Our Tape Disposal Process

Today, at our Roseheyworth Business Park site we have an unrivalled array of Automated Tape Libraries, drives and a range of tape management software and as a result, we are able to offer you more than just a supply of tapes.

We are also UKAS accredited ISO9001 for our Quality and Processes,  ISO14001 for our Environmental Goals and ISO27001 for Information Security as we strongly believe that this gives our business solid foundations for growth and also provides reassurance to our customers of our commitment to quality.

Our process removes all data from your tapes.

Here’s how it works, step-by-step.

  • 1

    Secure collection from your site

    Using a GPS-tracked ADISA approved vehicle, we will collect your tapes and transport them securely from your site to ours, making no stops. Direct delivery means security delivery.

  • 2

    Tapes checked before and after transit

    Our trained professionals will inspect your tape media before they’re loaded into the secure vehicle and after they’re unloaded back at our site, to ensure every tape is accounted for.

  • 3

    VOL-ID numbers scanned and confirmation sent

    When your tapes arrive on site, we’ll scan the VOL-ID numbers and send you a confirmation that your tapes have arrived and are secure in our facilities.

  • 4

    Tapes chip scanned and serial numbers recorded

    Each tape is then chip scanned to record the individual serial number of the catridge, to allow tape-by-tape tracking throughout the entire process.

  • 5

    Tapes are stored securely until erasure process

    We store all tapes securely in our vault, which is protected with several layers of physical security, as well as 24/7 monitoring and CCTV.

  • 6

    Each tape individually erased and chip scanned

    Each tape is individually erased using our patent-pending (Patent Application No. 1610940.7) process, before being chip scanned to be 100% sure that the process has been fully successful.

  • 7

    Data destruction and green contribution certificates sent

    By disposing of your tapes through the Insurgo process, you’ll receive data destruction and green contribution certificates, to give you extra peace of mind.
