FLP securely collects and recycles all types of printers. We guarantee the destruction of your confidential data stored on your printers. FLP can ensure your compliance with all applicable regulations such as WEEE and GDPR when it comes to disposing of redundant printers.

Data security is our key focal point throughout the entire service. We ensure adherence to an extensive Data Security Risk Assessment Control Plan, ensuring that all risks are evaluated. Within our data destruction and sanitisation process, we use market-leading software from BLANCCO and ADISA to permanently erase all data on HDDs and SSDs. We can offer you a range of data sanitisation methods including DoD 5220.22-M and NIST 800-88.

After the data has been removed securely from your printers, we will provide you with a certificate for each individual storage device, providing you with certified evidence that your data has been safely destroyed.

FAQs

Printer disposal is a structured process aimed at responsibly managing the end-of-life cycle of printers.

After we collect or receive your printers, our team employs advanced data sanitisation methods, ensuring the complete and secure erasure of any data on printers, in compliance with data protection regulations. Then, printers are dismantled and materials recovered for either reuse or recycling to promote sustainability. 

WEEE stands for “Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment” – covering a huge range of devices. To be more specific, this includes most things which are powered by a battery or a plug.

The amount of WEEE waste produced in the UK is increasing rapidly. 

In 2007, the WEEE Directive became legislation. This directive works to contribute to sustainable production and consumption, by preventing the creation of WEEE as a first priority and to reduce the amount of WEEE being disposed of in landfill.

GDPR stands for the General Data Protection Regulation. It is a comprehensive data protection law which came into effect in 2018. The primary purpose of GDPR is to allow and empower individual responsibility and control over their personal data, and to set a higher standard for how organisations handle and process this information.

Non-compliance with GDPR can result in substantial fines. It is essential for organisations which handle personal data to understand and adhere to the principles outlined in GDPR.

The official website of the General Data Protection Regulation provides comprehensive information, guidelines and resources. Visit: EU GDPR Portal

For a few reasons, printer recycling is incredibly important:

  • Data security – Responsible recycling and disposal choices can help prevent your data being put into the wrong hands.
  • Environmentally conscious – Recycling printers reduces the amount of e-waste heading towards landfill sites. 
  • Legal compliance – Adhering to environmental regulations and data protection laws through responsible recycling mitigates legal risks.
  • Circular economy – Printer recycling aligns with the principles of a circular economy, promoting the reuse of materials and minimising environmental impact.
