Server Recycling & Decommissioning

With the ability to store vast quantities of information on a single hard drive, servers offer the potential to retain entire records for a corporation let alone it's associated client base.


Stringent control methods should be employed when retiring servers so that data is effectively destroyed.


Our service allows for the removal of and recycling of servers, whether from a small office or an entire data centre. We have the capacity to manage both.
