Securely dispose of data
& Recycle Hardware
Disposing of your old computer equipment and data holding devices via a non-secure means can pose a significant risk to the security of your business.
Even after being wiped and seemingly destroyed with a hammer, confidential information contained on your hard drive or data devices may still be accessible. At Galaxy , we are totally committed to disposing of all your IT equipment and data holding media in a safe, secure, confidential and eco-friendly way. Our service is available for a single media item or for several thousand items as we are able to shred up to 2,000 media items per day either in your office or in one of our bespoke vehicles. In addition, an onsite degaussing service is available on request, where we use a state of the art Degausser to destroy data held on magnetic data storage. If Data wiping is required, Galaxy can also offer a complete service using the latest forensic software.
The Galaxy 5 Point Secure
Destruction and Recycling Process
* The European Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment directive requires that at least 75% of raw materials be recovered.
We, however, have a ‘zero to landfill’ policy and recover 100%.
Galaxy is the only IT specialised recycling company in the Channel Islands and is able to offer a complete WEEE* compliant disposal option on all redundant IT hardware.
From the removal and recycling of screens, PCs, printers, switches, servers and telecom equipment, we provide full end of audit documentation itemising details such as item, make and model along with serial number and, if applicable, asset tag number in our end of collection certification. We will quote for disposal from your inventory. Some hardware may have residual value. Once you accept our proposal, we will visit your premises to remove the equipment for recycling. All items will first be inspected for your company asset tags and remaining data holding devices (some photocopiers have memory installed). All equipment will be listed and serial numbers will be recorded by bar code reader. All confidential data will be removed and destroyed at this stage. Equipment will then be transported to our warehouse where tags and hard disk drives will be removed before the hardware is sent to the Guernsey’s prison. We have a contract with the Prison, whereby inmates are trained to disassemble the equipment and segregate all components, and earn privileges for the work they do. Galaxy Computers has a ‘Zero to Landfill’ policy so every part will be either recycled or reused. On completion we will issue certificates of destruction and recycling, which provides Clients with a secure destruction and disposal audit trail. At all times we undertake to maintain your anonymity and our work for you remains confidential.

The M.A.S.S Concept
In a modern business where flexibility and service delivery is key, there is an expectation that all services should be received fromany location, at any time. To meet the demands of a business, it’s important that staff can react quickly and effectively whilemaintaining a high standard of service. Technology has evolved dramatically to offer mobility working without the need of physically being in the office.
But how can you achieve this flexibility without compromising productivity?
This is where the M.A.S.S (Mobility, Accessibility, Security, and Service) concept can help. This concept, developed and trailed by the Galaxy CI team; offers huge benefits to its Customers. A Mobility Working platform means that our Customers can expect to be able to offer their staff an improved and flexible working environment.
- Less staff hours lost through illness of dependents, due to the ability to operate from home
- Disaster recovery out of the box, through device mobility. This reduces DR site rental costs
- Staff and site movements made easie
- Use of wireless (and possibly 4G) networks reducing the need for floor box moves when desks move
- The ability to work from any location means staff can stay connected in meetings
- Mobility offers flexible hours, reducing the burden on parking and congestion
- “Snow day” plans are a thing of the past
- A Single architecture means less support issues
- “Travel for business” issues mitigated
