Computer Recycling & Hard Drive Shredding

Nearly every business in the UK will own electronic devices which store data on a hard drive. When your business no longer needs a computer or data storage device, then it’s time to consider computer recyling.

Destroying the computer's hard drive is the only way to be 100% sure that your data can’t be stolen. 

Whether the device is a PC, Apple, desktop, laptop, USB or mobile phone, the information stored on it can still be accessed and used illegally by fraudsters – even if the data has been erased or overwritten. The only way to protect yourself is to shred the hard drive.

Data theft can have catastrophic long-term effects on your business, clients, staff and suppliers. Ensure it doesn’t happen to you by taking advantage of our trade waste services, including: business bin collection, on site shredding, hard drive destruction and computer recycling for businesses. 


On site hard drive shredding

A First for the UK

STE Waste is proud to be the first company in the UK to offer an on site hard drive shredding service thanks to our mobile shredder on wheels.

For ultimate peace of mind, our mobile shredding service we’ll visit you at your business premises with our state of the art shredder and shred your unwanted office hard drives and devices whilst you watch.

In a similar process to our onsite paper shredding service, we'll then take your shredded materials away for recycling.

If you are a business in the Manchester and Cheshire area that is in need of an electronic data clear out, contact us today and we’ll send a shredder over to you as soon as possible to efficiently shred your hard drives and recycle your old work computers.

For non-business customers we provide a domestic local computer recycling service.

WEEE recycling

All UK businesses are required to report the disposal and recycling of Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE). 

STE Waste will always apply the strict WEEE recycling Code of Conduct, so we can supply your business with an audit trail for all your redundant computer equipment.
