The need for secure IT asset disposal has grown significantly in recent times because of the increasingly large role that IT equipment plays in our daily lives. From the smartphones in our pockets to the laptops, tablets, and PCs that we use to get our work done, almost nothing is possible without the invisible IT assets that form the backbone of our digital lives. More devices mean more data, it is predicted that global data volumes will reach 180 zettabytes by 2025. This data must be disposed of in a secure and environmentally friendly manner. Wisetek customers trust us to ensure that their IT asset disposal needs are met in accordance with the highest local and international regulations on the disposal of IT equipment.


What is IT Asset Disposal?

IT asset disposal is a vital part of almost every business and is required for a variety of reasons. Given that technology advances so quickly, IT assets tend to have a relatively short life span and need frequent replacing. The problem is that IT assets cannot simply be removed and trucked off to the local tip since they contain sensitive data and substances that can be harmful to the environment. Many companies choose to make use of professional computer recycling service providers instead of burdening their internal IT departments with this time-consuming task.

The IT equipment recycling process consists of a few distinct phases, namely:

  • Removal of redundant equipment.
  • Sanitising of sensitive through data erasure or hard drive destruction.
  • Recycling or re-marketing of redundant IT assets. IT assets earmarked for recycling are broken down into their component parts and recycled in accordance with the principles adopted by eSteward certified recyclers.

Only 40% of Europe’s e-waste is being recycled with the rest ending up in landfills where it damages the environment and can potentially be harmful to human health. By using a certified IT disposal service like Wisetek, this problem can be reduced.
