No matter the scale of your business, we can accept all of the following computer equipment and ensure that it is wiped free of all data before being ethically recycled:
- PCs and old computers
- Optical and ball mice
- Monitors (CRT, TFT, LCD and flat screen)
- Networking equipment (including routers, hubs and switches)
- Computer components (circuit boards, wires, cables & power supplies)
- Computer accessories (disk drives, external hard drives etc.)
Ensuring that your customers' sensitive data is protected to the full extent of the law can be difficult, especially when disposing of computers and electrical waste that are particularly vulnerable to data theft. The government can impose substantial fines and even prison sentences if confidential information is not kept secure by UK businesses in accordance with the Data Protection Act.
Use our WEEE recycling service and we will ensure that the data stored on your redundant computers is kept secure until it is completely destroyed to HMG INfosec 5 standard, one of the most thorough and effective data wiping standards in the industry. In the unlikely event that any data still remains on any of your waste equipment, it will be shredded and destroyed in a specialised facility to prevent any possible risk of data loss.
The government has released statistics which state that an estimated 2 million tonnes of Waste Electronic and Electrical Equipment are discarded by businesses and homeowners every year. As a result of this, the government has put in place the WEEE Directive, placing a legal obligation for businesses to responsibly recycle their old IT and electrical equipment to prevent it from ending up in landfills.
Our WEEE recycling service will help your business to protect the environment by recycling and refurbishing your waste equipment in an ethical way that meets the government's legal obligations. Through our service your unwanted equipment will be fully recycled and could even be refitted to give essential support within schools, hospitals and charities.
