Many people may believe that simply discarding a computer or electronic device is safe. However, when companies fail to make sure that their devices are being properly recycled, they may lose control of their proprietary data. This could lead to personnel problems, copyright problems, or even serious cases of identity theft based on the sensitivity of the data on the discarded machine. Todays highly digital environment means that everyone needs to pay close attention to the newest methods in electronics recycling.

R2 Recycling, a leader in recycling is prepared to help companies and organizations of all kinds, from schools to businesses and government entities, when they need to securely dispose of their electronic equipment. The recycler has a national coverage area, meaning that their services are convenient for everyone.  By partnering with R2 Certified recyclers, R2 Recycling makes sure your electronics are recycled the right way to secure your data and reduce waste.

A Secure Chain- Here is what you need to know

R2 Recycling (along with their nationwide partners that follow the R2 standard) makes sure that all personal and business computers and electronics are kept secure from the moment they enter their possession to the time of their dismantling and recycling. If you are considering the disposal of electronics or computer equipment, a secure supply chain is a must, according to R2 Recycling.

With R2 Recycling, or any recycling firm you use, the entire supply chain must be secure, with several different options available to you for convenient disposal. For example, R2 Recycling, in conjunction with their R2 certified partners, offers drop boxes that can be stationed at client sites, meaning that organizations that are accumulating a large number of recyclable devices over time will be able to get their items packed away securely. R2 & their partners who are R2 certified will also pick-up electronic equipment from anywhere in the United States, and customers may bring their items to the warehouse themselves and drop them off. Regardless of who you choose to recycle your electronics and computers, it is imperative that you have a secure supply chain to keep your data protected.

Logistics is another crucial piece of the puzzle when it comes to recycling electronic equipment and computers. The R2 Recycling warehouse is protected, and companies can be assured that their data is safe while their items are waiting to be recycled.

High-Tech Data Destruction

R2 Recycling and their R2 certified partners across the nation have a high level of technical skill sets them apart from the competition. Rather than focusing on retrieving recyclable materials from the discarded items, the priority is data security. Several advanced methods are used to permanently remove data from computers, smartphones, and other electronic equipment.

To this end, R2 Recycling (which partners with companies across the nation that follow the R2 standard) uses state-of-the-art data destruction methods that are also used by the U.S. Department of Defense. If a hard drive wipe fails, the item will be fed into a top-of-the-line electronics shredder. The shredder produces scraps that are unable to transmit data. Data can never be recovered from a device that has gone through the shredder.

The Global Problem of E-Waste

E-waste can not only cause serious data breaches, but it is also bad for the environment. Today’s digital devices are made with an obsolescence point in mind, and they are harder to repair as they get older. In addition, many electronic devices are not built to stringent quality standards.

E-waste can be polluting since it contains heavy metals and other contaminants. When a piece of electronic equipment is properly recycled, the impact on the environment is contained. Partnering with a recycler like R2 which only works with other recyclers nationwide who follow the R2 standard is one way to help limit the impact that e-waste has on our surroundings.

Electronics Recycling Collection Events

Large businesses and government entities are not the only source of e-waste. Households and small businesses also need to securely dispose of their old electronics. R2 Recycling’s certified partners offers e-waste collection events where each item is recycled for an affordable price. This can be a big help for cities and towns that need to keep dangerous waste out of their incinerators and landfills, as well as keeping the area clean and free of trash.

A Focus on Customer Service

All employees are screened to make sure that they are capable of providing the highest level of customer service. Dealing with an electronics recycler should not be difficult, every company’s goal should be to make the process as easy as possible for the customer.

National Coverage

R2 Recycling’s national reach available by partnering with R2 certified recyclers is unique and makes it possible for clients with many locations to take care of their electronics recycling in one central location. Simplifying the task of dealing with e-waste can allow business leaders the opportunity to focus on more pressing business.

Knowing How to Preserve Data Security

While some companies may remain unaware of the extreme data risks posed by discarded electronics, companies that understand how their business could be impacted by a breach need to have their items recycled.

Companies that want to make both data security and the environment their priorities should consider working with R2 Recycling, who are committed to good stewardship of the environment and works with partners around the nation that follow the R2 standard. R2 Recycling has a great reputation for data security and customer service, making it easy for any firm to take care of its dangerous e-waste problems. R2 Recycling can also help by putting on e-waste collection programs and dealing with IT asset management.
