Technology is improving so rapidly that most computers and laptops need replacing every few years. While investing in new equipment has its advantages, having so many unwanted computers lying around is not only harming the planet, but also the privacy of both individuals and businesses.
Rather than using an outdated computer or laptop, there’s a better way to avoid contributing to the production of e-waste. In addition to protecting you against data breaches, Shred-X’s computer/laptop recycling and destruction services can also help minimise your impact on the environment.
Why Destroy & Recycle Computers & Laptops?
If your computer or laptop has reached the end of its life, don’t just throw it away – ensuring the destruction of data and recycling the end product is a much safer option when it comes to these types of devices. Preventing your computer from ending up in landfill is the best way to ensure any data stored on its hard drive can’t be used against you.
There are also environmental benefits to consider – by choosing to recycle your old computers after data has been destroyed, you can help limit the demand on materials needed to produce new electronic items. Even if they can’t be used to make other electronics, many of the components found in computers and laptops can be recycled into new products.
Where to Dispose of Old Computers and Laptops
No matter how cluttered your home or office is, never discard your old computers and laptops in general waste streams. With no way of knowing where they might end up, your private information could be dangerously exposed.
By choosing to use Shred-X, you won’t have to worry about where to dispose of your old laptops and computers. Instead of lugging bulky electronic equipment around town, we can collect any items you no longer need in one of our security-vetted vehicles.
We know computers and laptops aren’t the only items that regularly need replacing. To meet all your e-waste disposal needs, Shred-X also destroys the following products:
- USB devices
- Computer monitors
- Computer accessories (such as keyboards)
- Hard drives
- Network equipment (such as modems and routers)
- Fax machines
No matter what kind of electronic device you need to dispose of, we can handle it. Shred-X also provide degaussing services for magnetic media. Using magnetic waves, degaussing destroys any data on the device, making them safe to recycle.
