How We Recycle and Dispose of Computers
We ensure that all the computers, PCs, and laptops that we receive have their hard drives removed and securely wiped clean to prevent any confidential or private data from being exposed. We wipe hard drives and data through our DOD compliant Wiping Software, which is, guaranteed to destroy any data left on your device and make it impossible to recover. After hard drive removal and data destruction we sort through the computers components and re-purpose what is useful. If the components are too outdated we send them to our R2 down-line for complete scrap disposal.
Why is Computer Re-Use Beneficial?
The production of a PC requires 48 pounds of toxic chemical, 63 gallons of fossil fuels and 396 gallons of water.
Because so much of the energy used over the life cycle of a computer in manufacturing high-tech components, which are usually destroyed in recycling processes to recover raw materials, the energy savings potential of reselling is some 5-20 times greater than recycling…
At California Electronics Recycler we do more to re-purpose electronics than any other electronics “recycling” company, because rather than just recovering the raw materials we first attempt to repair, re-sell, and donate items. We reduce the need for new manufacturing of electronics by giving longer life to used equipment. We resort to recycling as our last option, and when recycling we assure that it is done the right way.
You make a difference, a big difference, one item at a time.
