So how can you securely dispose of your old or unused IT devices and hard drives? Every company wants to save the planet or at the very least would like to make a difference, but in these modern times with so much legislation and so many rules to adhere to how do you do it in an environmentally but secure way?
With the continued growth of IT equipment to help with remote working, what do you have planned for your old or decommissioned assets? So much to consider and think about.
Devices can potentially hold information equivalent to approximately 1,000,000 documents, so ensuring that this information is wiped completely, and everything is securely disposed of should be a key element of any disposal decision.
Then there is the environmental impact to consider. Most devices contain enough heavy metals and toxic elements to pollute our air, land and water. They therefore simply can’t be put but in the “recycling or wheelie bin”, they must be disposed of in a responsible and environmentally friendly way.
