EU compliant IT recycling
ELM was established by Recarta IT, a well-respected and trusted solution and service provider, to release the maximum residual value from retiring IT assets while complying with data destruction and WEEE regulations.

We understand how to get the best value from redundant IT and have trade relationships with all the major enterprise equipment stockists worldwide. You can consign the goods to us so that we resell into the market for maximum value, or it may be a simple process of dismantling for parts.

How it works
We will need a list of the redundant IT assets with as much detail on model types, specification and condition as possible.
From this, our consultants can make an accurate evaluation of the removal, disposal and possible residual values. ELM can also provide you with a professional technician to carry out an audit and eventual de-commissioning for an agreed fee. We will need to know if you have any data destruction obligations, if you have a preferred method, whether it is to be carried out offsite or onsite and the certification required for compliance in your industry.
Data destruction
Certificates of data destruction/erasure will be produced for all methods.

Blancco Erasure Software

Blancco is the leader in data erasure software and completely wipes storage devices to Enhanced Standard, Infosec Level 5.

Data Shredding

This total destruction of the storage device, can be provided onsite or offsite where we will crush, chop and shred to 15-25ml fragments.

Data Degaussing

In the case of a magnetic storage device, it has the same effect as wiping but renders the device useless.
WEEE Directive
Under the WEEE directive, businesses must do everything they can to re-use electrical equipment. ELM operate a policy of maximum refurbishment, re-use and recycling with over 90% of equipment collected being re-purposed. As your partner for WEEE disposal, you can be sure that you are following the directive.
