Disposing of Old IT Hardware

IT Blog from Resolve, IT Experts in Sheffield Disposing of Old IT Hardware
Getting rid of old computers, laptops, servers, monitors and network hardware can sometimes be a pain. But we've got a solution and Loren explains more.

Now that Spring has sprung, many people will be having a good old spring clean of their homes, gardens and even offices.  If this rings true for you, and you have unearthed some old IT hardware that needs disposing of, read on to find out how to safely and securely dispose of it...

Clearing out and disposing of old hardware is often a job that often goes on the backburner because shifting tech equipment isn't always straight forward - you can't just dump hard drives packed with personal or sensitive data into the wheelie bin, and you definitely can't go throwing it on a fire (never EVER do this).

The good news is, Resolve offer a disposal service for IT hardware, including...

  • Computers
  • Phones
  • Printers
  • Laptops
  • Servers & storage devices
  • Monitors
  • Network hardware


To guarantee your data and information is kept secure we will wipe all devices, destroying all data in line with strict legislation guidelines, following which, data destruction certificates can be provided. This ensures peace of mind, knowing your company data is completely removed from your old hardware before it arrives at the recycling plant.

As well as the safety aspect of securely disposing of old hardware, by using a managed service disposal service helps businesses enhance their CSR and green credentials, something which we also take very seriously at Resolve.
