Recycled electronics available for employees to buy back

It happens quite often: companies we are working with often have employees who are interested in purchasing used corporate property. Whether it’s a laptop or a printer, a photocopier or a calculator, we can assist our customers in offering and implementing an Employee Buy Back program.

We are proud of our ability to offer as much as 65% of our collected electronics back to the marketplace, refurbished and working, and at deeply discounted prices. Employee Buy Back Programs are one way this is done. Buy Back Programs are customized for the individual companies, but most of the time it works something like this:

  1. A company, school district, services firm or other organization donates palletized electronic equipment to us for data destruction and recycling.
  2. A complete inventory of each piece of equipment, its condition, its need for data destruction, and its resale value (if any) is compiled.
  3. Data destruction services are performed. Computers that have had their memories digitally erased are refurbished for future use and assigned a value.
  4. Our experienced sales staff works to ensure that the highest return is recovered for any materials we work with.
  5. Items available for Employee Buy Back are posted on a secure site for access by the customer’s employees.
  6. OceanTech handles all auction/purchase communications, financial transactions and delivery of purchased items.
  7. All equipment is sold “as is,” with no warranties or service plans.

The process of decommissioning a data center is riddled with logistical intricacies, and among these, planning for the disposition of retired assets stands out as a crucial aspect. The dismantling of data center equipment without a well-thought-out strategy for reuse, remarketing, or secure disposal can lead to a host of problems.
