DATA SECURITY

Valuable corporate data will not be compromised.

To ensure the security of data-bearing assets picked up at your location, a receiving audit is conducted by Compugen to confirm that what was received matches what was shipped.

U.S. Department of Defense data-erasure standards are used to thoroughly ‘sanitize’ all disk drives, eliminating the possibility of sensitive data making into the wrong hands.

Any disk drives that fail to operate correctly or fail the erasure process are crushed, and a Certificate of Destruction issued, clearing the donor organization of any further responsibility.

ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION

100% of hardware is recycled – zero goes to landfill!

Our best in class recycling process is performed by ISO 14001 certified specialty recycling partners picked based on their proven ability to handle various aspects of disassembly, disposal and destruction.

All incoming equipment is inventoried, bar-coded and recorded in a database for continuous tracking throughout the recycling process.

  1. Equipment is manually disassembled so that all hazardous materials and components can be removed for special handling;
  2. Three different shredders and a system of separators produce four distinct commodities or “fines” – steel, aluminum, copper/plastics and other metals;
  3. The resulting bins of metal fines are re-smelted and refined to yield raw materials for new products;
  4. Dust created during processing is captured, reprocessed for further metal recovery and bagged; air is filtered before being released into the atmosphere. Nothing goes to landfill.
