We understand the complex requirements of waste management and act in full compliance with local regulations relating to our products, including WEEE. Our disposal and decommissioning services provide a complete approach to ensure the security of your data and the environment:
Components containing hazardous materials are managed by our experienced team and partners trained in hazardous waste disposal, providing certification where needed. In full compliance with WEEE. Batteries, electronic parts, radiation sources and potentially hazardous chemicals are handled with the utmost care to prevent environmental harm.
Following your outreach to Smiths Detection, our expert team will work with you to determine an appropriate disposal plan, taking into consideration any residual value of the equipment, and discuss with equipment replacement opinions.
If the equipment stores any sensitive data, we work with you to develop a data management plan to securely transfer and/or destroy stored data on the equipment to prevent data breaches.
Next we will develop a disposal plan in line with local and international electronic waste (e waste) disposal regulations, ensuring that all disposal activities adhere to legal requirements to prevent environmental and legal issues.
Once we have agreed on the decommissioning and disposal plan, together and agreed on timing the following steps will be taken:
1. Component Extraction: Engineers remove components that are determined to be salvageable for refurbishment and reuse to reduce waste and promote sustainability.
2. Waste recycling and disposal: The equipment is broken down into the resources that can be recycled or repurposed and those that require appropriate disposal adhering to legal requirements.
Once the decommissioning and disposal of your equipment is complete, if required, we can provide verification that the process has been completed according to plan, including documentation detailing the disposal process, data erasure, hazardous material disposal.
