IT asset compliance is not just for attorneys. They may make the rules but you are responsible for following them. Not all decommissioned assets can be redeployed or resold. For the ones that can’t, MDSi can help.
Certified disposal means getting it right every time. MDSi’s first objective is to make sure you maximize the use or value of your IT assets whenever possible. When the end of the road is clear, it is essential that you can count on a partner that employs compliance tracking from beginning to end. Accept nothing less than the highest standards, tools, and certifications to back them up.
Getting disposition wrong has a cost. Removing asset tags, erasing data, tracking downstream recycling processes are a must. The cost of getting these wrong will result in fines, lost reputations, lost customers, and lost jobs.
Certified Hardware Recycling
A key part of IT asset disposal is certified recycling. We work closely with certified recycling companies that have the experience and knowledge to properly disassemble and recycle the individual components of your decommissioned equipment. Different types, models and generations of IT storage hardware require different handling methods due to their varying construction, components and materials.
Due to the complexity of modern IT servers and hardware, certified recycling is an involved process that includes separating reusable / resalable components (such as power sources), toxic or dangerous materials (such as lithium and electronic components) and generally recyclable materials (such as steel, aluminum and plastic).
These different materials are then treated according to the rules and regulations in place for the certified recycling of hardware. The end result is a safe and environmentally respectable disposal of your decommissioned IT servers and other hardware. Once completed, you have the guarantee that your equipment was disposed of correctly, according to all legal requirements.
MDSi invests in you by investing in the right processes. We not only follow R2 (Responsible Recycling) processes, we improve upon them by integrating and simplifying the disposition process via our Partner Activity Coordination Tool (PACT) solution. Disposition is made easy through one interface with full visibility and full compliance as a result.
IT hardware disposal mistakes can happen when you try to handle it on your own. The potential risks to your business are too great to consider attempting disposal other than through the proper channels. We have the training, experience and knowledge of the legal requirements for certified hardware recycling to take care of all your retired servers and storage equipment, including old, outdated equipment that has been stored for years.
Contact our team today and we’ll work with you to determine the best hardware disposal services adapted to the type and quantity of equipment you have. Where possible, we’ll help you extract any remaining value in your IT hardware and proceed with safe, responsible recycling of the rest. You’ll not only be sure that we’ve performed proper decommissioning and destruction of your precious IT data, but you’ll also have the reassurance that we’ve reduced the environmental and safety impact of your hardware disposal.
Let MDSi show you how easy asset disposition can be.
