DNF is a full service solution designed to meet the requirements of assisting you with technology disposal. A unique program that provides you a hassle-free experience through our hassle-free 5-step process:
1. Pickup & Transportation
DNF will arrange for pickup and transportation of the equipment to our location. Typically there is no fee associated with the pickup and removal of equipment however distance of travel is currently limited to the State of California. If travel is required outside of California, please call us in advance at 510-265-1122 and ask for details.
2. Inventory Audit & Assessment
DNF will perform a detailed inventory and assessment of the equipment at our facility. A detailed report will be generated and provided to you at no cost.
3. Disassembly & Part Sorting
Each unit will be carefully disassembled and parts will be sorted based upon their recyclable properties and whether or not they contain hazardous properties. This process is performed with full compliance from the EPA and our clients have the option of receiving a full Waiver of Liability for any and all disposed and recycled products.
4. Data Destruction & Wiping
For an extra fee, DNF will erase the data from your drives using one of three methods. The first method is writing 0's and 1's to the drive which permanently erases traces of any data. The second method is drilling holes in the hard drive platters in such a manner that prevents further access to the platters. The third method involves sanding the platters using an industrial sander. This is the most proven method of insuring protection of ultra-sensitive data.
5. Credit Toward New Products
DNF has developed a set of benchmarks for determining whether or not selected items have value. These benchmarks are dynamic and can change on a daily basis. Please keep in mind that not all items accepted will qualify for a credit however you will never pay us to have any items hauled away. A credit will depend on many factors of our benchmarks, for example, a working or non-working unit, the condition of each item the age of the item, quantity, and such.
