E-Waste

Destroy it, don't just throw it away.

Electronic waste, or e-waste, is discarded electrical or electronic equipment that may contain sensitive and confidential information. This equipment encompasses product excess, damaged equipment, pharmaceutical supplies, credit cards, uniforms, computers, electronic parts, office machines, telephones, tapes, and compact discs, fax cartridges, television sets, and refrigerators.

Many products must be disposed of to prevent unauthorized sources from using or reselling. Computer hard drives that are not properly erased before the computer is disposed of can be reopened and accessed, exposing sensitive information. Unfortunately credit card numbers, private financial data, account information, and records of online transactions can be accessed by most willing individuals.

E-waste simply includes electronics destined for disposal. However, some electronic scrap components, such as CRTs, may contain contaminants such as lead, cadmium, beryllium, or brominated flame retardant components. Since the disposal of e-waste may involve significant risk to workers and communities, Secure Waste takes great pride in destroying these materials in accordance with all regulatory bodies to avoid unsafe exposure in treatment operations and leaching of material such as heavy metals from landfills or incinerators. Scrap industry and USA EPA officials agree that e-waste materials should be managed with caution.

Secure Waste offers you the opportunity to safely destroy all of your electronic waste while protecting your confidential information and the environment.
