Collection and Waste Transfer Notes

For all businesses, it is now a legal requirement (The Waste Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations 2013) to dispose of your computers and electronic equipment legally with Waste Transfer notes to an Authorised Recycler.

By recycling your IT equipment with Jamie’s you will be reducing your carbon footprint and helping the local community.

We provide waste transfer notes approved by the Environment Agency and have a T11 exemption certificate as a fully registered waste facility. We also provide free data destruction certificates for businesses, however a charge of £10 applies to individuals.

Data Destruction

“Data Destruction is a key process at Jamies Computers and our Number 1 Priority”

Data destruction & Certification

  • FREE to businesses
  • £10 to individuals

This allows the computer equipment to be refurbished and reused.

Our Technicians use Blancco 5 software to erase the data, the software then re-scans the hard disk to verify that the data destruction is complete and creates a test report that contains our refurb code, make/model and serial number of that hard disk.

Blancco provides thousands of organizations with an absolute line of defense against costly security breaches, as well as verification of regulatory compliance through a 100% tamper-proof audit trail.  Blancco has been tested, certified, approved and recommended by 18 governing bodies around the world, and erases to U.S. Department of Defense (Standard 5220.22-M) and  21 other standards, to meet security and regulatory compliance requirements.

We guarantee to physically destroy any hard drives that are faulty or that we cannot wipe.

We will produce a data destruction certificate for your records to show that all data destruction for your assets is complete.
