    What Are IT Disposal Services?

    IT disposal services can encompass a wide range of solutions. This includes data destruction services, eco-friendly computer recycling and secure IT asset disposal options. The aim is to carefully manage everything from hard drives to electronic equipment to ensure it a) doesn't end up in landfill, b) can be recycled, and c) all data is destroyed where necessary.

    When Is Data Destruction Required?

    Secure data destruction is required if you have old computer equipment which stores confidential data on it. This could be a hard drive or even media such as DVDs or USB sticks. This type of IT equipment can hold a lot of personal data, such as customer names and addresses or staff information.

    Data breaches can lead to a lack of trust in your company, and it may even lead to an ICO fine if you fail to remain compliant with regulations set out in the Data Protection Act.

    Old IT equipment and electronic waste must be managed as securely as possible. This includes when it's installed at your business, you relocate to a different site, it's updated with new software or when it's no longer required. This is when an IT disposal expert like Gigacycle becomes an invaluable resource for many companies.

    What Are the Different Data Disposal Services?

    For secure IT disposal services, there are three main forms of secure data destruction.

    Data Shredding Services

    If a data disposal company offers shredding services, this will involve the use of advanced machinery which physically shreds your equipment. The pieces will be as small as 6mm, so if you choose this type of asset disposal, the device can't be used again. It's ideal for smaller devices such as hard drives, mobiles, CDs, DVDs, USBs and more. It's also a good option if another destruction service fails. Our shredders are mobile, so we can perform this at your site for your peace of mind if you get in touch to request this.

    Data Erasure Services

    Data erasure disposal methods are highly recommended. One of the main benefits is that the asset can be used again once it's wiped, so you could opt to have it updated and redeployed within your company, saving you money. During secure data erasures, every block of data on the asset is overwritten so that recovery of the old data is impossible. Our software will let us know whether the process was 100% successful. If so, a certificate of destruction is produced for every asset erased, showing the unique serial number so that you know your equipment has been managed properly.

    Degaussing Services

    Degaussing is an alternative destruction method for any magnetic media such as hard drive devices and floppy discs. Our degaussing machine generates a strong magnetic field which destroys the data on the asset. However, recovery of the device isn't possible, so this wouldn't be suitable if you wanted to use the equipment again.

    Get in touch if you have any more questions about the destruction services we provide.

    Is Our IT Waste Recycling Eco Friendly?

    If you're looking for an IT waste disposal company, always check whether they provide recycling services compliant with Environment Agency standards. Not only is Gigacycle a licensed waste carrier, but our environmental accomplishment is very impressive.

    We operate a 0% landfill target, so every asset managed at our secure computer disposal and recycling facility is reused wherever possible. Reusing assets is one of the best forms of recycling because it requires much less energy than having to manufacture a new piece of equipment from separate raw materials. However, anything deemed unusable can be separated into parts for recycling. Materials commonly found in IT equipment include plastic, metal, glass and electronic boards. We may even reuse these components during a computer refurbishment service.

    When we recycle old computers and provide IT waste collections, everything we do is compliant with WEEE Directive regulations. The WEEE Directive stands for the 'Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Directive', detailing responsibilities for how this type of waste is managed, including environmentally friendly disposal requirements.

    What Types of WEEE IT Recycling Do We Offer?

    As a WEEE Directive computer disposal expert, we perform a wide range of solutions within IT asset management. Many e-waste disposal companies may just offer one or two services, but we provide options across the full spectrum of IT recycling.

    This includes:

    Full IT asset management: If you're looking for a computer disposal company who can manage all your recycling needs, we've got you covered.

    Resale & remarketing: Generate revenue from your old equipment with our remarking services. We'll take care of the whole process for you from start to finish.

    Data destruction: We offer a range of certified data destruction services to ensure confidential information is fully wiped from assets during any IT disposal or equipment recycling process.

    IT installations, relocations, redeployment & decommissions: From preparing IT equipment with new custom software to redeploying it at your business premises, we manage the entire process for our clients.

    Managed IT services: We offer leading services for the management and support of your company IT systems, thanks to our fantastic technical ability and capacity.

    GDPR compliance: Is your business GDPR compliant? Companies can use us for all their GDPR needs, from checking your compliance to project mapping and providing legislative advice.

    Why Choose Our Computer Disposal Company?

    If you're looking for an IT waste and recycling collection management service with a difference, here's why we think we're a cut above other disposal companies.

    Full Audit Trails

    Every asset we collect and recycle is given a barcode and tag, logged on our system to provide a business with a full audit trail, detailing its management from collection. Your business can access this information through our secure online portal, using the unique login details we provide you with. You can also view data destruction certificates here and book future waste recycling collections. Contact us if you want to know more about this feature.

    Strict Security Management

    Companies are impressed by our robust security facility, from our tracked vehicles and vetted staff to the security practices we have in place, including 24/7 surveillance, locked containers and metal detector searches.
