Here at Stone, one of our main values is sustainability.
We firmly believe in reusing devices wherever possible and that’s why we invest heavily in our ITAD services and facilities, ensuring your retired electronics are recycled safely and securely in a GDPR compliant way.
Removing hard drives beforehand could put your data at risk
Protecting your data has never been more important. When disposing of obsolete devices, removing the hard drive and attempting to destroy it yourself can be bad for the environment, and doesn’t guarantee complete data destruction. This means any remaining data left on the devices could be at risk of being recovered by unauthorised parties.
Instead, you should look to recycle with a trustworthy vendor with who you can be confident will securely erase all your important data.
We ensure your data is completely wiped before recycling
At Stone, All of our ITAD services are carried out onsite in our award-winning recycling facility which is fully ADISA accredited with distinction.
