Is the Future Looking Good with Computer Recycling?

By Chris Keenan

Published 03/11/2021

The modern world is filled with wonder, we are entering a time of spectacular innovation in Information Technology. Today’s computers unite us globally like never before. Freeing us to advance the sciences, cure illnesses and work together to accomplish our goals. Today we can work from any place, at any time we choose. Free to conduct business on our terms. These amazing advancements in Information Technology can even be powered by renewable energy sources, such as, solar, wind & hydroelectrical energy.

However, as with most utopian ideas there’s an unspoken dark side, hidden in plain sight. Nature is destroyed, air is polluted and wars are fought over the resources needed to manufacture our computers, phones and other such devices. Furthermore, as this computer equipment becomes obsolete or broken it is dumped indiscriminately in 3rd world countries to fester and poison. Even here, in the 1st World - trillions of tons of e-waste has been dumped in Landfill sites, polluting our water and the food chain we need to survive.

Problems are compounded yet further when data is recovered from dumped I.T. hardware by those with unscrupulous and immoral agendas. So grave are these problems that e-waste and data protection laws have been written to prosecute those companies failing to dispose of their IT hardware correctly. Prosecution can result in vast fines and even imprisonment.

Computer equipment needs to be disposed of legally, especially items such as smartphones, laptops, desktops and computer servers. Legally compliant computer disposal for Banking, or for accounting firms, insurance companies and just about any other business in the financial services sector is vitally important. All banking, insurance or accounting computers being retired / decommissioned must be recycled by a fully certified (e.g. R2 certified) computer recycling company. A certified computer disposal service must include data destruction (hard drive shredding or wiping). Retired computer equipment from the banking, accounting, insurance and financial sectors can contain highly sensitive data that could result in breeching several data protection laws if the computer hardware is not disposed of correctly. For help with the legal disposal and recycling of financial sector IT hardware (e.g. banking computers, accounting desktops and servers, insurance IT hardware) please contact the YBC IT asset disposition and computer recycling team.


Who specializes in computer disposal for the healthcare industry?

Computer and IT hardware disposal services for the healthcare industry are subject to both e-waste and data protection laws. The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) is the most commonly known ruling effecting the disposal of old medical laptops, used hospital administrative computers and decommissioned servers used to store medical data. However, there are many other laws, acts and regulations that also need to be complied with when recycling decommissioned medical computers and IT hardware. The YBC ITAD and computer disposal program specializes in the secure, legal and environmentally friendly disposal of all healthcare computer equipment. To learn more please contact the YBC ITAD computer disposal and data destruction team.

How do I wipe hard drives before recycling?

If you just have one or two hard drives then ideally you can just use a really good data wiping software tool, just make sure you run at least 7 overwrites. Be prepared to wait hours and hours though, especially if your hard drives carry TBs of data. If you have more than 1 or 2 hard drives and you don’t want to wait forever then call the YBC ITAD data destruction team, their service provides onsite shredding or offsite hard drive data destruction services that will save you time, money and ensure you have legal certification that proves your hard drives were disposed of correctly.
