Secure IT Asset Disposition Services that Elevate security, improve sustainability, and protect brand reputation

With most IT teams fully consumed by their “day jobs”—setting up new employees’ computers, managing network security, deploying and supporting applications, and maintaining an infrastructure—there’s almost no time left to focus on best practices for IT asset disposition (ITAD). Inadequate attention dedicated to the proper disposition of IT assets leads to increased risks, including loss of control over confidential data, lack of compliance, and impacted financial performance.

What IT Asset Disposition Services We Offer


IT Asset Recycling

Secure ITAD Programme
An ongoing, customised programme ideal for multiple corporate locations that periodically recycle significant volumes of IT assets via scheduled pickups.


IT Asset Remarketing

Remarketing lowers your Total Cost of Ownership (TCO), increases ROI, and minimises environmental impact by extending useful life (up to 20 times less energy-intensive than recycling).

Assets with sufficient fair market value are tested, graded, refurbished, and sold to maximise value recovery.

All data is destroyed and assets that fail testing are recycled.

Iron Mountain’s remarketing service increases value recovery by up to 45% vs. alternatives through extensive partner channels, including a global network of 45,000 system integrators, VARS, consultants, and maintenance companies.

Additional Services

Secure Media Destruction

Shredding or degaussing of data-bearing media such as hard drives or computer tapes can take place onsite at your premises or offsite. Itemisation ensures that all media designated for destruction has been processed and provides an audit trail.

Lease Return Services

Lease schedules are monitored and assets that are at the end of lease are itemised, wiped of all data, and returned to the lessor. This process frees up internal space and resources, and minimises fees for late returns.
