recommend Zen computer repairs

  • From the very start with raising a ticket about replacing the HD on my mac with an Ssd they where on the ball and very professional.

    The price they quoted was the price I paid, no extras which you can get when taking kit in to get repaired. They even gave cheaper options too, so not ripping the customer off.

    From dropping the mac up to getting in my hand was quick, alas not as quick as mac mac booting up now 😁 wish I had done it sooner.

    Great company to do business with, and great people to talk to!!!!

  • Had a screen issue with an early iMac and went to Zen Computers never having used them before. I have to commend them on their friendly and efficient service. I had feared the worst that it may have been terminal but not only do they use someone with an exceptional knowledge of Apple computers but they resolved a few other issues and it has come back to me and now works better than ever. Great service deserves to be acknowledged.

  • THE BEST! Took my Macbook Pro in this morning with a faulty battery and it was repaired and back to me by the afternoon. Not only are the staff quick to respond via email, but they are helpful in store and I can't fault their service at all. My follow-up phone call about a separate issue was answered in depth and I'm very grateful for their quick service. Thank you!

  • Amazing service! Having decided I needed a monitor to improve my homeworking set up, I contacted Zen via email at the end of my working day. A reply was waiting for me the following morning, which I followed up with a quick phone call for some compatibility advice. Zen confirmed they had the required monitor in stock and by early afternoon the same day it was delivered. Great to have amazing local companies like Zen: free expert advice and delivery same day - who needs Amazon!

  • Ray and the guys at Zen were so good & efficient. Within 3 days they were able to replace the screen on my MacBook, at a significantly lower cost that I had been previously quoted elsewhere. They were so good at communication and I wholeheartedly would not hesitate to recommend them. Thank you Zen!
