    What Is Computer Recycling?

    If we look at what happens with a general waste recycling collection, it refers to the journey items go through to convert waste materials into something new. Therefore, free computer recycling considers this process for e-waste and electronics assets, such as old computers and laptops. 

    The Manchester computer recycling service you use can recycle unwanted IT assets and computer equipment in a variety of ways, including refurbishing them, remarking them, upgrading them or even breaking down the computer parts to recycle as individual materials.

    Contact our team now to find out more about free computer recycling service options (or read our website), from secure PC recycling to destruction data shredding.

    What Happens to Data During Computer Recycling Services?

    Computers store a lot of information and data, often held on a hard drive. Even if you think you’ve wiped your computer before recycling, there’s a chance the data can be restored or private information can still be accessed on the equipment. Even if you want to book a free computer recycling collection, always think about how to keep data safe and protect the privacy of your staff, customers and company. 

    Check whether the computer recycling company you use offers secure data destruction via certified techniques. As a business, you may be breaching GDPR, data protection, information security and privacy policy laws if you don’t ensure the proper management of old IT assets during a computer disposal. When you contact us for a free computer recycling collection service, we can let you know more about how to recycle computer equipment AND remain compliant.

    What Is The WEEE Directive?

    The WEEE Directive is a key part of the computer recycling industry. It stands for Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment, setting out regulations to help reduce how much electronic and computer waste is sent to landfill or incinerated rather than be recycled. 

    Organisations can aim for this standard and put various measures in place to achieve excellent WEEE compliance, including the use and implementation of a computer recycling policy. This should outline plans for the recovery, reuse, refurbishment and free recycling of any redundant IT assets and computer equipment at your company. 

    You can also think about data protection compliance and how this will fit into any computer recycling policy or website privacy policy you implement. Speak to Gigacycle now for free computer recycling and information security advice.

    Do You Provide Secure Data Destruction?

    Yes. As part of our computer recycling Manchester services, we provide certified data destruction and shredding solutions at our secure local facility site. Our experts will permanently override any data left on computer equipment or hardware, such as your hard drive. This process is called data erasure and involves replacing confidential information left on your computer with unusable data. Every single block of information will be replaced. 

    All our data destruction and shredding services are fully audited, so you’ll receive a unique certification for every asset or piece of IT equipment erased and recycled at our site. Keep these for your records, which you may like to include as part of any privacy policy updates at your company. Contact us if you’d like more information about this service or book a collection now.

    What Happens If the Data Destruction Fails?

    We have a highly sophisticated and certified system which completes the data destruction procedure for us. Even if a tiny part of the process fails, we’ll get an alert, and we can perform the data destruction again or move onto data shredding. A shredding service breaks down the hard drive equipment or data-bearing media (e.g. data tapes, CDs etc.) into tiny pieces so that they can never be recovered. We even own mobile data shredding equipment, so can bring them to your businesses premises if required, and you can stay present for the data destruction. 

    Are You an Accredited Computer Recycling Service?

    Yes. At Gigacycle, we’re one of the most highly accredited computer recycling Manchester companies you’ll find. We’ve worked closely with the NHS, FTSE 100 companies and organisations in the education sector, thanks to our secure destruction data and computer recycling solutions. We have several ISO certifications, a WEEE waste carrier licence for Manchester and UK locations, and we’re accredited by ADISA – the Asset Disposal and Information Security Alliance service.
