GDPR compliant hard drive recycling

Hard drives and other IT equipment should be stripped of sensitive information before being securely recycled or disposed of.

We offer GDPR compliant IT asset disposal services for laptops, servers, computers, phones and more.

Using Blancco, the market-leading data sanitisation platform, for complete and secure data erasure during the hard drive disposal process.

For any items where data wiping is not applicable, we shred them in our secure BS EN 15713 accredited facility.

How is my data disposed of sustainably?

The items are wiped after they have been collected as part of the confidential data destruction process.

Where reuse is not an option, they are shredded and all material is separated.

Metals including steel, aluminium, gold and silver are separated for recycling alongside plastics and rubbers.
