DNF Corporation offers to you the opportunity to dispose your old IT equipment in order to get credit on new purchase. DNF Recycling acts as a one stop destination for your recycling needs with regards to technology. Computers, PCs, DVRs, NVRs, Security cameras, servers and storage and all other network components are included in the credit against recyclable goods.
DNF arranges for pickup and transportation of the equipment to the company 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 510.342.5884 and ask for details.
DNF will perform a detailed inventory and assessment of the equipment at our facility. A detailed report will be generated and provided to the user at no cost.
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.
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.
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 the user will never pay DNF to have any items hauled away.
NOTE—A credit will depend on many factors. For example, a working or non-working unit, the condition of each item the age of the item, quantity, and such. For instance- The user gets a credit of $5 to $20 on servers and PCs using Pentium 4, Intel I series and xeon processors. $20 is offered per drive taken out from RAID, NAS and SAN products. $5 is offered for DVRs and security cameras.
For data destruction services- the user is charged $10 for drilling holes in the hard drive platters, irrespective of the storage capacity. For sanding platters using commercial grade sanders is charged at $20. For writing 0’s and 1’s for department of defense related appliances $5 is charged.
