Environment-friendly Business Solutions
E-waste can be defined as obsolete electronic devices or components and materials. It is important that the disposal of such objects is managed responsibly and that they are kept out of landfills as it often contains hazardous substances which harm our environment. In the situation of equipment being deemed unfit for re-use, we arrange for it to undergo dismantling in preparation for delivery to our ISO-certified downstream recyclers for further recycling. Our e-waste management service is an end-to-end process and can be tailored to your business requirements.

Data Destruction Services
Data destruction refers to deletion or removal of files to a point where the originating system that created the data cannot obtain a method of reading the information, however, the potential for the data to be retrieved through recovery services still remains. It is performed typically by a method of formatting or removing directions to a file instead of removing the file itself. In summary, simple data destruction leaves data vulnerable to retrieval, however it may be suitable for cases in which the data is not particularly valuable or confidential.
Physical Destruction or Degaussing
This method involves destroying the media or equipment which stores the data. It will damage the device so that it becomes totally unusable through the use of a mechanical shredder for devices such as smartphones, external hard drives and even laptops. It can also be performed via a degaussing method which involves demagnetizing the hard drive of any given device. While this does destroy the majority of the data as the originating device has been destroyed, it does not guarantee that all data has also been destroyed entirely and is safe from retrieval. This is certainly the case with Solid-state drives (SSD’s) as data can still remain on shredded pieces as small as 2mm and their integrated circuits are not affected by degaussing. As always, it is important to consider each individual circumstance and requirement when choosing the correct method of data wiping which our specialised team are ready to assist with.
Complete erasure of stored data on various forms of electronic media is crucial to protecting valuable information and to avoid sensitive information from being accessed - especially during the current prevalence of cybercrime worldwide. Data sanitization is a critical step in the process of data erasure to ensure all information is securely removed and the potential for the data being accessed or used is eliminated completely. Simply deleting files is not sufficient as the information remains stored within the hard drive or memory of the device and this forms the potential for unauthorized recovery of data and privacy as well as security breaches. Sanitization differs from Data destruction in that it includes verification, confirming that the device contains no remaining usable data. It is performed by overwriting current data permanently and irreversibly with no chance over recovery by a specialised software-based program replacing data with values of zero’s, ones or even random characters for a number of passes. At ITC Asset Management, we use the method DoD 5220.22-M which was developed by the US Department of Defense.
Processing & Sorting
Through our collection as well as recycling and rebate program, we often deal with e-waste that is not suitable for reuse. As a result, it undergoes thorough sorting by our highly qualified team to identify any parts which may be salvageable in order to avoid a higher contribution to the worldwide precedent of increasing e-scrap in landfill. Sustainability is always at our forefront. Materials that we sort include items such as; plastics, aluminium, metals, copper and rubber which are each sent to different recyclers. After collection of your equipment, the fleet is processed and categorised, we then supply a complete report of our evaluation for your records.
