Computer Disposal for Sheffield. Secure Recycling Service

Sheffield, South Yorkshire

In 2007, the EU's WEEE Directive was transposed into UK law. The UK's interpretation of this directive incorporates regulation that prohibits the disposal of IT related equipment in the general waste stream and requires the use of suitably lisensed operators in it's recycling. Further revision to the Waste Management licensing system in 2008 gave rise to a two tier system, with a lower tier "Exempt" license and an upper tier Permitted (formerly waste management) license. However, the lower tier "T11" exemption was introduced with a view to allowing the repair and refurbishement of Electrical and Elecrtronic equipment. Unlike the Upper tier License, it excludes the recovery of many hazardous wastes and prohibited mechanical recovery and destruction processes.


Operating from an Upper tier Permitted (Waste Management) facility, IT-Green® provides a professional, highly experienced solution to the disposal of Obsolete and Faulty IT hardware that is backed by WAMITAB NVQ qualified personnel.

Secure removal of Data from Media

secure computer data

Legislation incorporating the Environment Protection Act(1), Environmental Permitting regulations(2), Hazardous waste regulations(3) and WEEE directive limit disposal routes to professionals licensed for transportation and treatment of electronic waste. However, the disposal of Data bearing media gives rise to new security issues that extend beyond Environmental Legislation.


Backed by processes designed to BS EN 15713 (2009)(4), IT-Green offers Sheffield Businesses a highly secure recycling service for redundant Computer Hardware. Our solutions include the management of data security from point of collection to receipt at our treatment facility, destruction and reporting. The inclusion of a Permitted facility allows us to operate shredding, granulating and shearing operations to mechanically destroy Hard Drives, Tapes and Optical Disks. However, not all media needs to be physically destroyed and we offer a software driven Data Destruction service that operates in accordance with the UK's CPNI guideline and US's NIST SP800-88. Developed to treat many drives at once, we seperate your media, wipe it in our Array of servers and certify it, all within 24 hours of collection. If a drive fails this process, it's automatically shredded, mitigating any risks.
