At Green It Disposal we offer additional services beyond just computer recycling to further assist our customer's aims in meeting data protection obligations and regulations.
Data storage products do not just fall under PC’s, laptops and servers. CCTV recording units, door access controllers and mobile phone are all examples of alternative data storage items.
At Green IT Disposal, we ensure all data is legally and responsibly processed to ensure eradication prior to ethical disposal.
CCTV surveillance has become a common feature of modern life. With an estimated four million CCTV cameras in the UK, we are caught on numerous CCTV screens as we move around our towns and cities, visit shops and offices, and travel on the road and other parts of the public transport network.
In today’s world most organisations have some form of CCTV system installed for protecting the public, staff and company assets.
These systems will contain some form of recordable media - from the VHS video tapes, usually containing 24 hours of recording, to the latest hard disk drive storage systems containing months of recorded footage.
Where images of living, identifiable individuals are deliberately recorded, this is likely to comprise those individuals’ personal data. The collection, use and storage of personal data are governed by the Data Protection Act 1998.
Green IT Disposal can fulfil your legal obligations when equipment is deemed redundant by ensuring all forms of media are degaussed and physically destroyed on our secure site and includes full reporting and a certificate of data destruction.
On Site Data Erasure
For highly sensitive data, Green IT Disposal offers an on-site hard drive degaussing service, enabling our customers to witness their drives being destroyed on their own premises, prior to final recycling.
Our portable degaussing unit is CESG approved. The SV91M is fast, taking as little as three seconds to completely erase drives or media tapes. It’s simple to use and provides a thoroughly effective and low cost means of degaussing DLT and DAT tapes.
It is also suitable for erasing PC hard drives for security purposes and the SV91M is particularly recommended for erasing defective or damaged drives where other types of erasing may not be effective.
Offering an audited, secure & efficient data destruction and recycling service.
