Computer Equipment Disposal

At Absolute IT, we offer a secure computer equipment disposal service that is cost-effective and completely eradicates data security risks.

Computer equipment stores a large quantity of sensitive data that must be disposed of carefully to ensure your customer’s safety; and your own compliance with the Data Protection Act and the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). It simply isn’t sufficient to ‘wipe’ computer equipment by conventional means, as this leaves the data itself intact and liable to be retrieved by another user.

When going through an IT refresh, or replacing computer equipment, it is essential you choose an IT asset disposal service that fully destroys all sensitive data through data sanitisation or HDD shredding.

How Absolute IT can help

Our team of professional data security engineers have the expertise and technology to safely dispose of all unwanted computer equipment in a safe and environmentally sustainable way. We can arrange secure collection of your IT assets for data sanitisation and secure recycling at our facility in Derby.

Alternatively, we offer a mobile data sanitisation and HDD shredding service that can come out to your site at a time of your convenience: our secure mobile unit is equipped with shredding technology and internal CCTV so you can be assured of complete safety for your data.

We provide a fully documented audit trail for each IT asset that we process.
