E-Waste Solutions

Cyclone > E-Waste Solutions

What do you do with your old technology?

We want to work with you to achieve the highest possible financial return in an environmentally friendly way.

 

Cyclone chooses partners that can provide you re-use solutions incorporating testing, cleaning, refurbishment, data destruction and sale of electronic assets.

The process:
Collection & Removal
Asset Processing
Data Sanitisation
Re-marketing & Recycling

Collection and Removal

  • Cyclone will organise collection of assets from any customer nominated location and securely transport them back to our nominated IT Asset Disposition depot.
  • Upon receipt of equipment into our depot, all assets will be assigned a unique identifying barcode registering the asset as being received pending inspection, testing and reporting.
  • Assets will then be checked for physical condition and completeness and entered into our partners specialised inventory management system.

Asset Processing

We will provide the following asset processing services:

  • Physically check assets for appearance, operability and completeness
  • Capture asset details including but not limited to:
    • Serial Number
    • Customer Asset Tag Number
    • Asset Type
    • Make
    • Model
    • Processor (CPU)
    • RAM (Memory)
    • Hard Disk Drive capacity
    • Screen Size
    • Any other relevant equipment details
  • Clean assets and ensure all identifying labels, marks, asset tags and references to customer are removed.

Data Sanitisation

Our Data Cleansing Service can be designed to protect the confidential and sensitive nature of our customer’s data. We are able to ensure information does not become available in the public domain through the retirement of IT equipment at end-of-life.

 

Options can include:

  • As a minimum, we will apply the following Data Cleansing Service for requested customer assets: we connect directly to the device hard disk drive (HDD) and executes a three pass minimum data overwrite process using an enterprise level, industry accredited and government approved program. This process effectively overwrites stored data on the HDD
  • The data overwrite will be performed to US Department of Defence DoD 5220.22-M standard Proof of successful data erasure can be provided through a certificate of data destruction.

Re-marketing & Recycling

Based on pre-specified criteria our Recovery Services will provide you with the most appropriate asset disposition outcome for each specific device including:

 

Equipment Remarketing

 

We will remarket used IT equipment purchased from the customer, through channels such as resellers, retailers, brokers and overseas dealers. Our extensive knowledge in remarketing extends to PC equipment, enterprise servers, storage systems, photocopiers, printers and networking products.

Most importantly, our partners remarketing is performed ethically. Many second hand dealers have been found to export ‘e-waste’ into developing nations. We are committed to export quality working equipment and are selective with our remarketing channels. We only use reputable long term buyers who share our values with regards to the environment.

 

Environmentally Friendly Recycling

 

Our Technology Recovery Services will provide an environmentally friendly recycling service for any item that has no commercial resale value (due to age or condition). Our program guarantees “minimal landfill” and involves detailed disassembly of each item of equipment. We adhere to national and international e-waste standards.

Various components i.e. circuit boards, batteries, precious metals etc are then sold to specialist recyclers around the world. Due to the labour intensive nature of this solution, disposal normally comes at a “per unit” cost.
