Computer recycling & hard drive shredding
When your business no longer needs a computer, hard drive or other data storage device, then it’s time to consider computer recycling.
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, tablet, USB or smart phone, the information stored on it can be accessed and used illegally by fraudsters - even if the data has been erased or overwritten.
Protect your business from data theft
Data theft can have catastrophic and long-term effects on your business, clients, staff and suppliers. Make sure it doesn’t happen to you by taking advantage of our trade waste services, which include hard drive destruction and computer recycling, onsite secure paper shredding and business bin collection.
