Asset recovery service

Dispose of old IT assets securely and responsibly with our buy back service.

Dispose of old IT assets securely and responsibly with Datacom's asset recovery service.

Dispose of IT assets securely and responsibly with our sustainable Datacom asset recovery service (DARS).

Whether you're planning to refresh your technology or wish to upgrade some or all of it, trade in your IT assets that are either surplus to your requirements or being replaced by new equipment (depending on the asset and its age) and we'll provide all of the collection and compliant data-wiping services along with ISO-certified data erasure certificates, to keep your data safe.

From mobiles devices, such as tablets, smartphones, and handheld scanners, to notebooks/desktops, servers, and switches/routers, we'll buy back your IT assets.

Datacom is committed to recycling your technology as part of the New Zealand Government's broader outcomes initiative. It's why no stock goes to a landfill. Five per cent of the IT assets that go through our asset recovery service goes to e-waste while the remaining amount gets repurposed. It's also one of the reasons why Datacom was recently awarded the government's all-of-government (AoG) IT hardware panel contract. Get in touch for more information about our all-of-government contracts or to speak to an expert about we may help other government departments.
