Hard drive wiping using government and CESG approved data wiping software Kroll Ontrack 3.0, both higher and lower level (IS5).

  • What is a Social Enterprise?
    The answer to this can be found on our ‘social enterprise’ page
  • Why does it cost us to dispose of computers
    As a not-for-profit social enterprise, our aim is not to make lots of money but to help the disadvantaged through employment opportunities and by giving back to the community. However, a collection of IT equipment involves many man-hours, both to collect and in the workshop (destroying your data and refurbishing/recycling). There are also material costs, ie. petrol, data-destruction software, licenses etc. We try to limit our costs to time and materials only and why we are the cheapest around.
  • What happens to the equipment?
    Please see our ‘Reuse & recycling’ page
  • What is Reuse?
    Reuse means that the equipment undergoes data destruction and has identification marks removed. This equipment is then either used internally (to provide training or support our digital inclusion programmes) or is remarketed.
  • What is Recycling?
    When equipment is deemed to be no longer usable it is broken up into its constituent parts and introduced into material recycling programmes to recover the various basic raw materials, plastics, metals etc.
  • What is Refurbishment?
    Refurbishment is an intermediate step between reuse and recycling. The equipment is subjected to some minor repair and cleaning to either mend it or upgrade its capability and is then either used internally or remarketed.
