Most organisations have large quantities of highly sensitive data stored on their IT equipment. It is essential to keep this information safe and secure once the apparatus reaches the end of its life. The worry of confidential information getting into the wrong hands, and the fear of the consequential damage to reputation and finances, often leads to old, unwanted IT equipment being ‘stockpiled’, taking up much-needed storage space. CAS can help, we offer advanced and secure IT data disposal services.

Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Recycling (WEEE)

Recycling of WEEE is a specialist part of the waste and recycling industry. It is a rapidly growing sub-sector due mainly to the implementation of the original WEEE Directive in the UK by the WEEE Regulations 2006, with that came the associated requirements for the recovery, reuse, recycling and treatment of WEEE.

Our WEEE compliant IT removal and disposal service include:

  • Collection of your IT equipment from your company location.
  • Cataloguing of all removed equipment and provision of an asset list and transfer note.
  • Secure disposal of digital and magnetic media guarantees devices cannot be read or retrieved.
  • A certificate of data destruction.

Using the latest technology, we shred your old or unwanted data storage devices into tiny particles that make data recovery impossible. Devices include hard drives and magnetic media including tapes, optical media (CDs/DVDs, Blu-ray), credit and identity cards, USB sticks, mobile phones and PDAs. Our simple pricing structure — we charge by the kilogram — helps make life easy particularly where there is a mix of different IT equipment.
