It’s time for a major IT overhaul in your company. So the question is what will you do with all of the IT equipment including the computers, servers, and other IT assets? When considering IT disposal or computer hardware disposal, there are many things to consider including PC recycling and data destruction.
When an IT liquidation is going to take place, PC recycling must be considered. In order to take care of PC recycling properly an IT Asset Disposal firm should be contacted. This IT Asset Disposition firm, otherwise known as an ITAD, can take care of your IT equipment disposal, from computer equipment disposal to server disposal, to data center disposal and the list goes on. And not only can they take care of hauling away the equipment for you, possibly providing you money depending on the current value of the equipment, they can also take care of the recycling including the PC recycling itself. So by calling an ITAD there will be one agenda item off of your plate and you will be able to focus on the new equipment coming into your company.Although there are in fact two choices, really only one is a prudent choice – to the call the IT Asset Disposition firm, also known as an ITAD. There are several reasons for this.
One other matter to consider is, when you are liquidating PCs, you many times will be liquidating the hard drives as well – this is where data destruction comes into play. Most likely your company has confidential information on those hard drives. Unfortunately there are criminals who would love to get their hands on this information. Since this is the case, hard drive destruction is a very valid option when disposing of hard drives. As far as the information itself, hard drive destruction, or hard drive shredding is one way to go. The other possibility is having the ITAD perform a hard drive wiping service on your hard drives, deleting the information on the hard drives thereby rendering the information on those drives inaccessible.
Calling an IT Asset Disposition is one of the first steps that should be taken when an IT liquidation is going to take place. By doing this, you can ease your mind knowing that your IT disposal will be handled smoothly. Not only will this firm handle the data destruction for you, but will also handle the PC recycling which is something that is very important to everyone and to the environment.
