End of Support Services

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.

The Industry Challenge

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 Capabilities

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.

1) Hard Drive Shredding

Our hard drive destruction services provide the mechanical destruction needed to securely dispose of your storage media. The process is safe, efficient, and data protection and GDPR compliant. Our high specification machinery is mobile so we can either come to your offices, offering hard drive shredding on-site or we can securely collect your data in our vehicle and shred at our offices.

2) Secure Data Destruction

With our sophisticated data destruction service using licenced software, which is CESF approved to IL6 security level, we can ensure your sensitive hard drive data is destroyed and completely unrecoverable. Before wiping, all serial numbers are recorded, then a certificate of destruction will be produced for each unit. Hard drives are then removed from site and resold, producing zero landfill.

3) Decommissioning & Upgrading

Our security cleared engineers will take full management control of the decommissioning project, providing the expertise and know-how to remove your old IT equipment and providing a tailored IT upgrade with reduced costs, by trading in old for new. We recycle redundant PCs, laptops, monitors, servers, network products, printers, EPOS, scanners, UPS, Cabling, AV equipment, projectors, telephones, mobiles and fax machines.

In most cases your equipment will actually have a residual value to us, allowing us to recover our costs and reimburse you either as a credit against new technology or as a bank transfer. This is also an environmentally friendly route, keeping waste to a minimum.
