Our planet’s resources are finite. We need to re-use limited resources whenever possible; and recycle at every opportunity. It’s particularly the case when considering disposal of waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE), one of the fastest growing waste streams.
- Our environmentally-friendly disposal and recycling service offers a convenient solution for disposal of redundant systems, components or items of IT equipment being upgraded or replaced.
- Participation offers the potential of financial benefits to your bottom line.
- Our recycling facility is accredited by the Scottish Environmental Protection Agency. As you’d expect, it’s a WEEE Approved Authorised Treatment Facility (AATF).
- Secure proprietary data destruction, reclamation of materials; and refurbishment of equipment to extend its useful life (when possible).
- Make a quick decision about disposal. It’s in your interest. The longer redundant equipment is left sitting around, the lower the financial return. The benefits brought to prospective new owners will be reduced too.
Questions of security
Data protection obligations and IT Asset disposal processes can be a major area of weakness for business enterprises. There is a duty of care to protect employee and client information under the 1998 Data Protection Act. Our data destruction service provides all parties involved with peace of mind:
- Proprietary information is protected throughout the IT disposal process we offer. Avoid embarrassment and ensure data does not fall into the wrong hands, which can result in prosecution and damage to reputation.
- We offer a range of bespoke options to meet your specific requirements.
- Where policy forbids hard disk removal, on-site computer disposal and disk destruction is arranged.
- A full serial number report and certificate of disk destruction is provided prior to removal of any chassis for re-sale or recycling.
