It is that time of year when our residential electronics recycling programs kick into high gear. With all of the Earth Day events, citywide cleanups, and workplace events, we are hustling through every day to get it all done. This is however one of our favorite times of year. It is great to be able to deal with people and talk with them face to face about recycling and data security. From interviews on TV morning shows to Earth Day events where we can showcase our onsite data hard drive crusher we love it all. We have always crushed our customers’ hard drives onsite in front of them so that they can see with their own eyes that their data has been properly destroyed. Over and over particularly in our residential events we hear comments such as "We are so glad you are here doing what you do". We really appreciate that. That is what keeps us going! We want to show our customer’s first hand that they can trust us to safely and securely recycle their computer electronics. We try not to charge for recycling most items but when we do these fees go towards the proper recycling practices of responsible electronics recycling.
Honestly it has become difficult to keep our company profitable while handling TV's and other difficult materials such as CRT's and ensuring that they are recycled responsibly. But since we started this company 10 years ago out of a garage, we have always gone the extra mile to make sure our recycling practices meet proper standards. Several years ago we obtained our C2 certification which is monitored annually by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality to make sure we handle all material in the most environmentally friendly way. We analyze all computer equipment for reuse as it comes in our door. We want to reuse more equipment that we have to dismantle. This is a tricky balance and one that is constantly looked at by our staff. Over the years we have found ways to reuse equipment that was previously dismantled. By continuously examining our procedures we can build a more profitable company that can be around for many years to come to process the hundreds of thousands of tons of e-waste we process for our communities each year.
Thank you for recycling with us and giving us good feedback. Each year we are adding more companies and corporations to our list who are putting on electronics recycling events for their employees. We love this trend. More and more companies are seeing that their employees appreciate the opportunity to recycle their electronics and appreciate their companies who sponsor them. We've also seen more HOA's reaching out to us to put on recycling events for their residents. Keep up the good work and bring us all those electronics and computers. We love our work!
