Ethical Computer Recycling

Data Security is paramount.  Did you know that much of the UK’s waste is shipped abroad? And did you know that in some countries landfill waste is routinely scoured specifically to find old computers, laptops and hard drives to steal the data?

It is a legal requirement for businesses to properly erase all client and personal information prior to disposing of old equipment, A similar process is strongly recommended for home-user devices too. Secure erasure methods vary with completely free solutions available in many cases.

Professional secure erasure is exceptionally affordable too: remember, it is more costly by far if data ends up falling into the wrong hands.
