Material received at this facility is completely demanufactured and, to ensure data security, is not refurbished or reused. Demanufacturing, or disassembling, involves manually breaking down equipment into its separate components prior to shredding or recycling.
The Electronic Demanufacturing Facility is equipped with state-of-the-art data security equipment to ensure that sensitive or confidential information is not compromised. From the moment the material arrives at the facility, it is tracked using a barcode system and security cameras. Once demanufactured, hard drives are kept in a locked cage until they are shredded. Customers desiring priority data protection can pay a special handling fee to obtain copies of video from surveillance cameras, tracking reports and certificates of destruction.
