E-Waste & Computer RecyclingWhen it is time to dispose of old electronic equipment in Connecticut and the Springfield Massachusetts area we make it easy with our next day computer recycling service. We’ll come to your location and remove and recycle any of the old computers and electronic equipment you don’t need any longer. We will also securely destroy your hard drives.
Why Recycle E-Waste
The proper disposal of computers, televisions, printers, cell phones and other electronic devices is important and required by law because many electronic products contain hazardous materials. Computer monitors and televisions can contain leaded glass. Materials such as beryllium, mercury, cadmium, nickel, zinc, silver and gold were used to manufacture circuit boards. Cadmium can also be found in batteries and mercury can be present in original equipment. It is important to recycle all these items so all hazardous and reusable materials can be recovered for proper disposal or reused.
Recycling E-Waste from Businesses
Connecticut residents can drop off electronics for free but businesses can’t. Companies are responsible to make arrangements for the proper disposal of e-waste on their own. The manufacturers of your computers are not required to pay for the recycling of the electronic devices they produce and you used in your business. Any non-residential locations such as schools, non-profit organizations, or any other non-residential user must also make arrangements on their own for the compliant recycling of computers. E-wastes generated from non-residential sources are regulated under federal and state hazardous waste laws so you need to hire a professional to be compliant.
Hard Drive Destruction Is Part of Any Computer Recycling
Before those computers get recycled the hard drives have to be removed and destroyed. We can take care of that for you. Hard drive destruction is the process of physically crushing or shredding a hard drive so it can no longer be used and the information contained is no longer retrievable. Hard drive destruction is performed by placing a hard drive in a crusher or inserting the hard drive into an industrial shredder where it is completely physically destroyed so that no data can be accessed. We will record the serial number of each hard drive, destroy them, remove and recycle the debris then provide you with a certificate of destruction. We can also remove the hard drives from their housing for an additional fee.
