At the collection point staff will tag each item including all data mediums and miscellaneous boxes with a specific job number; they will prepare an inventory detailing approximate specification and quantities of the equipment which also serves as transfer of risk for all Data sensitive assets. Two inventory sheets will be signed by the client representative, one copy is kept by the client and the other filed with the collection forms and details.
Staff will issue the client with the appropriate Environmental waste/hazardous waste transfer note.
An electronic copy is also provided with the full asset report on completion of the job.
