IT Asset Disposal should be compliant with relevant legislation.

  • POPI - (Protection of Personal Information Act) requires the complete erasure of personal data from storage devices
  • NEWMA - (National Environmental Management: Waste Act, 2008) requires the proper disposal of hazardous materials
  • Financial and Taxation legislations require the proper recording of asset disposal

Penalties have been tabled which include up to R10m in fines and heavy jail terms for company directors for non-compliance

Data Erasure

All data is erased using software that meets the requirements of the US Department of Defense international standards (US DoD 5220.22-M). Secure removal of data allows drives to be re-used, a more environmentally sustainable solution. Drives which are damaged or faulty in any way are detroyed and stripped for recycling. A certificate of data destruction is issued.

Environmental Disposal

It is essential that a compliant disposal process is used. Some collectors of e-Waste are known to strip out valuable components and dump the hazardous material at municipal dumps. Serial numbers and asset tags are often traceable which could result in heavy penalties for companies and their directors.


We provide an audited end-to-end process for the disposal of assets, and issue all relevant Certificates of Compliance.
