When your old IT equipment is at the end of its useful life, what do you do with it? Our asset disposal & recycling program focuses on recycling and redeploying equipment - within your organization, through the resale market, or through our award-winning Green4Good program. We handle everything. We begin by picking up your equipment and shipping it to our state-of-the-art, ISO 9001:2008-certified configuration centre. Then we recover your software licenses and securely erase the data from your old machines.
92% of the equipment parts are reused, and the remaining pieces are sent for recycling. Nothing goes to landfill. Compugen adheres to secure data removal standards set out by the US Department of Defence and the RCMP. We wipe all data off incoming machines and remove all traces of owner identification and asset tags. We issue certificates confirming that environmental guidelines have been followed, that hard drives have been wiped clean and that all data is removed.
Everything is much simpler now that we have only one organization responsible for the entire life of our PC assets...We acquire assets from Compugen, we finance them through Compugen Finance, Compugen deploys them, fixes them and, at end of the lease, takes them back, makes sure they are in working order and wipes the drives clean in accordance with Department of Defense standards
Where does Green4Good come in? An IT audit allows us to determine the value of your equipment and whether it can be re-used. If the equipment has value, we wipe it clean, refurbish it and resell it on the used equipment market. We'll credit the residual value to your account, and then you can then donate the credit in the form of services and hardware to a charity of your choice. If it has no value, we destroy the data and dismantle the pieces for recycling in the most environmentally friendly way possible.
