Reuse Technology Group offer an IT disposal service that is fully WEEE compliant and adheres to legislation set out by the Environment Agency.
The cost for the service is dependant on various factors.
Once the redundant kit has been collected from the client, it is brought back to our warehouse where we asset tag and list each item. We then produce a report for the client, which details all of the units that have been collected along with the specification.
All end of life equipment that has no resale value is ethically recycled – we avoid landfill at all costs.
Any kit that has a value is remarketed and a subsequent revenue share is split between Reuse and the client. This process is completely transparent and the client can log into our system using a dedicated portal via the Internet.
By using our service you are promoting the reuse of IT equipment, whilst ensuring that any end of life kit is being recycled according to law.
If the equipment you are disposing of has hard drives, your business is responsible for the data stored on them, more importantly, liable for any breach of the Data Protection Act.
There are two very simple ways to ensure that data on hard drives is irretrievable.
The first option and the one that we would always recommend is to wipe the drives using special CPA approved software. This is the UK standard for secure hard drive data erasure.
The second option and the one we would always suggest avoiding is to destroy them using a certified shredding machine that reduces the hard drive to 16mm particles. Financial corporations commonly accept this method of destruction but by shredding the drives you eliminate any resale value whilst being unkind to the Planet.
Once the hard drives have been wiped and as long as they meet criteria, we will offer them for sale in the marketplace and you will receive payment directly from us. This is the most eco friendly method of data erasure.
We also have the ability to provide data erasure and/or data destruction certificates for hard drives.
