Free Computer Equipment Collection in and Around Berkshire
If you have surplus or unwanted IT equipment, we offer free collection in most cases and can recycle most types of IT gear without needing to dispose of, which we only ever do as a last resort.
Our first priority is to get any equipment you hand over to us wiped of any data that might remain to protect your security and abide by and respect the regulations of the EU and GDPR. Our secondary interest is in recycling as much as possible in order to reduce waste and pollution, and increase our own business with other computer users.
Our ITAD services appeal to large corporations as well as small SME customers and domestic users alike.

Recycling is more environmentally sound because it reduces hazardous waste, such as heavy metals and carcinogens, from entering the Earths's atmosphere or local landfills and waterways. Whilst electronics constitute a small fraction of all total waste generated, they contain substances that can often be far more hazardous.
Our policy of reselling as much as possible automatically off-sets as much waste as possible and allows us to offer free collections in lieu of what we can recover financially from material value. We have partners that specialise in different types of refurbished equipment such as servers, networking gear, routers, firewalls, Wi-Fi and data storage.
Waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) is one of the fastest growing waste streams in the EU, with a growth rate of some 3-5 % per year. WEEE concerns diverse substances that pose considerable environmental and health risks if not treated suitably, whilst the proper recycling of WEEE waste substantially increases availability of irreplaceable raw materials for future use.

Destroying your personal and commercial data
The Data Protection Act now requires that all information collected by your organisation and held on any media be destroyed when that media has become redundant.
Every organisation, and the individuals within those organisations, have a statutory duty of care of obligation to ensure that any confidential data held not be released in any unauthorised or accidental way, particularly that relating to employees or customers. This of course would include storage media such as USB flash disks or hard disk drives.

We will assume that all data needs to be cleaned from your hard drives or other storage devices prior to collection. However, if you have already erased all disks to your satisfaction, please do let us know so as not to waste time. We erase all disks to MOD standards and can provide certification if required and agreed in advance.
Hard drives contained in desktop or laptops will either be data erased, or as a last resort physically rendered inoperable before leaving our premises.
Data destruction of storage media in other devices, such as large printers, EPOS equipment, Sky boxes, etc, are also the responsibility of the customer, unless you would like us to do this for you, in which case this will incur a small charge for each item. This is simply because these devices are often very fiddly and time consuming to access.
Any hard disk that cannot be successfully wiped using this process is removed from the PC and physically destroyed beyond recoverability. This ensures complete data security and peace-of-mind for all of our clients. Hard disks carcases are then recycled for their rare Earth-Metal element resources.
All external inventory labels and markings are also removed both for security purposes and in readiness for resale.
