Why should we shred IT?
Any electronic equipment that holds information should be destroyed to ensure that it does not fall into the wrong hands, much like your paper documents.
Secondly, if the equipment is owned by a business, the business should be following the WEEE directive where possible to show they are doing their utmost to follow the regulation when it comes to disposing of unwanted items.
This also stops items from going to landfill and releasing contaminants into the soil. Electronic equipment is full of harmful contaminants that are no good for the environment or ourselves.
