As technology needs evolve and change, proactively planning for the removal of aging assets—in a secure and sustainable manner—is critical. Even the most experienced organizations are challenged by increasing security and environmental concerns, a growing number of business processes, and an extensive list of regulations associated with technology systems removal. In addition, companies now often have an environment sustainability program specifically for their IT organization. Major elements of these strategies can include responsible retiring, removal and disposal of IT equipment, and refurbishing IT to prevent the need for disposal.
HPE Financial Services understands these goals and offers services designed to help companies achieve financial vitality and properly manage legacy assets.
More than just IT equipment removal, HPE Asset Upcycling Services include data cleansing and environmentally responsible removal, upcycling or recycling. With global capabilities, HPEFS delivers these services consistently around the world.
HPEFS are experts in managing the retirement of:
- Networking equipment
- PCs and laptops
- Mobile devices
- Other forms of technology
HPEFS handles equipment from HPE, HP and all other 3rd party manufacturers of data center and workplace assets.
Our experts work with you, helping to manage the complex process of retiring your technology. Our goal is to minimize the effort required by you to refresh your technology and allow you to focus on what matters—innovation and driving your business forward. We offer solutions that help you manage your technology on a continuous basis, across multiple locations around the world. As you refresh your equipment, we can help manage the end of use upcycling throughout the process. We can also do a one—time takeout of unused assets, typically for smaller, less complex IT organizations.
When you put your unneeded assets through our asset upcycling services, our lifecycle experts will refurbish and remarket the equipment for a second useful life.
With revenue sharing capabilities, this circular economy approach benefits both the environment and your bottom line, and can enable you to extract value from unneeded IT to supplement your budget for innovative projects.
HPE Asset Upcycling Services deliver a flexible, consistent process for retiring IT equipment. We can help you build a customized plan for your business’ unique needs and navigate through the applicable data security and environmental laws.

Data security is a critical part of every asset retirement process, and HPE can provide the service to ensure that all information is either overwritten or the media destroyed. Based on customer requirements, that is done in one of three ways, either at your site or at our Technology Renewal Centers:
- Cleared using industry—standard data eradication methods
- Destroyed using high—power magnetic degaussing (hard disks)
- Destroyed using physical shredding of recording media (hard disks and SSD’s)
