Cobalt serves as your one-stop-shop for complete ITAD services. We remove every ounce of risk from the moment of pick up. As an R2 certified IT asset disposition company, we are committed to data security. Dispose of unwanted electronics while protecting sensitive data and helping the environment.
Cobalt provides complete ITAD services. From electronics recycling to data destruction, we are the premier ITAD partner. Regardless if the electronics are recyclcled or refurbished and resold, we make sure all of your sensitive data is unrecoverable.
We provide secure transportation to our state-of-the-art processing facility. We even prepare and package the electronics for you.
Every piece of electronics equipment is evaluated by our certified team of experts to determine if it will be recycled or refurbished. Identifying data, such as serial numbers, are recorded.
If there is no resale value, Cobalt's innovative shredding system leaves every byte of data unrecoverable. Our electronics recycling process minimizes your footprint on the environment while promoting a circular economy.
If electronics have reuse potential, then the hardware goes through a process known as data sanitization which involves purging and clearing data. Refurbished electronics help reduce e-waste and promotes sustainability.
Cobalt's detailed documentation and reporting confirms that the ITAD process was carried out properly. Adequate documentation is necessary for auditing and compliance.
Data destruction is a process that securely eliminates information stored on hard drives and other data-bearing equipment, rendering it completely unreadable and unrecoverable. Total data destruction can be achieved either by using software to wipe a storage device or physically dismantling and shredding it. Cobalt is the premier certified provider of secure data destruction for decommissioned electronics.
The process of electronics recycling includes proper equipment collection, secure transportation, data sanitization, and shredding. We do everything it takes to get your material to our state-of-the-art processing facility, even preparing and packaging it for you. I.T. assets that our experts deem reusable will undergo audits and data sanitization. End-of-life units and any other piece of hardware that fails our tests will be shredded and recycled.
ITAD (IT Asset Disposition) services are responsible for managing all aspects of the end-of-life disposal for hardware and software. They ensure that hardware is securely wiped, recycled, and disposed of in accordance with data privacy laws and regulations.
Any organization with electronic waste will benefit from ITAD services. This includes those who need to securely dispose of old hardware, laptops, servers, and other equipment to protect confidential information and meet regulatory compliance requirements.
Some of the top industries that benefit from ITAD are:
When choosing the right ITAD provider, it is important to consider several factors.
Implementing an ITAD program can provide numerous benefits.
Our ITAD process begins with secure transportation to our facility. Our expert team then audits each piece of equipment assessing its next steps. Equipment with resell value will go through data sanitization then refurbished. Assets that have reached the end of their life will be destroyed and recycled. Both processes promote sustainability and reduce e-waste. Finally, we provide clear and transparent reporting.
R2 certification is an industry standard developed by the Responsible Recycling (R2) Practices which covers the responsible management of electronic waste through a set of requirements and processes. To obtain this certification, a recycler must demonstrate their ability to handle e-waste in an ecologically sound manner and comply with applicable laws and regulations. The certification is also designed to protect customers’ sensitive data by ensuring that all hard drives and other storage devices are securely wiped before disposal.
