Securing data in computer recycling If data is not properly erased before the computer disposal or computer recycling, sensitive information such as credit card numbers, personal financial data and account records of online transactions can land in the wrong hands. We ensure that private data on the hard drive is destroyed by performing the following steps:
- Receive computer for destruction in a securely locked vehicle
- Shred hard drives
- Separate the aluminum from the metals by an electromagnet device
- Send the shredded remains of the metal to a recycling plant
As technology is getting faster and cheaper, we are quite happy with getting stuff cheaper and cheaper. However, this is also a darker side, outdated, broken or discarded computers pose a serious environmental hazard. It is important to dispose off your computers ethically, otherwise, your equipment lands up in a third world country where low wage workers perform “dirty computer recycle” techniques exposing themselves to mercury, lead and other toxic materials without any protection.
Computer recycling is the reuse of computers and other IT devices. Computers are made from materials including metals, glass and plastics, all of which require energy to mine and manufacture. Recycling computer saves our natural resources and prevents water and air pollution, as well as emissions of greenhouse gas that are caused by manufacturing materials. For example, one million recycle computers save energy equivalent to the electricity used by thousands of homes in a year.
Recycling computer consist of putting up computers for sale, donating computers to organizations directly, sending computers back to their original manufacturers, or sending components to a local recycler. Manufacturers take back some old computers from customers and recycle or refurbish them.
