Recycling Servers and Server Equipment
We accept all types of servers and IT equipment no matter what their purposes was; applications, catalogs, communications, computing, databases, faxes, files, gaming, mail, media, print, proxies, and the web. All servers typically have associated hardware that can be recycled or reused after decommissioning. Server Hardware we recycle from servers include towers, racks, disks, RAM, CPU’s, hard drives, cables and more.
IT Server Recycling and Server Decommissioning
We know how difficult the process is to upgrade IT equipment, especially when it comes to disposing of decommissioned servers. Fortunately, California Electronics Recycler can make the exchange process efficient when you decide to dispose and recycle your Servers. When we dispose of decommissioned servers we will eliminate all data to best protect your business and confidential information. Upon Data Destruction of your Servers we can provide you a Certificate of Data Destruction for added security measures. After the data is destroyed, California Electronics Recycler will recycle the Servers by re-purposing them or scrapping them with one of our certified R2 downstream vendors.
We have a few techniques to handle and destroy the data that is left on your IT servers. The first technique we consider for data destruction is through our Professional DoD compliant software. Through Data Wiping we completely wipe your data clean from your servers’ data storage devices for good. Your data is irrecoverable, untraceable, and completely destroyed, PERIOD.
For added security measures we can destroy your data through our Degaussing Machine. This process removes the data by demagnetizing the memory from the iron oxide or chromium dioxide which eliminates your data through randomizing the recorded data pattern. If requested, we can physically destroy the data with our 4 ton hydraulic press where it will be crushed, thus splitting the data disks completely and the device will no longer be functional. All of our data destruction processes are DoD compliant and we guarantee that your data will be securely destroyed and disposed of properly.
Why should you recycle your decommissioned servers?
Servers are big and bulky, taking up a lot of space, which is not good for landfills. They typically contain large amounts of data of confidential and sensitive information. If the servers’ data is not destroyed properly and it fell in the wrong hands your information could be at risk. Servers contain valuable metals and materials that need to be recycled to reduce the amount of energy that comes with mining and producing new products. They have materials that are toxic for the environment if they are disposed of improperly. Through recycling you make a difference today that helps shape our future.
Risks of Improper Disposal of IT Servers
