Here is a Step-by-step Guide for IT Recycling and Data Disposal with Stone:
Step 1. Customers book a collection through our online form.
Step 2. We provide a date for the collection which is FREE of service when there are more than 25 pieces of equipment.
Step 3. We collect the equipment in one of our maximum security and GPS-tracked vans, by a security-cleared Stone driver.
Step 4. The paper trail starts at the point of pick up with the driver and stays with the collection until completion (all of which is completely traceable – tracked, full reporting/audits, certificates of disposal).
Step 5. The assets arrive at Stone’s recycling facility on the same day as collection.
Step 6. All hard drives are wiped using industry-leading data erasure software – Blancco. This software isn’t just GDPR compliant but uses the same standard of data wiping as the Ministry of Defence.
Step 7. If the equipment is end-of-life or beyond saving, it is correctly and sustainably recycled with absolutely zero waste going to landfill, and the customer receives all certificates of disposal and reporting etc.
Step 8. If the devices are in working order, these are cleaned and graded by qualified, vendor-certified technicians who professionally refurbish the devices to the highest quality.
Step 9. Refurbished devices all come with a certificate of genuine authenticity, which is sent to the customer.
Step 10. We also provide our customers with residual value of the kit in the form of rebates. After our customers receive their certification they claim their rebates on their recycled assets.
