IT Equipment, Computers & Monitors
The Landfill regulations and WEEE Directive state that businesses and household users are no longer permitted to dispose of IT equipment through the general waste stream. The protection of data contained on mobile devices, tablets and computer hardware adds additional complications. ECL offers a professional recycling route that treats redundant IT equipment in line with all current UK legislation, whilst keeping your data safe. Reusable parts are recovered and used in new products. Hazardous contaminants (such as the lead found in CRT monitors) are kept from landfill and treated in such a way as to least impact the local environment, and any components that could contain data are securely destroyed.
HaRD DRIVE DESTRUCTION
Our hard drives and other such storage devices usually contain personal and confidential data such as business contracts, customer lists, passwords, credit card numbers and photos.
A quick format won’t stop their data from falling into the wrong hands.
Hard drive shredding is one of the most effective ways to destroy a hard drive. It involves running the drive through a shredder, which cuts it into tiny bits. Since hard drives store data on a platter, cutting it into small pieces renders the drive and any data on it useless.
If you are unsure whether your WEEE waste contains Hazardous components, give our experienced team a call to discuss your requirement.
