Take a look around any room in your business and do a silent count of the number of electronic devices you see: computers, monitors, mobiles, and so on.
At some point, you’ll replace each of these devices. So will every business. For your company, though, it’s your choice where the old electronics go and how they are treated.
When you decide to use a Ventura e-waste and product destruction service, you’re helping to save the world… and you don’t even have to put on a cape and tights. See why.
What Is E-waste?
Simply put, e-waste is the tons of electronic products that individuals and businesses discard instead of recycle or allow to be salvaged. Some companies throw these items away because they don’t know there is an alternative. Others are unaware of the consequences. At Confidential Data Destruction Company, we support customers with a variety of electronic products, including:
- Devices that hold information, like laptops, CDs, and DVDs.
- Electronics with sensitive components, such as TVs and old monitors.
- Communication devices like mobile phones.
These electronic devices and media may wear out or become outdated with time, but simply throwing them away creates a serious environmental hazard. It’s also a potential danger to your business.
Why You’ll Be a Hero
Confidential Data Destruction Company removes hazards and separates reusable parts from electronic components before we shred them. With our service, you’ll…
Prevent exposure. Ventura e-waste and product destruction services protect the environment. Items such as old CRT monitors from TVs and computers contain high enough concentrations of lead that they may create a hazard once they reach a trash heap.
Limit landfills. The EPA found in 2009 that e-waste, such as printers, scanners, and cell phones, totaled about 2.37 million short tons. Throwing out these products creates problems for future generations and can impact the land and air as they decompose.
Save energy. Shredding and recycling materials conserves significant energy in manufacturing. Recycling 1 million laptops preserves electricity equivalent to the amount that 3,657 U.S. homes use in a year.
E-waste and product destruction also eliminate traces of sensitive data that can remain even after you wipe the memory of electronic devices. Our shredding equipment renders these products completely unrecoverable, helps protect your business, secures the personal information of your employees and customers, and does something good for the environment. Pretty heroic.
