Hard drive recycling

Hard drives and other IT equipment should be stripped of sensitive information before being securely recycled or disposed of. We offer GDPR compliant IT asset disposal services for laptops, servers, computers, phones and more.

We use Blancco, the market-leading data sanitisation platform, for complete and secure data erasure during the hard drive disposal process. For any items where data wiping is not applicable, we shred them in our secure BS EN 15713 accredited facility.

Data destruction services

Certificates of destruction are provided for all our data destruction services and IT asset disposal services. To enhance sustainability we reuse or recycle items and materials where possible.

Whether it’s just one item or multiple items, we have a secure data and IT asset disposal solution that will suit your business requirements.

Have important documents to dispose of as well? We also offer confidential paper recycling services.

Hard drive disposal service

Everything from printers, photocopiers and CCTV systems have a hard drive that needs to be disposed of correctly using a confidential data recycling erasure service.

Our London, Birmingham and UK wide secure IT asset disposal services are available for single or multiple items. You can store your hard drives and any other IT equipment in one of our locking QR-coded boxes, or just ring us up for a next-day secure collection for both hard drive recycling and Hard drive disposal services.

Our confidential data destruction process

The items are stripped of confidential information after they have been collected as part of the confidential data destruction process. Where reuse is not an option, they are shredded and all material is separated. Metals including steel, aluminium, gold and silver are separated for recycling alongside plastics and rubbers.

Ensure that your business is GDPR compliant by recycling your confidential data correctly with First Mile. This will remove the risk of data being stolen and your business suffering from a serious data breach.

For peace of mind, you’ll also receive a certificate of destruction once the box has been collected and your IT items have been securely disposed of and wiped.

First Mile's WEEE recycling is perfect for general e-waste, with our business recycling services capable of handling even the toughest waste.
