Why Iron Mountain recycling?
Batteries contain a number of heavy metals and toxic chemicals, and disposing of them by the same process as regular rubbish has raised concerns over soil contamination and water pollution. In Europe specifically, battery recycling is growing in importance with lead and cadmium-based batteries posing the most concerns. In fact, nickel-cadmium batteries was banned in Europe in 2009. And, for the first time, lithium-ion has been added to the list of pollutants.
Iron Mountain understands different assets types take different journeys. Some assets when they reach end of usefulness will only involve data wiping. Some assets will need degaussing applied. And in some cases, you may opt for shredding services for destroying media and hard drives.
