Everything starts with a Secure Recycling Collection.
This is the foundation of all services we provide; we attend your site, collect your redundant IT equipment/WEEE and issue a Waste Transfer Note.
All equipment is checked for data bearing media (hard drives, CDs etc.) and any hard drives are destroyed by erasing or crushing with a US Government NSA approved hard drive crusher that is approved for the emergency destruction of hard drives.
Asset labels and customer stickers are removed from equipment and everything is disposed of legally and in accordance with the WEEE Regulations.
This service is charged on the amount of equipment/waste to be collected and the difficulty of the collection and is suitable for disposing of equipment that does not contain particularly sensitive data – simply contact us to go over your requirement.
Additional Services To Meet Your Requirements
Certificate of Destruction
We can issue a Certificate of Destruction showing the serial numbers of all drives processed and the method of destruction, either crushing as part of the Recycling Collection or our more secure erasure or shredding options.
Contact us to see an example Certificate of Destruction and find out how it can help demonstrate your compliance with Data Protection Act obligations.
Enhanced Data Destruction
The hard drive crushing we carry out as part of a Recycling Collection may be sufficient for your needs, but in order to meet more stringent disposal policies we can offer a higher level of data destruction services.
We have a specialised hard drive shredder that can completely shred hard drives to 20mm or even 6mm pieces, effectively turning them in to corn flakes sized pieces.
Hard drives can also be erased using UK Government CESG approved data erasure software to HMG IA5 Lower Level or Higher Level – simply contact us and we can discuss your requirements to ensure we can provide a solution that meets your needs and budget.
