8/31/2018 – There have been drastic changes in the recycling industry during the past year. Local and international markets for recyclable material have dropped up to 50%-90% on some commodities. The markets are no where near where they use to be. Due to these uncontrollable changes, Beyond Surplus has chosen to reduce the material that we would normally process.

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.

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.
