Once returned to our facility, equipment is segregated into non-hazardous and hazardous WEEE. Equipment is further segregated into data baring and non-data baring.
Every item of equipment is allocated its own unique CDL asset number to facilitate future audit trails. Equipment make, model, serial number, customer asset number and specification are recorded and uploaded into the asset report.
Data baring equipment is processed accordingly and all hard drives are data erased and/or destroyed as appropriate with appropriate certification uploaded into the customer asset report. All other media is physically destroyed.
Under the WEEE Directive we will aim to reuse equipment wherever possible. Equipment that cannot be remarketed is stripped at CDL with metals, plastics etc segregated for recycling and reuse in recycled products. CDL has always guaranteed 0% landfill.
