Greater Manchester is a huge area producing large amounts of old IT Equipment. With IT infrastructure changeovers happening more regularly, more is being produced. You will have most likely been paying for your disposals up until now. We, Revive IT can provide a complete all inclusive collection and data secure service free.
Most organisations in the Manchester area produce well over 500KG per annum which is approximately 30 CRT monitors. It is a legal requirement to get your site registered if you produce this amount of more per year. This allows the government to keep a track of where everything is coming from.
We are based in Leeds and our computer disposal Manchester service covers the whole of Cheshire. We do collect from any location around the UK though providing there is enough to make it viable. Usually over 10 items is sufficient. We process any collections as fast as possible. Usually the following day to ensure no back log is created. The faster your data is processed, the better. We aim to minimise the security risk of taking your data offsite.
Most people think just deleting files on a computer is the solution to destroy data but that does nothing. There are many software platforms readily available that would let you recover it. The only way to permanently destroy data, without physically destroying the hard disk, is by multiple overwriting of the data by generating and recording random characters across the entire surface of the drive, resulting in all data being destroyed and file sizes reset to zero. We use the latest versions of this software on all hard drives initially, which meets both US Military and UK Government Restricted standards. We have this software set up on over 25 machines that run 18 hours per day.
If you are based in Manchester and simply don’t have enough to make a collection worthwhile for us, just let us know what you need recycling and we can rig together a quote for you.
