Confidential data recycling is a big deal. Hard drives and IT equipment store sensitive information that can only be destroyed using specialist technology.

Our secure facility does just that by shredding it, then extracting precious and non-precious metals.

Store your hard drives in our locking QR-coded boxes and pick up the phone for a DBS collection.

Our trusted confidential data shredding services include:

  • certificate of destruction
  • QR code scanning for secure tracking
  • no minimum collection
  • CCTV monitored and GPS-tracked fleets
  • all materials are fully recycled
  • secure, monitored facility

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

As soon as you require our Birmingham or London confidential data recycling services, store your hard drives and any other IT equipment in one of our locking QR-coded boxes, and pick up the phone to our expert team to arrange a DBS collection. This way your recycling can be tracked and monitored in our automatic-lock vehicles for increased safety and peace of mind.

After collection, the items are shredded and all material is separated - the likes of steel, aluminium and any other precious metals like gold and silver. That's also when shredded plastics and rubbers are also removed. Each material is then sorted and sent to recycling.

Don’t get caught out and ensure that you recycle confidential data correctly with First Mile. This will remove the risk of data being stolen and your business suffering from a serious data breach.

Ensure you and your business are being GDPR-compliant with confidential data shredding and recycling from First Mile. For peace of mind, you’ll also receive a certificate of destruction for each confidential data recycling box collected.
