Audit trail of your assets

We understand the importance of keeping a detailed record of your equipment, and it’s just as vital to keep track of it during the disposal process.

On the day of your collection, you will receive a Duty of Care Waste Transfer Note (DOC). Once your e-waste has been collected, each item will be booked into our database with a unique reference number assigned to it; this allows us to track the items throughout the recycling process.

If requested, you will receive an Asset Inventory Sheet (AIS) listing all of the items we collected from you, and a Certificate of Data Destruction (COD) for all your goods containing data (within 28 days of collection).

Secure data destruction

We understand the importance of secure data. That’s why we sanity-check all devices upon arrival. Any drives containing data are removed from your machines and stored in a secure location for erasure.

Our premises are alarmed and protected by 24-hour CCTV coverage. Data is locked in secure containers inside the building. All assets are documented and audited upon collection; copies of which are sent to the customer.

All data is securely erased onsite, this is done in our specialist data centre. We use a 2-stage process with a 100% pass process. Any data failures are physically destroyed on-site using data punching and crushing machines; these parts are then dismantled and sent for metal refinement.

We can provide a Certificate of Data Destruction (COD) for all your data-containing assets when requested. This will be available to you from 28 working days after your collection.

UK network this is a total no-brainer. WEEE ‘waste’ and security wipes can cost a small fortune to deal with. Green Machine Computers Ltd solve this and do tons of good. I am endorsing just as a previous very satisfied customer

always helpful, and fits in with my desire to recycle anything recylable!

With one hour of notice and three hours to go before we had to vacate a building these chaps turned up and cleared way over a tonne of computing detritus – but the real surprise was the fast follow-up with the documentation. Bravo!
