Computer Disposal for Thetford

The disposal of waste in the UK requires the production of a Controlled waste transfer note. A Hazardous Waste Consignment note is also required for any waste deemed hazardous as a result of applying Annex I, II and III of the 2005 directive. Computer waste is no exception to this rule, even though it falls under separate Producer regulations (Waste Electrical and Electronic Regulations). However, it is important to note that the original EU Directive (WEEE Directive), transposed into UK law as a regulation, calls for separate collection as a pre-requisite to successful recovery of materials from the waste stream.


Our operations are backed by personnel who fully understand and retain suitable qualifications in the field of wastes, specializing wholly in the recycling of obsolete computer & telecoms hardware. We provide a service to Businesses, Schools and Local Government in Thetford, from our offices and treatment facility, all based on the border of Cambs and Norfolk. Our facility is licensed as a waste management facility for the sole purpose of recycling category 3 WEEE (Computers and Telecoms) and holds a "section 23" Permit, allowing for the disassembly, fragmentizing, shredding, shearing and baling of recovered components. We provide a collection & transportation service for your wastes and issue all paperwork at the time of collection.

Data Security for your IT

We provide a security conscious recycling solution for redundant Computer Hardware. Incorporating the latest British Standards, we maintain a strict control process that ensures destruction of data within 24 hours of collection from a clients premises. The provision of a full waste management license allows us to incorporate both Disk Overwrite and Physical (mechanical) destruction services:

  • Binary wiping of Hard Disk Drives to US (NIST) & UK (CESG).
  • Manual recovery of hard drives and shredding of the data storage parts.
  • Shredding of Tapes (Magnetic media)
  • Granulating Optical media (CDs & DVDs) and solid state media (USB memory sticks etc) to 5mm

Our stringent control processes incorporate a full certification process that "asset tracks" your storage media. We segregate any media from the your equipment upon arrival at our facility and "bar code" scan the serial numbers into spreadsheets. Upon completion of the data wiping process-and ultimately the contract-, we issue these certificates to you as evidence of destruction.
