The demand for newer, superior technology has increased the pace at which current devices reach the end of their useful lives. As a result, the question of what to do with obsolete electronics has become a global issue, There are fundamentally two issues: data security and the WEEE Directive.
ITAD disposal services are regulated by the Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013, so clients are already focused on their ‘reuse, reduce, recycle’ ethos. Some IT asset disposal companies have a zero landfill policy and hold ISO 14001; the international standard for Environmental Management – demonstrating their commitment to environmentally friendly ITAD.
Not only does this route ensure complete data destruction, safe disposal of redundant IT equipment and the avoidance of any data governance issues, but also buy-back schemes mean that you will receive a residual payment for recycled components for the remanufacturing process. Legacy or surplus IT equipment can provide clients with additional revenue when they sell redundant IT assets.
Our secure IT Asset Disposal services include complete asset management, inventory collation and IT asset disposal, which are both mobile and cost effective. As a fully WEEE certified company with a hazard waste disposal license, our primary objective is to refurbish and resell as much of this equipment as possible, with very little going to waste.
Do you have a store room overflowing with legacy IT? Do you need help to recycle or decommission it securely and compliantly? Ultima has partnered with N2S, specialists in large scale multi-site de-installations and decommissioning of IT equipment including desktops, screens, unified comms/telephony and managed print.
If you have an asset list including make, model, part code, quantity, full site location, our Ultima maintenance team can provide a quote to you to dispose of your assets or send one of our engineers to your site to compile the list and assess the transportation and access requirements if to be disposed of off-site.
