WHY DO BUSINESSES Need an Electronic Recycling Service?
IT hardware and telecoms equipment can contain toxic materials and are regarded as hazardous waste. The UK Government has specific legislation regarding the destruction and recycling of electronic equipment (WEEE) which businesses must adhere to. These are legal obligations for any business.
Businesses must take steps to show their compliance with the IDIA – The UK governmental body for data recycling and the GDPR – data protection law.
Why Do Businesses Need Secure Data Erasure?
Data protection should naturally be a concern for businesses. Your business could be under serious risk if your confidential client data were accessible. This is why our IT security services are in such high demand, but business often forget to consider data protection when it comes to old IT equipment and the disposal of that equipment.

This can be difficult for businesses to carry out themselves as it requires proof of appropriate data removal with a data destruction certificate. Pescado will provide all businesses who use our electronic recycling services with a compliant and recognised data destruction certificate.
