COMMERCIAL SHREDDING - WEEE DIRECTIVE
The importance of commercial shredding of data was underlined by the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations, which provided for all data. Information stored on computers and other IT equipment such as copiers, fax machines and even printers can be easily overlooked. And it’s an uncomfortable fact that even if you reformat a hard drive and erase its contents, it’s still possible to retrieve data from it.
The WEEE Regulations aim to separate this equipment from municipal waste to ensure better recovery and recycling rates. All businesses have to comply. And if you dispose of WEEE that may contain information covered by the Data Protection Act, you should ensure that the waste disposal business you use holds a relevant certificate in information security management or equivalent. Our industrial data destruction services comprise secure shredding and incineration to ensure complete compliance with the WEEE directive.
