Recycling your old computer hardware (and paper!)

Recycle your old IT equipment

Remember to remove all data from old hard disk drives

Overtime most organisation can build up quite a collection of older IT equipment including desktops, laptops, old servers and older printers.  So at some stage you may want to know what options are available for recycling all of this equipment.

The first thing you must be aware of, is that the data on any old hard disk drives may still be accessible unless you ensure the data is destroyed.  While there are software applications that will wipe the data from the hard disk drive the most reliable method is to have the hard disk drives shredded.  We recommend you use a services like Pulp Hard Drive Destruction
