Data Center E-Waste Removal Service8
Data centers are homes to thousands and thousands of pounds if not tons of IT equipment. That equipment makes up the heart of so much IT infrastructure, but what only those in the data center business think about is just how many pounds of that IT equipment goes to waste every year, every month, and even every day. Hardware gets broken, grows out of date, or just gets replaced preventatively. Every piece of retired equipment needs to go somewhere, and that’s when businesses in that position have to look for a data center e-waste removal service.
What Should Data Centers Be Looking for in an E-Waste Removal Service?
Whether you are looking for a new e-waste service, trying to get through a backlog of retired equipment, or setting up an e-waste service for the first time, there are definitely a few things you should be aware of.
Data Destruction Services
E-waste is one thing, but you are also a DATA center which means you house potentially millions of gigabytes of sensitive data, perhaps more. You know as well as we do that this data can be dangerous if it’s subject to a breach and that a simple format is rarely enough to foil even a moderately skilled data thief who might find themselves in possession of your drives.
When you rely on an e-waste removal service, you want one that does things in-house, especially when it comes to data destruction and one that can provide all three types of data destruction: overwriting, degaussing, and physical destruction. Sadoff E-Recycling & Data Destruction can absolutely provide that.
When it comes to certifications there are a few you should be on the lookout for. You want a facility that has R2v3 certification for sure. This is an EPA-endorsed certification ensuring quality, transparency, and environmental and social responsibility. This certification also requires rigorous maintenance and annual renewal for further assurance.
Additionally, you want a facility that is an i-SIGMA member. This will ensure that they not only have the ability to destroy your data but have the know-how and will follow the procedures so that it is done properly every time.
If you work in the military sector at all or just want an extra layer of assurance, then you should also work with a facility that is ITAR registered. Additional certifications you should be on the lookout for include ISO 9001, ISO 14001, and ISO 45001.
Ideally, you want an e-recycling service that can handle not just your area but any area where you might have IT equipment or open a facility in the future. For this reason, the local option isn’t always the best. You want an e-recycler that can provide it’s services nationwide and perhaps even has multiple facilities. Both of which are true of Sadoff.
Bulk Material Handling Capability
As a data center, you are probably going to have more retired IT equipment than the average facility business or facility, and you need an e-recycling service that can keep up. This means large-scale freight capabilities, in-depth tracking and logistics, and the ability to handle and process bulk IT equipment. That’s exactly what Sadoff can do for you!
