The need for environmentally friendly electronics recycling is growing because of the rising amount of obsolete electronic devices. If left to rust in the landfills, these devices can release toxic substances into the earth and atmosphere, causing soil contamination and air pollution as well as contributing to global warming. Sadly, many people as well as businesses continue to ignore this fact.
As an asset disposition and certified data destruction company committed to green technologies, OceanTech knows the hazards caused by electronic wastes very well. Every year millions of retired computers, laptops, monitors, printers, cell phones and other electronic devices are discarded by companies across the United States. Many of these devices end up in landfills.
Environmentally Friendly Electronics Recycling
But things are changing. With growing awareness about pollution, many large companies are turning to environmentally friendly electronics recycling. When it comes to electronics recycling, one service provider that large companies across North America trust is OceanTech. Our record is impeccable. We have never been accused of irresponsible recycling or fined for violating any environmental law. Our R2 certification combined with a zero landfill policy, ensures that every decommissioned electronic device is handled in strict compliance with national and international standards.
A case in point is the solar power system our Eden Prairie, MN, branch has installed on their property. The system produces most of the electricity they need using nothing but sunlight. As well as being environmentally friendly, it has reduced their electricity bill to almost zero. What’s more remarkable is that the solar panels as well as other components of the system were made using recycled components. This is just one example of how OceanTech is doing its bit to save the environment.
Our approach to environmentally friendly electronics recycling is guided by our desire to ensure the clients’ safety and security first. Once we receive an electronic item, we record its make, model number, serial number and other important information. We then check for the presence of storage media and destroy the data in our lab using specialized software.
After the data on the storage media is destroyed, the owner is issued a data destruction certificate. But that is not the end of the story. Many of the repurposed devices are sold to buyers who are willing to pay good prices for them. Because of our very large customer base, we are known for our ability to return 2 – 3 times more for decommissioned hardware. It’s not surprising that large companies across the United States highly value our services.
Thus, OceanTech is the safest option for companies concerned about the state of the environment. We are known for the highest standard of data destruction and electronic recycling that you can get anywhere in the world. We offer our environmentally friendly electronics recycling services throughout the United States of America, including all the major cities such as, Minneapolis, New York City, Dallas, Los Angeles, Chicago, Miami, and hundreds more.
