The Collection & Recycling Process

Assured ITD's pickup and recycling process is simple and efficient and follows the steps below. This process ensures all customers receive similar results.

Step 1 - Consultation & Scheduling
A project begins when Assured ITD communicates with you or your personnel to initiate a Statement-of-Work and to set a pickup appointment. In most cases this happens electronically or by a simple phone call. For residential consumers, a Statement-of-Work is not required.

Step 2 - Pickup, Collection, Transport & Invoicing
On arrival, Assured ITD performs a basic evaluation and gathers your selected assets. When onsite data destruction isrequested, the technician removes the data storage component if needed and renders it inoperable prior to exiting your facility or home. All materials are loaded for transport. Some payments are tendered immediately. Invoicing is common for commercial customers.

Step 3 - Asset Disposition Auditing
All components arriving at our facility are entered into Assured's Asset Disposition Assurance Manager (ADAM™) for tracking and inventory. This enables Assured to track their disposition and recycling.

Step 4 - Data Destruction & Detagging
In some cases, hard drives and information storage devices are removed. DoD-compliant data erasure procedures are conducted. Destruction can include physical destruction, magnetic degausing, low-level formatting and/or drilling. Any and all corporate asset tags are removed if requested.

Step 5 - Recycling/Remarketing Processing
Obsoleted and scrap assets are bundled, and transported to Assured's third-party recycling provider for final processing. Assured ITD does not remarket, resell or otherwise re-distribute any components.

Step 6 - Certificates of Destruction Generated
After notification of destruction, Certificates of Destruction are generated. Copies of these documents are kept on file by Asssured™ ITD, and electronic copies distributed to the customer. These certificates can also be downloaded on-demand through ADAM.
