FAQs

Here are frequently asked questions on the services that we provide.

Why should I take my old electronics to an electronic recycling center?

When it comes to disposing of old electronics, electronic recycling centers provide the most responsible and environmentally friendly solution. Electronic recycling is a process that repurposes electronic components such as computers and mobile phones into new, usable items like new computers or cell phones. By taking your old electronics to a recycling center, you will be preventing them from entering landfills where they can cause considerable environmental damage due to hazardous materials such as lead and mercury. In fact, research shows that throwing away an old computer can contribute more than 4 pounds of greenhouse gases into the environment!

Why should hard drives be destroyed by professionals?

Data security: improper disposal of old hard drives can lead to severe data breaches.

The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) is responsible for enforcing the “Disposal Rule” which requires companies to properly dispose of personally identifiable information (PII) on computer hard drives or other digital media. The goal is to reduce the risk of data breaches and identity theft by holding companies accountable for their handling of consumer information. This rule sets the crosshairs of the FTC on the computer-recycling, IT Asset Disposal and digital media destruction process of an organization.

Can you recycle iPads?

Yes, you can absolutely recycle your old iPad. iPad recycling or any other electronic device is one of the best ways to reduce waste and limit environmental damage. The benefits of recycling your old device are countless—not only does it keep gadgets out of landfills, but it also helps extend the life cycle of materials used in manufacturing new products and decreases the need to harvest more raw materials from the planet’s resources.

Must the equipment be on a pallet before being picked up?

NO, The best possible way to transport LARGE QUANTITY of obsolete computer equipment is on pallets. Gaylord (Bulk) boxes (a 4-cube, heavy cardboard box that is filled on a pallet) provide the best stability.
We have found that neatly stacking components, even monitors, on a pallet will be stable for transport if shrink-wrapped well.

While having the equipment packed or palletized prior to pick up is ideal and results in a quick pick up, we know some businesses are located in High rise buildings, office parks, or locations without a loading dock or have no Pallets or Boxes to prepare the equipment for pick up. This is not a problem, Let us know, we come prepared with all the required equipment to safely remove the equipment from your building to our truck and to our warehouse.
