Frequently asked questions

What is IT asset recovery?
Click to view answer
IT asset recovery is the process of safely and efficiently reclaiming and reprocessing electronic equipment and hardware, such as computers, servers, and mobile devices, when they reach the end of their useful life. The goal is to extract maximum value from these assets through resale, refurbishment, recycling, or proper disposal, ensuring environmental responsibility and data security. This process not only mitigates environmental impact by diverting waste from landfills but also provides financial returns or cost savings to organisations.
Can all IT equipment be recycled or refurbished through IT asset recovery programs?
Click to view answer
While a significant portion of IT equipment can be refurbished or recycled, the feasibility depends on several factors, including the age, condition, and type of the equipment, as well as market demand for certain materials or components. Refurbishing involves repairing and updating devices for resale or donation, extending their useful life. Recycling involves breaking down equipment into raw materials (like metals, plastics, and glass) that can be reused in manufacturing new products. However, some items may be too obsolete or damaged to refurbish or recycle economically and must be disposed of in an environmentally responsible manner, adhering to local regulations and environmental standards. Our experienced Commercial Team can work with you to assess your assets to determine the most appropriate and sustainable course of action.
How do you ensure data security during the recycling process?
Click to view answer
Data security is our top priority. We follow strict data destruction protocols to erase all personal information from devices before they are refurbished or recycled. Our processes are compliant with the highest levels of international data erasure, ensuring your information is securely handled and completely destroyed.
