Honor the Environment
Easily. Ethically. Beneficially.
How can we be good stewards of our environment when more than 500 million personal computers are projected to become obsolete in the United States each year — and most of those PCs will end up in landfills?
Electronic equipment is the fastest-growing portion of the municipal solid waste stream, according to a national nonprofit organization committed to environmental health. As the average life of a computer spirals down to a mere two years, consumer electronic products account for 40 percent of the lead found in landfills.
Environmentally sustainable. Practically implemental. Economically viable. Socially responsible.
Turn waste into a valuable resource. TechR2 maintains a Zero Landfill Policy, supporting 100% recycling of valueless technology.
Reusing items — By repairing them, donating them to charity and community groups, or remarketing them — you help reduce waste. Reusing products, when possible, is even better than recycling because the item’s do not need to be reprocessed before they can be used again.
Storage? Short sighted.
Compromises security. Takes up space. Tax headaches.
Some studies estimate that as much as 75% of old, used equipment is in storage, where it takes up space and becomes more obsolete and less valuable. Storage and disposal of computers can also compromise the security of any data or licensed software programs contained on machines’ hard drives.
Hazardous chemicals. Poisonous waste. Potential public relations nightmare.
Landfill volumes cannot be contained and the breakdown of chemical components in landfills creates toxic substances that contaminate our drinking water, farmlands and even schoolyards.
Electronic equipment may contain lead, chromium, cadmium, mercury and other dangerous metals. Properly handling and disposing of these materials is essential to protecting our environment.
For older or nonfunctional equipment, we perform a fully EPA-compliant disposal. Our clients receive a complete Waiver of Liability for all disposed and recycled pieces.
- Guaranteed full compliance with all EPA, federal, state and local regulations
- Certificate of Destruction
- Detailed documentation (equipment inventory by serial number)
TechR2 recycles 100% of all valueless technology so none of it ends up in landfills anywhere — in the United States or abroad. Gone for good.
