Established in 1995, Tier 1 is one of the UK’s most experienced IT disposal specialists with a core competency in the secure and ethical disposal of end of lifecycle IT equipment. A totally independent company, Tier 1 was one of the very first organisations to pass the ADSIA standard. We offer a totally managed solution that covers secure collection, guaranteed data sanitisation, asset re-marketing and environmental disposal only as a final option.

Trusted by a wide sector of major corporate organisations and central Government departments to handle some of the largest IT disposal projects in the UK, Tier 1′s data security guarantee, combined with industry leading levels of revenue return, comes closest to solving the ‘cost versus risk’ conundrum faced by everyone with a responsibility for IT asset disposal.

For further peace of mind, Tier 1 is a Blancco ‘Gold’ partner and carries out all our work within both the ADISA standard and HM Government IA Standard No. 5. In addition, our secure premises are regularly audited by the MoD to maintain our ability to handle classified protectively marked data. We have 26 SC cleared engineers and use SC cleared crew as part of our secure logistics and collection process that includes on-site scanning.

Tier 1′s strong emphasis on re-use leads to a situation where almost 90% of our clients do not pay for our services, the majority of whom are guaranteed revenue back. With re-use to the fore, an accent on sustainability has led to Tier 1 and our clients being nationally recognised for the environmental nature of our operation.

Tier 1 bases our past, present and future success on a commitment to continuous improvement and an obligation to innovation that has consistently enabled us to differentiate ourselves from competition in the UK IT disposal industry. These improvements to our service ultimately lead to efficiencies in productivity and security and help to either keep costs down or improve revenue return. Led by a small but dynamic Board of Directors and supported by an experienced and enthusiastic senior management team, Tier 1 has never been afraid to adapt its processes and cope with change in the quest to be the best IT disposal specialist in the UK.

We are proud to be one of the original accredited ADISA members, actively promoting the virtues of an exacting set of standards. Our accreditation gives a clear indication to those involved in IT disposal that Tier 1′s process provides a robust and exhaustively-tested solution. We hope that thanks to the importance Tier 1 places on innovation and a commitment to continuous improvement, our on-going work will provide total peace of mind, commercial appeal and a practical approach to changing technologies. These will ensure Tier 1 is at the forefront of improving what data controllers, IT managers and procurement professionals can reasonably expect when their ICT assets reach the end of their corporate lives.

ADISA accreditation should convince you, but for more proof, give us a call and come and see Tier 1 for yourself.
