  • What happens to the decommissioned tech sent to Enable for recycling?
    When your equipment arrives, it is given a job number. Items are data sanitised using commercial grade software, tested, graded, and checked for functionality. At this point, a decision is made regarding their next life. All items are entered into The Enable Service System (TESS) and can be tracked through Enable's accredited downstream recyclers and waste partners. All asset tags are removed. Data sanitisation erase methods and standards include Australian ISM-6.2.93 and US DOD 5220.22M, US DOD 5220.22(ECE) OR NIST 800-88 which meets ISM controls; ISM-0354; ISM-1065; ISM-1067; ISM-0359 and ISM-1735.
