Doing What’s Right, Because it’s Right

Our industry is known as ITAD—or IT Asset Disposition—which is the disposal of obsolete or unwanted technology equipment.

When it comes to disposing of older IT equipment, the two most important concerns are data security and environmental impact. However, not all ITAD companies are created equal. At TechReset, we aim to deliver the greatest possible good for the environment while keeping your confidential information safe. We do this by following ITAD industry policies and best practices.

It’s essential to ensure you’re working with a provider that provides the latest in ITAD policy and certifications. Below are the key features to look for when it comes to environmentally-safe e-waste disposal.

Environmental Certifications

The ITAD industry’s top environmental policies serve to prevent environmental contamination and ensure the proper management of IT equipment at the end of its life. Proper ethical practices in the disposition of e-waste should always include:

  • A commitment to zero-landfill initiatives and signed documentation provided as proof of environmentally-safe e-waste disposal
  • Audit reports containing catalogued information of all IT units picked up, processed and repurposed

Some of the top environmental certifications to look for are:

ISO 14000 Standards – Environmental Management

Data Security

Data security management policies must ensure the safe destruction or cleansing of IT hardware that contains personal or company-owned information. When working with ITAD disposal companies, you should look for:

  • An audit report detailing each asset’s status upon pickup
  • A Certificate of Data Cleanse or Destruction for all securely disposed of assets

Some of the top data security management certifications to look for are:
