We are pleased to be able to offer a computer recycling and disposal service for both commercial and domestic customers.
We know we are not the only company offering this service so we thought it is worth pointing out a couple of things to bear in mind when giving your old computers to a company to dispose of.
When you give your Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment to a company to dispose of, that company has to have licences to be able to legally accept and deal with your waste.
We have all required licences:
- SEPA (Scottish Environment Protection Agency) Registered Waste Carrier/Broker
- SEPA Paragraph 48 Exemption to store waste
- SEPA Paragraph 47 Exemption to refurbish IT equipment
- Registered under the Data Protection Act
- Waste Transfer Notes issued
Make sure you are giving your waste to someone who is licenced to accept it – it’s your responsibility!
Data Destruction Capabilities
There are lots of free utilities on the internet for wiping hard disk drives. Whether they work or not is debatable and this is not the arena for that debate, but to ensure customer data security we only use UK Government CESG approved hardware and software to destroy hard disks and erase data – naturally it costs us more but it is a price worth paying for customer data security and peace of mind.
We use Tabernus CESG certified data erasure software and provide Certificates of Destruction showing the serial numbers of all hard disk drives destroyed for customer records and audit trail.
Externally Audited Company
Our data erasure and destruction services and our computer disposal, recycling and resale services are ISO 9001 Quality Management and ISO 27001 Information Security Management certified and we are audited annually by an external auditor.
Again, this is an additional cost to us but we feel it sets us apart as a secure, legitimate computer recycling and data destruction specialist.
We are also Affiliate Members of the Asset Disposal and Information Security Alliance (ADISA) – an organisation dedicated to promoting industry best practice.
All of this makes us a great choice for computer recycling in Glasgow!
