Secure Disposal and Recovery

Collection

Returning assets is easy. We liaise with your local site contacts to confirm the details of decommissioned assets to be collected, check if there are any site or access restrictions, and finally schedule the collection. Assets may be collected boxed or unboxed.

Freight

Assets will be transported to the nearest capital city for processing at an Interlink or partner facility, Australia-wide.
Our sensitive freight network extends from national freight companies to local carriers. We choose the right freight solution to minimise costs, every time.

For national projects we will process your assets in multiple states concurrently, further minimising costs and compressing project timeframes.

Receipt and Registration

On receipt at our facility assets will be checked into our asset tracking/warehouse system. Each delivery is uniquely identified, and each asset allocated a unique Interlink barcoded asset number to facilitate tracking throughout the entire process.

The following asset details will be recorded and reported:

  • Type
  • Make
  • Model
  • Serial number
  • Client Asset Number

Data Sanitisation

We securely wipe the hard drives of all PC’s, notebooks and servers, using a number of industry leading Data Sanitisation applications. In certain cases the hard drives may be degaussed or physically destroyed.

We also wipe the configurations of decommissioned network devices using Cisco certified engineers.

Interlink provides Certificates of Data Sanitisation for all hard drives, including references the asset serial number and the hard drive serial number.

Testing

All assets are tested on receipt, unless they are clearly unusable or of no value. We check whether all the parts and accessories are included – notebook power adaptors, for example – we test operability and grade the physical condition of the assets. Assets are broadly classified as usable or unusable.

Value Recovery

Usable assets will be remarketed or stored for future redeployment.

Environmental disposal

All assets deemed to be unusable in their present form are dismantled with their components separated to be processed by our materials recycling partners. Interlink’s environmental disposal processes comply with ISO 14001 standards.
