SLS uses documented defined processes to make certain all data is destroyed. SLS’ audited processes provide peace of mind, accountability and assurance that your company’s privacy and corporate reputation remain intact when managing your obsolete inventory.
Our guarded e-recycling processing facilities are access controlled and monitored, ensuring maximum protection of your sensitive data prior to destruction. All products are stored and secured until processing begins.
