Dell Technologies expands recycling service

Dell Technologies has announced the expansion of Dell Asset Recovery Services. The service supports any brand of laptop, desktop, server, peripheral or accessory. This helps Channel partners create value from existing IT assets and the implementation sustainable recycling and recovery services at scale.

Asset Recovery Services is available through Dell Technologies and its channel partners. Rob Tomlin, vice president, UK channel, Dell Technologies, explained, “The truth is, asset valuation and recovery can be complex; many channel partners have expressed concern regarding the time management and compliance implications surrounding IT asset disposition.

“Our refreshed offering addresses all of these issues. By modernising the experience with an online portal and built-in tools, we’re giving partners the flexibility to support their business goals and customer needs.”

Since 2008, Dell has recovered more than 2.5 billion electronics through its takeback programmes. The expanded Asset Recovery Services includes a new, online self-service portal that provides real-time value estimates, comprehensive resources and schedules the takeback of devices.

Stuart Nyemecz, vice president and head of UK enterprise sales, Dell Technologies, added, “Businesses understand the urgency of the e-waste crisis and want to adopt more circular IT strategies, including the resale, repair, or recycling of their end of use equipment. Still, we know the risks associated with data security and environmental liability can feel overwhelming.

“Worries about IT systems ending up in a landfill or data falling into the wrong hands are enough to keep the best IT decision-maker awake at night. Our modernised, simplified Asset Recovery Service offers customers peace of mind, helping them retire IT equipment securely and sustainably and unlock the value in those old devices for future innovation.”

Dell Asset Recovery Services has no unit minimums for businesses of all sizes. When customers turn in their devices, data is removed in alignment with data sanitisation standards to minimise customer exposure to data security breaches. The expanded offering now includes onsite data sanitisation and onsite hard-drive shred.
