The Final Countdown: 4 Steps To A Seamless Data Center Demolition

By | Critical Power Products & Services, Equipment Disposal, Hazardous Waste Disposal, Recycle Equipment

Is your company migrating to a cloud? Are you consolidating? Are you relocating or collocating? Either way, you’ll need to start the process of eliminating obsolete and unneeded equipment from your current data center. This begins with an IT asset disposition or ITAD plan. Making an ITAD plan can help you to responsibly dispose of or recycle the data center equipment you don’t need.

Managing Your ITAD Plan


Data center demolition requires a detailed ITAD plan, whether you’re completely overhauling your system, or just consolidating for efficiency. Here are some helpful steps to planning your ITAD strategy.

1. Identify What You Need To Dispose Of And Recycled.data center pic for webiste


Here’s where it’s important to hire a company that offers proper disposal, recycling and data sanitation services. You need to reconfigure and consolidate to maintain efficiency, but you should never sacrifice security to do it.

2. Off-Site Or On-Site Data Wiping?

Your ITAD plan should involve data wiping, but should that data be wiped on-site or off-site? On-site data wiping is more expensive but allows you to oversee the process. Off-site is less costly, however, you cannot oversee the process, but you do receive verification. This decision all depends on how much you trust your data center demolition company and the sensitivity of the information your company stores.

3. Write Your Plan Down

Your ITAD strategy should be written and detailed. It should have a beginning, middle and most importantly, an end. Many times, if you haven’t planned your data center demolition, the process can drag on. This can cost precious time and money.

4. Find A Trusted ITAD Company That Can Take On Your Data Center Demolition

Finding an ITAD company you can trust for your data center demolition is fundamental. Make sure your ITAD company offers environmentally responsible practices, recycling, reselling of refurbished equipment (for you to sell, as well as buy) and a long history of excellent customer service. Remember, communication is key, so if they don’t have good customer service, it can be challenging to communicate your plan or voice your concerns.

Removing an old transformer can be costly and time-consuming, but ultimately it’s a necessary evil if you want your business to grow. However, there are ways that you can save money and even make money on a transformer removal if you consider recycling your transformer.

Consider Transformer Recycling

Transformer recycling ensures that your old transformer is safely removed and the salvageable parts are reused. Here are some services you need to consider when you’re looking for a company to recycle your transformer. These services will save you time and money, and save the environment as well.

Transformer Recycling Services That Can Save You Money

Onsite Teardown And Recycling

Most transformer recycling companies relocate a transformer to what we call a “laydown area.” This is where they tear down the transformer and salvage the recyclable parts. Transporting a transformer is extremely costly, so you should look for a company who offers onsite teardown and recycling services.

Paying You For Your Old Transformer

That’s right! You can find a company who uses transformers and will actually pay you for your surplus. This can take a significant chunk out of the cost of your transformer removal, you could break even or make money on the transaction. This is a win-win situation all around.

Other Services To Look For:

These services may not save a significant amount of money in the long run, but they will make the process smoother and easier to handle, which saves you time. And as we all know, time is money!

Make Sure The Company You Choose Offers:

  • Oil recycling
  • Transformer recycling of various voltages, from 1 kva to 1000 mva
  • Transformer recycling of various types, such as Dry Type, Oil filled, Pole Mount, Pad Mount and Substation Units
  • An Environmentally Sensitive and Safe process

You May End Up Better Off Than You Were Before You Recycled Your Transformer

It’s true. You probably thought that removing and disposing of your transformer would set your business back, but if you choose the right company and services, you can come out financially ahead.
