Our IT and media destruction service enables you to dispose of unwanted electronic equipment in a secure and environmentally friendly way.

Failing to dispose of digital records or old IT equipment securely can leave your company vulnerable to data exposure and in breach of data protection laws. Whatever your line of business, the growing threat of identity fraud means it is now more important than ever to destroy electronic equipment when you dispose of it.

Shredall SDS Group offers a complete WEEE (waste electrical and electronic equipment) destruction service. We can securely collect, shred and recycle all kinds of electronic waste, including hard drives, flash storage, memory cards and laptops.

Electronic media destruction

With the majority of businesses taking their practices online, it is also important to destroy confidential electronic media storage devices, including:

  • Digital drives
  • Flash drives (memory sticks)
  • SD cards
  • CDs & DVDs
  • Audio & video tapes.

A simple deletion on a digital drive is not enough to protect your company’s data from being retrieved and falling into the wrong hands. Completely destroying your digital drives will ensure your confidential information can't be obtained by identity thieves in the future.

How our media & IT destruction service works:

We arrange an ad-hoc collection or a schedule for regular collections if you require frequent IT and media destruction.

Our fully trained operatives arrive at your business premises, before transferring the unwanted IT equipment to our high-security MOD-approved vehicles.

The items are transferred to one of our high-security depots in Glasgow or Nottingham where they will be destroyed – the materials will then be recycled where possible.

Once the process is complete, we issue a certificate of destruction showing the weight and details of the collection. This is a minimum requirement for anyone disposing of electronic equipment.

All of the above is carried out as per BS EN 15713 or equivalent.

Recycle, don't reuse

Based on years of experience and expertise, we advise our customers against selling IT equipment or parts for reuse or refurbishment. Your electronic media can fall into the wrong hands quite easily, leaving your company's sensitive information vulnerable to theft. Shredding is the most robust method of media destruction, and the only way to guarantee your data is safe.

At the same time, we’re very mindful of our impact on the environment, and pledge to recycle all shredded or destroyed IT equipment where possible. Our target, which is in keeping with our ISO 14001 accreditation, is to recycle 100% of all non-contaminated waste.
