Data Centre Recycling and Decommissioning

When disposing of redundant equipment from a data centre it is vital that you use a secure and experienced supplier. The assets you retire will hold sensitive data, networking information and company information that needs destroying. Pure Planet Recycling understands these needs and offers a secure data centre recycling service.

We have vast experience in accessing all types of data centres in the UK. Our collection teams are security cleared, uniformed and reliable. We have a range of vehicle sizes to suit all access restrictions and loading requirements.

Data holding devices such as hard drives, tapes and networking equipment can be shredded on site. You can witness the destruction to ensure no data leaves site.

Our service is as simple as:

You contact us detailing the IT assets you have for disposal and the location of the data centre
We identify the best service options and quote accordingly
We arrange to collect the equipment using our own secure transportation and security cleared staff
Equipment is logged and loaded into the vehicles. Hard drives are shredded on site if required
We process the equipment at our licensed recycling facility. Equipment that can be reused is tested, otherwise it is stripped for materials
Once complete, we issue a recycling report and data destruction certificate

What data centre equipment can you recycle?

We can recycle all types of electrical waste, not just IT equipment. We can also purchase working equipment where we have permission to re-sell.
