In disposing of your retired IT assets, it’s crucial to choose the right ITAD company with a well-defined and well-structured program to ensure the security and integrity of your data, maximize ROI of each asset, control your assets, and stay in compliance with regulatory requirements.

With that being said, here are five key considerations you should have when choosing an IT asset disposition company:

1. “IT assets” refer to any computing device that is used for both personal or work purposes.

2. Data center IT asset disposition services specifically focus on secure, responsible, and eco-friendly disposition of IT equipment used by organizations in their data centers.

3. IT asset disposition companies may also offer IT assets lifecycle management services. Lifecycle management should begin before a new IT asset is purchased. ITAD companies should help create protocols for safe disposal, following a device through its entire lifecycle.

4. For any IT assets, it’s crucial for the company to fully consider various options whether the IT assets can be repaired, reused, or recycled before the IT asset is disposed of. Disposal should be the last possible option.

5. Since ITAD companies directly deal with the data security of the disposed of assets, it’s crucial for organizations looking to partner with ITAD companies to perform higher levels of due diligence. It’s crucial only to partner with IT asset disposition companies that have maintained data security best practices.

In short, it’s crucial for organizations to find an appropriate ITAD company capable of supporting your organization’s long-term objectives.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is IT Asset Disposition (ITAD) service?

IT Asset Disposition or ITAD service is the process of disposing of used, retired, or unwanted IT assets (i.e., equipment) in a secure, environmentally sustainable, and cost-effective manner. 

In practice, the ITAD process involves disposing of end-of-life IT equipment such as servers, computers, storage devices (HDDs, SSDs, backup tapes,) networking devices, and others with three key focuses:

  • Ensuring the data stored within the IT assets is securely wiped to prevent data leak/breach
  • Minimizing possibilities of environmental damage
  • Maximizing the value of the retired IT asset (i.e., via sale, repurposing, or recycling)


Why is IT asset disposition service necessary?

Proper IT asset disposition service is necessary for three main reasons:

  • Security: preventing confidential and sensitive data (especially consumers’ data) from falling into the wrong hands
  • Sustainability: reducing the negative environmental footprints of e-waste, for example by minimizing waste in landfill or bodies of water. Promoting repurposing and recycling of retired IT assets.
  • Compliance: ensuring the organizations disposing of their IT assets stay compliant with various regulations governing environmental sustainability and data privacy.


What type of equipment do ITAD services typically include?

ITAD services cover all types of IT assets and equipment, but some of the most common ones are:

  • Computers (desktop computers, laptops, servers, and mobile devices)
  • Storage devices (hard drives, SSDs, data tapes)
  • Networking equipment (network switches, routers, etc.)
  • Printers, and other computer peripherals
  • Various electronic components (adapters, power supplies, circuit boards, etc.)


How is data security maintained during the ITAD process?

Since one of the core objectives of ITAD services is to prevent confidential, data from being exposed, the ITAD vendor may use a range of measures to maintain data security, including but not limited to:

  • Secure data wiping: data is securely erased from the IT asset using specialized software to ensure it’s unrecoverable
  • Physical destruction: physical destruction of IT assets to make sure sensitive data is unrecoverable
  • Chain of custody: retired IT assets are tracked and monitored throughout the whole disposition process to prevent theft or loss
  • Secure transportation: retired IT assets are transported using secure protocols and vehicles to prevent theft
  • Background checks: all employees of the ITAD vendor must undergo rigorous background checks (i.e., make sure they have no criminal history) to ensure safety and security throughout the whole process. 


What is the difference between ITAD and e-waste recycling?

E-waste recycling solely focuses on recovering valuable materials from electronic waste, including retired IT assets, while ITAD also focuses on environmental sustainability and data security.

The main activity of e-waste recycling is the dismantling of IT assets to recover valuable materials such as aluminum, gold, silicon, and copper. On the other hand, ITAD services also involve secure data wiping, asset tracking, and responsible disposal/recycling.


What are IT asset disposition certificates?

IT asset disposition certificates are official documents issued by ITAD companies that provide legitimate proof that the retired IT assets have been disposed of in a secure, environmentally responsible way and in compliance with relevant regulations and laws. 

The certificate can be used to demonstrate the organization’s compliance with relevant data privacy and environmental laws/regulations, as well as other relevant standards.


Does it matter if an ITAD company has certifications?

Certifications and relevant accreditations indicate that an ITAD company has demonstrated credibility and compliance with relevant standards, regulations, and best practices. 

Important certifications in the ITAD industry include:

  • ISO 14001 for environmental management. 
  • ISO 9001 for quality management
  • R2v3 & RIOS (Responsible Recycling). An ITAD company that possessed R2v3 & RIOS certification has demonstrated that it follows responsible recycling practices, including environmental protection, worker  health and safety, and data security
  • E-stewards. Given to companies that have maintained responsible recycling practices, quite similar to R2v3 & RIOS.

It’s always a good idea to carefully evaluate potential IT asset disposition companies based on their certifications, accreditations, experience, and reputation before committing to one vendor.


Can we be compliant with data handling while using an ITAD company?

Yes, and in fact, working with the right ITAD company can help us stay compliant with relevant data handling laws and regulations.

Certified ITAD companies like Big Data Supply Inc. used specialized data wiping and physical destruction methods to ensure data is unrecoverable from IT assets before recycling, reuse, or disposal. 


Does it cost anything to use an ITAD company?

Some ITAD companies may charge a fee for pickup and disposal of IT assets, while some may charge a fee for their services.

Additionally, some IT asset disposition companies may offer secure data wiping and destruction services for a fee.

You can sell your retired IT assets in bulk for free without any charge to Big Data Supply Inc.


Which is more beneficial: using ITAD services or selling IT hardware ourselves?

The answer to this question would depend on the organization’s specific goals and needs, as well as the available resources.

Here are some factors to consider:

  • Data security: selling your retired assets to an ITAD company can ensure data is securely wiped, and they’ll be able to provide a certificate of data destruction for compliance purposes.If your organization does not have the necessary expertise or resources to perform secure data wiping, it may be beneficial to use ITAD services.
  • Expertise: ITAD companies have expertise in handling, recycling and disposing of IT assets in an environmentally sustainable manner. 
  • ROI: Selling your IT assets yourselves may result in a higher ROI, but finding the buyer can prove to be a challenge. Selling your IT assets to an ITAD company may be cost-effective if you are selling in bulk and/or if your IT equipment is in poor condition or is already too old. 
  • Time and resources: using ITAD services may save your organization’s valuable time and resources, as you won’t need to handle the complex processes of disposing of the retired IT assets yourself (data wiping, packaging, transport, disposal, etc.)
  • Compliance: certified ITAD companies can ensure that your organization remains compliant with relevant environmental and data privacy regulations when disposing of IT assets.
