It’s a shame how quickly something of value can magically transform itself into nothing short of landfill fodder. In the world of IT liquidation, waiting can be very costly. The reason? Technology moves fast. When the new becomes obsolete, the not so new loses its value very quickly. It’s never a good idea to wait to recycle IT technology you’re no longer using.
You need to be doing more than merely selling
Make sure you’re selling your IT equipment and not the information that equipment contains. By doing that, you’re practicing data security as much as IT liquidation. If you’d shred your documents before throwing them away, why wouldn’t you do the same with your technology? The best way to ensure that your data is properly disposed of is to find an IT recycling partner that is R2 certified. Here’s why.
All R2 certified recyclers are required to sanitize, purge, or destroy data on all hard drives and data storage devices. Data destruction processes are reviewed and validated by an independent party periodically. R2 recyclers are required to have a security program in place that is appropriate for the equipment they handle and the customers they serve. So when you partner with a R2 certified company, you know that your data will be securely liquidated.
