Our staff will come on-site and not only remove all unwanted electronics, but will also ensure any device capable of storing data is tagged, quarantined and processed to ensure data confidentiality.
IT assets commonly hold large volumes of confidential data even if they are deleted or re-formatted. User details, software keys, credit card numbers, bank details, medical history and other classified data is often stored on computer systems inadvertently or intentionally. These can also make their way onto other media such as printers, copiers, flash memory and other media. This requires either mechanical destruction or specialised applications that write patterns of random meaningless data onto all of a hard drive's sectors multiple times.
Aspitech does not recycle or reprocess hazardous materials on-site all e-waste collected is first taken to a sorting area where it is assessed for the best management process where it is either dismantled or refurbished.
Dismantled parts, metal, CRTs, PCBs and plastic are sorted into different waste streams to be sent for safe re-processing with an environmentally responsible waste company who we have assessed to provide the best environmental outcome for our customers.

One: Increase the number of low-cost computers available in the community for students and those on low-incomes.
