RECYCLING & E-WASTE
Disposing of your end-of-life IT assets in an environmentally friendly manner.
Ameta will assist you with managing and disposing of that said equipment in a safe, compliant, and environmentally responsible way. Due to government regulations, there are rules that most companies must follow pertaining to the disposal of EOL IT equipment. The main directives are the Waste Electronic and Electrical Equipment (WEEE) directive, as well as the 1998 Data Protection Act and GPDR – all require that businesses dealing with sensitive data keep that data backed up and secured at all times.
Data Erasure Program
The 1998 Data Protection Act does not require all companies to discard their data. However, we strongly recommend that you have the data properly – and safely – discarded from your equipment. Our Data Erasure Program will help you with this task. To learn more about this program, please click on the following link.
You can help reduce e-waste and follow the environmental regulations set by the government when you dispose of your IT equipment. Respecting the environmental regulations of your country is essential when disposing of your IT equipment. Ameta recycle various types of IT equipment, from hard drives, workstations and servers, to arrays and mainframes. We will pick up your equipment from any country around the world to ensure that it is disposed of at one of our partners’ recycling locations. We also certify that the pickup was successful by supplying you with a certificate of delivery.
TRADE-INS & BUYBACKS
Convert excess assets into cash
Although your equipment may be approaching the End of Life threshold, it could still be valuable to other companies. If this is the case, you will benefit from our market expertise, and get fair market value for your disposed assets if you decide to resell them.
You send us a list of equipment, we send you fair market value and give you the option to convert your excess assets into cash or Ameta credit for future purchases. We cover all logistics.
To assist you in selling your end-of-life assets, we also offer the option to resell the equipment for you on a consignment basis. If you choose to consign your unwanted assets, we will clean, test and repack your equipment, and sell it on your behalf.
Regardless of which program you choose, you stand to make a financial gain by getting a better ROI, and by taking advantage of our partnerships with specialized logistics companies.
We strongly recommend that you have the data properly – and safely – discarded from your equipment. Our Data Erasure Program will help you with this task. We guarantee that your data is safely wiped, in an environmentally friendly manner.
Hard drives hold a large amount of confidential data, and without a proper wiping process, data can easily end up in the wrong hands, or be the source of a breach of confidentiality.
Strict regulations are in place in most countries. However, each country has a different process that it follows. Ameta runs the data erasure software Certus which is approved and certifed to uphold GPDR standars in order to ensure your company does not face civil or criminal liability.
We adapt our services to meet your needs. Different wiping levels (1 and 3 overwriting rounds) are offered, each depending on your specific needs. We offer on-site and off-site solutions.
