FREE ONSITE DATA DESTRUCTION
HARD DRIVES DESTROYED FREE OF CHARGE ONSITE
WE ARE THE ONLY COMPANY OFFERING FREE SECURE ONSITE DESTRUCTION OF HARD DRIVES AND OTHER MEDIA CONTAINING DATA.
Medium To Large Collections Upto 1.3Ton: UK IT Recycling Ltd have a fleet of satellite tracked vehicles able to collect computer related or electronic equipment from any mainland UK location.
Our uniformed engineers will attend your site and load your waste equipment onto our vehicle before handing over your WEEE directive and Data Destruction Act paperwork. This service requires no physical input from your staff as our engineers will carry and load all the equipment for you.
We can also carry out onsite data destruction if required with this collection service.
UK IT Recycling Ltd hold full public liability insurance and are fully insured to work on your site.
Small Amounts Of Computer Waste: We have a range of smart and secure recycling bins that can be delivered to your place of business anywhere in the UK.
These range from small 120 litre wheelie bins upto larger 1100 litre secure dumpsters.
These secure bins are suitable for any computer or electronic type waste as well as any media containing sensitive data in need of secure destruction.
We will deliver the bin/dumpster to your place of business and you simply call us when its full.
No onsite data destruction service is available with this option.
Large or ongoing Computer Disposal Collections: Some larger sites may prefer a bigger more permanent solution to electronic waste disposal and data destruction. In these situations UK IT Recycling Ltd can provide you with a 10, 20 or 40 ft secure shipping container. You simply load the container at your own pace and call us whenever you require us to empty it.
If you require onsite data destruction with this service this can be done when our engineers arrive to empty the container.
Onsite Data Destruction And Hard Drive Recycling: Again this service can be carried out at any mainland UK location.
Our engineers will attend your site in our onsite data destruction unit. We offer several levels of onsite destruction, these are: physical destruction of hard drives, floppy discs, DLT CD, DVD or any other media containing data. As an additional security measure usually only required by our Public sector clients we are able to degauss any magnetic media before we physically destroy it, this double destruction method is to UK Government ‘Secret’ level and is used for the most sensitive of data.
Our onsite data destruction unit is both quiet and totally self contained meaning no disruption to you or your staff while our engineers are on site.
UK IT Recycling Ltd are proud to announce the launch of a brand new computer recycling scheme for business large or small all over the UK.
If your company only produces a small amount of computer electronic waste then why not order one of our smart and secure UK IT recycling bins, dumpsters or containers for your office?
For a small fee UK IT Recycling Ltd will deliver a smart new recycling bin to your office, these come in a variety of sizes from a small 120 litre-320 litre bin or 1100 litre secure dumpster for indoor or outdoor use and can be easily moved around the office.
(larger bins and shipping containers upto 40ft are also available and can be dropped onsite at any location in England or Wales)
Nearly every week we hear a large organisation or Government department has had a major security leak. In 2009 it emerged that the personal details of 1 million banking customers were found on a computer which was sold for just £35 on eBay.
Also in 2009 the Government revealed that information on every prisoner in England and Wales had been on an unencrypted memory stick which had been lost by a private sector contractor.
In 2008 UK IT Recycling Ltd carried out a simple data recovery method on PCs purchased from major computer recycling companies trading on eBay. Out of the 10 PCs purchased 8 contained sensitive data from Schools, Business and a major UK Hospital.
The software used to recover this data is freely available on the internet.
The companies, Schools and Hospitals involved were all given the correct Environment Agency paperwork along with a ‘full data destruction certificate’ all printed by the companies they thought had carried out secure data destruction work as promised.
However instead of performing a secure software wipe that can take upto 5 hours per hard drive the recycling companies had simply carried out a low level format in the hope that body would look.
Responses to a questionnaire sent to many NHS IT support managers revealed a frightening amount of trust in unknown companies contacted through the internet and little knowledge of what happens to the NHS equipment once it leaves the site with one simply saying ‘we donate it to Schools in Africa’ but when asked how do you know it is donated to Schools once it leaves the UK? the reply was ‘I don’t know I just saw the picture on the web site’.
The only way to keep data 100% secure is not to trust it to a 3rd party in the first place.
All data should be destroyed before any equipment is handed over to anyone regardless of paperwork and promises.
Certified onsite data destruction should always be carried out and is the only way to ensure 100% data security. The fastest method is physical hard drive destruction and the most secure method is degaussing followed by physical destruction of the drive.
In the case of DLT, floppies and other magnetic media onsite degaussing followed by granulation is recommended.
UK IT Recycling Ltd can destroy over 1000 hard drives per day at a fraction of the cost you might imagine.
