Data Recycling

How You Can Help

Re-Use Data

Create New Document

Don't create a new file if you have an old one you are no longer using. For example, an out-of-date Microsoft Word document can easily be re-used in place of a new one.

Use the backs of pages as well as the front, by switching your software into 'facing page' display mode. For software which does not allow this, modern flat-screen monitors help provide convenient access to the rear of the document.

Send Us Your Unwanted Data

Send your unwanted data to us and we will recycle it online and make it available for others to download.

Delete Data Responsibly

Use your local data disposal facility. There are more of these appearing all the time. A data recycle bin looks the same as a can- or bottle-bin, but will be clearly marked "Data". If your local recycling depot does not have a data-recycling bin, contact your local council.

Use Data Insulation and Recycle Airborne Data

Data Insulation

Data which is expelled into the air can be recycled using home and office airborne data purifiers which extract data from the air and save it onto removable media such as compact flash cards or memory sticks.

This works most effectively when the room has been data-insulated, otherwise much of the data will escape through walls and windows.

Data insulation also helps to preserve the security of your unwanted data. Although it is very difficult to reconstruct airborne data into usable files, it has been shown to be possible.

Place Wireless and Bluetooth Devices Closer Together When In Use

This will minimise the amount of 'stray' data lost between the devices.
