How Do You dispose of electronic devices?

When disposing of electronic devices, be sure to follow your organization’s policies. If you are unsure, contact your local waste management facility for advice on how best to dispose of the item in question.

The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Directive (WEEE) states that you should dispose of all electrical equipment properly. Before disposing of any device, all useable parts need to be removed and the device is not left with anything inside.; anything left behind could pose a fire risk or cause environmental damage if it ends up in landfill. The WEEE also requires that all manufacturers give consumers information about how to take back old items and recycle them properly—so check our website for more details on these requirements!

In addition to WEEE rules concerning electronic waste disposal, there are also regulations regarding battery disposal which may differ depending on where you live: some locations have mandatory regulations requiring businesses/organizations like yours who use large amounts of batteries every day (such as security companies) pay fees per pound rather than per tonne; other areas do not require these fees at all!

What are you doing to ensure that our confidential waste is protected?

Protecting your confidential waste is the most important thing you can do. When a company has been approved by your data protection officer (DPO), they will provide a Certificate of Destruction. This verifies that all data has been destroyed in accordance with their policies and procedures, as well as government guidelines and regulations.

Ensure that a reputable shredding company is licensed or registered with either:

  • The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)

  • The Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA)

  • The National Association of Waste Disposal Contractors (NAWDC)

You should also ask for proof that the following requirements are met:

  • Shredding all documents within 14 days of collection is mandatory. This includes any storage devices such as hard drives or USB sticks. If any paper documents need to be kept longer than this period it must be agreed upon before disposal occurs.

  • Confirmation that there is an insurance policy covering them against any legal actions arising from destruction of personal information.

  • The company confirms that all documents being disposed of have been destroyed at its own facility using secure containers which are then transported by secure transport vehicles to ensure complete security throughout the process.
