Ewaste and data management solutions

E-waste and Data Management Solutions

Every year, Australians buy 4.4 million computers. An estimate forecasts that “at best” only 27% will be recycled!

BACS is committed to breaking this wasteful practice and improving the e-waste recycling model. BACS solution is to divert e-waste from landfill and to securely and ethically dispose of IT data devices!

We have teamed up with the most ethically known e-waste industry organisations to provide a secure and reliable e-waste service.

BACS now provides a range of services to ensure “End of Use” e-waste can be efficiently recycled and "End of Life" e-waste is disposed off ethically.

BACS e-waste services are available nationwide including Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, Canberra, Brisbane, Adelaide, Hobart and Darwin as well as most regional areas.

Pickup "End Of Life" E-waste

  • BACS can install e-waste bins at approved customer areas. 
  • BACS operations staff will monitor the bins to ensure they are removed and replaced in a timely fashion to ensure service continuity.
  • End of life is the term used for IT equipment that is to be dismantled and recycled because the technology is no longer viable.

Pickup "End Of Use" E-waste

  • BACS can organise an ongoing service to pickup "end of use" e-waste.
  • Where BACS has an onsite presence, the technical cleaner will routinely organise removal.
  • End of use is the terminology used for IT equipment that is to be re-purposed and reused.

Data Management

  • The Notifiable Data Breach scheme requires Business and Government to notify affected individuals and the Australian Information Commissioner about ‘eligible data breaches’ if the access, disclosure or loss is likely to result in serious harm to any of the individuals to whom the information relates as stated in the Privacy Amendment (Notifiable Data Breaches) Act 2017. Consequently businesses and Govt departments are now obligated to ensure their data has “audit trail evidence” and that it has been taken to the grave without 3rd party tampering.
  • Data Erasure or Data Media Destruction is the only reliable method by the Business entity of managing the removal of data that is no longer required or it is no longer entitled to hold.
  • Data Erasure

    • BACS uses recognised software such as Blancco to effectively wipe the drive of all information.
    • Blancco is the default software for data erasure. It is certified as the preferred software for government departments and has been tested, certified, approved and recommended by major governing bodies around the world including the Australian Department of Defence (DoD).
    • It erases to DoD 5220.22-M ECE and 19 other data erasure and data wiping standards, to meet security and regulatory compliance requirements.
    • Blancco works on a licence, certified eraser and report certificate for every drive it erases.
  • Data Media Destruction

    If you feel the need for physical data destruction BACS provides a disc crusher or shredder service to comprehensively destroy your data media. With a crushing force of more than 10,000 lbs (4.5 metric ton) these devices ensure data and the holding media are rendered completely unusable and certified as End Of Life.
