Why should I recycle computers and electronics? For commercial entities, Colorado State Law requires computer and electronic equipment be treated as hazardous waste once it is retired. Electronics contain hazardous materials such as lead, cadmium, broken glass and mercury which can leach into water supplies if not disposed of properly. We are aware that these machines may contain sensitive data and it is handled accordingly so that this data will be unrecoverable.
What do you recycle? We accept all office equipment including, but not limited to, printers, computers, monitors, fax machines and desk top copiers. If you see something you are interested in getting rid of, just give us a call and ask if we can take it.
What will you do with my equipment once you pick it up? Your equipment will come back to our facility where we strip down any printers for their parts. Then it is all loaded up and hauled off to a recycling center that has the capability to wipe data clean and destroy hard drives. They are even used by the federal government for disposal of computers for their heavy security needs!
How do I make sure the security of my data is not compromised? If someone would like to recycle computers we are very respectful of the privacy of data. WE WILL NEVER COMPROMISE YOUR DATA. As was mentioned before, your printers will be stripped for parts at our facility, but computers will be hauled to a recycling center that has the capability to wipe data clean and destroy hard drives. They are bonded and insured and are used by the federal government for disposal of THEIR computers due to their complete commitment to data security.
Does it cost anything? Why do you charge a fee? We are charging for our time and labor to handle the equipment as well as to cover the cost of the recycling process. We are charged a straight fee per unit we bring in, and that varies based on the type of machine, weight, etc. We are providing a service so that you don’t have to spend time finding someone to take your equipment away. It augments our service to you, our customer, so you can forget about the headaches of what to do with the old equipment. It also shields you from the liabilities and costs associated with improper disposal of electronic waste.
