Our IT Recycling Process

Green Machine Computers collect IT equipment from sites all across the UK. We will come to your site or office premises, gather all your unwanted IT equipment, and conduct a full audit of everything collected, we then complete a comprehensive data wipe/destroy all data.

Green Machine's recycling process

Secure Data Destruction  Our premises are alarmed and protected by 24/7 CCTV and all areas are monitored. Data is locked in secure containers inside the building. All items are documented and audited upon collection, copies of which are sent to the customer. All data is securely destroyed onsite, this is done in our specialist data centre and we use a 2 stage process with a 100% pass process. We also provide certification of data destruction when requested. Any data failures are physically destroyed on site using data punching and crushing machines, these parts are then dismantled and sent for metal refinement.

Carbon Footprint Reduction We reduce the carbon footprint of all of our customers because we reuse the equipment and increase the lifespan of the tech we collect.  For example, for every laptop we reuse and recycle, we are saving the planet up to180KG of Co2 emissions.

Audit Trail Upon collection completion, you will receive a Duty of Care Waste Transfer Note (DOC) – when the collection is performed. Within 7 days you should also receive an Asset Inventory Sheet (AIS) listing all the items we collected from you. If requested, within 28 days you should receive a Certificate of Data Destruction (COD) for all your goods containing data.
