What are Dell Asset Recovery Services?

Dell asset recovery services are a safe and effective way to retire unused Dell assets and achieve maximum return in the data center.  Recovering and retiring unused assets is an inevitable step in the IT life cycle – when will your company partake in Dell Asset Recovery?

By keeping unused Dell equipment locked away in a closet gathering dust, your company is losing valuable storage space.  But what if that equipment is housing data that needs security? To truly secure your Dell hard drives, their hard drives need to be properly.

You can guarantee that your retired IT equipment never contributes to this global environmental epidemic by partnering with a certified electronics recycler and IT asset disposition service provider.  So how do you manage your Dell assets?

First, a typical ITAD project starts with a comprehensive audit to identify the assets designated for disposition and facilitates proper asset management.  Our team of Dell product experts provide fair-market appraisals on all decommissioned components to help your company determine the most productive options for maximizing value.

Frequently Asked Questions About the ITAD Process for Dell Asset Recovery

Data erasure (or clearing/wiping) is a software-based process that completely overwrites the hard drive with random zeroes and ones, effectively obscuring any residual data left on the device under several layers of meaningless binary. Data destruction is the physical process of making a hard drive unusable for conventional equipment.

Depending on your specific hardware, compliance, and budgetary limitations, you will need to decide whether to have your data sanitized on-site or off-site.  As with any decision, both sides will have pros and cons.

Mom-and-pop shops will offer “e-cycling” services at a bargain price, especially within smaller markets. If they cannot offer you legal documentation—or if they don’t have the proper ISO or R2 certifications to guarantee your hardware’s proper recycling and disposal—you will face the legal ramifications if your servers end up tossed in a landfill or left to gather dust in an abandoned warehouse.

Punching requires hand-drills or drill presses to punch holes into the drives to make them unreadable (although, plausibly, if not done correctly, data could still be gleaned from the drive). While this method is more effective with spinning disks, it is not as effective with solid state drives (SSDs).

Shredding machines are very similar to paper shredders, but they are built to accommodate more resilient materials. The machine’s powerful, rotating teeth completely destroy the drive, leaving no possibility for drive or data reassembly. This method is ideal for all types of hard drives but remains especially important for SSDs to ensure the destruction of each onboard memory chip.
