As you watch the driver pull away with all of your hard drives, are you confident that you know exactly what’s happening to those items? Are they being juggled between multiple sites or going straight to their final destination? Have you audited the site to understand the processes taking place? Is the company tracking each item closely enough to guarantee no items are misplaced along the way? These details are important and should be asked and considered during end-of-life IT asset management to prevent security risks, comply with regulatory requirements, and ensure responsible disposition.
We can’t expect companies to know what to look for, but we do recommend performing your due diligence. As guidance, Sims Recycling Solutions put together a document for you to reference when selecting your IT asset disposal vendor. This can help you identify if the vendor you’re interested in is going to be the right fit for you.
