COMPUTER RECYCLING & E-WASTE DISPOSAL PROCESS:
Have you ever wondered what happens to the electronics you recycle with us? Here is the process for our computer recycling & e-waste disposal program:
Data Erasure: We ensure all data on the devices is thoroughly erased to protect your privacy.
Refurbishing & Reuse: We clean up, reformat, and prepare a device for a new life if it can be refurbished and reused. Our aim is to maximize reuse whenever possible.
Salvage Working Parts: We carefully evaluate devices unsuitable for refurbishing to identify any working parts that can be salvaged. We test these parts, list them for sale, and often find new homes for them through platforms like eBay.
Responsible E-Scrap Disposal: Parts that cannot be sold or reused but contain valuable metals are separated, boxed, and sold to certified eScrap buyers who extract the precious metals responsibly. Our eScrap buyer commits to practicing landfill-free methods.
Proper Recycling: We box and transport unusable components such as power supplies, broken screens, and other non-functional parts to an electronics recycler in Dallas. We ensure that we handle these materials appropriately.
We invest both labor and materials in each step of this process. The costliest parts are separating components for eScrap and shipping the unusable waste to Dallas. To keep this service accessible, we rely on the revenue generated by reselling materials, covering labor and shipping costs. Our goal is to serve our community, rather than make a profit.
WE GUARANTEE DATA DESTRUCTION!
Destroyed Hard Drive
We recycle all hard drives in accordance with the NIST 800-88 Data Destruction Standards, which have replaced the older DoD 5220.22-M Standard.
A Certificate of Destruction is available for a small fee when requested.
