Our free asset recovery and data wiping services give office equipment a new lease of life while raising vital funds

Could your IT equipment help us save lives?

Get In Touch

When it comes to office equipment, many organisations have unused computers that could actually help raise vital funds for a charity such as ours.

One of our newest initiatives offers asset recovery and data wiping for organisations looking to clear out unwanted equipment that can then be resold, reducing the volume that could end up in a landfill.

Using the Blancco data wipe system, we ensure that all items containing data (laptops, P.C’s, mobile phones) have all traces of confidential items removed and restored to factory settings ready for resale. Following the cleansing process, you will receive a complete certification to confirm the data erasure process is complete.

Free of Charge Data Wiping and Recycling Services

It’s no secret that IT equipment is not as easy to dispose of as household items. Due to the manufacturing of this equipment,  high-saturated chemicals and plastics are used which are highly unstable, which, when dumped into a landfill, can break and become a hazard to local residents and workers. Fortunately, we’re able to recycle to the highest standards, giving your company full reassurance that you have recycled responsibly.

Most recyclers will charge for this service but we are offering to collect, wipe and give full reports completely free of charge. In addition to this, the data wi[ing software we use is called Blancco and is the same software used by the Ministry of Defence, leaving you to relax in the knowledge you’re items are erased to the highest level whilst saving your business money.

Cherwell Laboratories was very happy to recently support The Air Ambulance Service by asking them to dispose of some of our redundant PC equipment. Whilst we have used other disposal services previously, been able to assist the fantastic work of the air ambulance this time was certainly a deciding factor in our selection.
