A secure service
At PHS Datashred we take the collection, transportation and storage of your redundant electrical equipment very seriously. Your redundant WEEE will be collected by a uniformed, badged and security vetted member of staff, they will transport it in a secure and locked vehicle to a storage point at your local transfer station.
Once your redundant equipment has arrived, the data will be completely destroyed using an approved and trusted destruction programme. Once a series of checks have been undertaken to ensure that all traces have been removed, the hardware will be sent for re-furbishment. In a small number of circumstances, particularly when dealing with fault hard drives, it may not be possible to remove all the stored data. In this instance, the security of your company will take precedence and the hard drive will be shredded and recycled. All other non-storage component parts will then be salvaged and re-used in newly built computers.
“Re-furb, re-use, recycle”
At PHS Datashred we work hard to achieve our commitment that 100% of your computer will be recycled and that nothing will go to landfill. Our first option is always to re-furbish your redundant equipment and extend its serviceable life. In most cases, a simple re-furbishment will extend the life of a computer an additional 3 years.
When e-waste is obsolete or damaged and cannot be re-furbished, it is then broken down into component parts to be re-used in new computers. By re-using as many element as possible, we are limiting the energy use involved in recycling materials.
When all other options have been investigated and proven unsuitable, we will then ensure that waste parts are recycled by a specialist IT components recycler. By recovering and recycling even the smallest of constituent part, we ensure that no part of your computer ends up in landfill.
