Responsible Electronics Recycling

SecurShred uses a Responsible Recycling (R2) and OSHA approved recycler located in the U.S. for the disposal of all E-cycle goods. A “cradle to grave” tracking system assures that E-waste does not end up in the hands of other companies, landfills or illegally exported to other nations.

In 2009, 5 million tons of electronics were in storage and 2.37 million tons of electronics were ready for end-of-life management. Out of that, only 25% was collected for recycling. (www.epa.gov, October 2011) Many people are misinformed or not properly educated on what to do with their old technology once it has become obsolete and is ready for the scrap pile. Did you know it is illegal to landfill computers and electronics? Computers, monitors, IPod’s, phones, etc. all have hazardous materials in them such as lead, mercury, and chromium. A study found that "...residents living in rural areas less than a mile from an electronic scrap processing site were 1.6 times more likely to develop lung cancer...". (Resource Recyling 2013)

Besides being harmful to our environment there are now strict fines associated with landfilling computer equipment. “If your discarded computers or monitors are found to be contaminating a landfill, your firm can be traced through the serial numbers recorded when they were originally purchased and you could be held liable for the cleanup and/or given a substantial fine” (Legal Management, June 2007).
