  • Recycling Used Servers

    ITAD and selling used serversWith the growing emphasis on reducing an organization's carbon footprint, today's IT professionals are responsible for finding ways to dispose of used servers in ways that are more friendly to the environment.

    Often, a data center that needs to get rid of servers no longer in use, will contact a company that specializes in ITAD (IT Asset Disposition). Recycling a decommissioned server generally involves parting out the hardware to components including the drives, memory, fans, power supplies, and network adapter cards that can be used again. If the chassis or board is too old for resale, it is recycled responsibly with a qualified electronics recycling vendor.

    Is there way to recycle used servers for free? Yes!

    World Data Products has a used server buyback program. We buy packages of server and networking equipment from data centers. If the list of hardware has enough value left in the components, we coordinate and pay for shipping to our facility. If the hardware is too old and would cost more to ship than the components are worth, we will recommend local disposal with an electronics recycling firm. Brands we look for include used Dell, HP, IBM, and Cisco UCS servers.

    Here's how it works:

    1. Create a list of the server hardware you wish to recycle. Be as specific as possible, how many, which kind, and capacity of drives? How many and which processors? How much memory is there in each server, power supplies etc.?
    2. Assess your company's data security policy. Will your company be responsible for data destruction, or will World Data Products need to provide data/media destruction or shredding services? We perform a thorough audit of the equipment, resetting the configuration back to its original factory settings. All drives are tested and formatted. Additional erasure or destruction requirements must be agreed on in advance.
    3. Get the specifics on shipping. World Data Products arranges and pays for the shipping. We can even coordinate packing when necessary. Is the data center on the 12th floor with no access to packing materials? If there is enough value in the equipment, we can get it done.
    4. Send us your list. Upload your list in one of these document or spreadsheet formats (xlsx, docx, txt, rtf), or just paste the text into our "sell servers" contact form.

    Recycling is a great way to keep old hardware out of the landfills. Selling decommissioned equipment to an ITAD professional enables your department to recycle server equipment and potentially make money at the same time.

    World Data Products buys used servers, networking equipment, and storage from many brands including Cisco, Dell, HP, UCS, IBM, Super Micro, EMC, NetApp and others. We also buy and sell IP phones, wireless access points and controllers.

  • Dispose of Old Servers for Free
