    Computer Recycling - South Birmingham, West Midlands

    Can anyone recommend a computer recycling company?

    Cheap or as free as possible and give you a certificate at the end to say its all safely wiped?

    PRM Green Technologies PRM Green Technologies Ltd - Free IT Disposal & Recycling for all - Welcome Got great service from them, it's free and they send you a destruction certificate. Although they will collect nationwide they're only at Rugely.

    How many disks can DBAN wipe concurrently? | Darik's Boot And Nuke

    should be able to wipe about 4 at a time, so if you setup one computer and just take all the hard drives out of the old machines , prolly a day or twos work using a dban disc ?

    I tend to strip out the HDD and wipe it onsite, before destruction.

    Stone will charge 5 each HDD for wiping (I think!)

    BUT, they do take EVERYTHING that you have!

    Cases, printers, scanners, switches, you name it!, leads, monitors (Both CRT and flat).

    I've really enjoyed dealing with them, as they are so good at communication.
