Revive IT has invested in new environmental technology, as the Leeds-headquartered computer recycler prepares to double in size in 2021.
The company has procured an RS40 four shaft shredder from Boroughbridge-based UNTHA UK.
The purchase means Revive IT can bring its Waste Electrical and Electronic (WEEE) shredding services entirely in-house, making for more secure data destruction.
Initially tasking the four-shaft shredder with processing 5,000 redundant hard drives and 5,000 media tapes, Revive IT plans to routinely shred 1,000 more of each unit type, per week, to meet rising demand. However, the machine actually has the capacity for three times this volume, should the company continue to expand.
“Our customers turn to us for a fully-insured secure data destruction service, complete with the reassurance that all environmental – as well as compliance – obligations are being upheld,” said General Manager Oliver Bedford.
“GDPR and the increasing volume of data exchanged digitally, means demand for our services has continued to rise, and that was before COVID-19.
“Managing the WEEE shredding ourselves – rather than relying on third parties, however experienced – means we have complete quality control over our service provision, from end to end.
“We’re also better positioned to support more customers – including far larger organisations with ultra-sensitive security requirements.”
