Nationwide Corporate Computer Recycling service
"The improper disposal of electronic assets creates significant financial and regulatory noncompliance risks." - Gartner Research
Andover offers EPA compliant (federal and state) computer recycler service. Managing eWaste (i.e. - CRT monitor recycling, phone recycling, computer recycling) is a problem complicated by the risks if one does not manage the disposal to mitigate risk. Federal and state agencies such as the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) increased willingness to prosecute for violations complicates the corporate eWaste problem even more.
Four common solutions to mitigate the financial risks that are offered by many vendors are:
Andover is committed to solving the issue within the law. When shipping equipment to a foreign location is an option, Andover will leave that choice to its client. For any equipment with zero marketable value, Andover will ensure that the equipment is destroyed in order with EPA state and federal regulation.
Where the Computer Recycling problem begins
75% of all phased out corporate computer equipment is immediately moved to storage. There are simple reasons that this occurs:
Typically, after a few years, the computer equipment storage area looks more similar to a corporate computer junkyard or a parts depot. The costs are larger in terms of management, storage cost and potential asset recovery value.
Passing the problem to another via donation does not mitigate the risk. Donation is generally the most expensive way to eliminate financial risk. Donated computer equipment tends to be resold rather than used. If used, it is generally recycled after very short periods of use. If the equipment is subsequently disposed or resold to less-than-scrupulous resellers, your name could potentially remain on the chain of ownership.
Andover works with firms to ensure that the management of eWaste is accomplished to mitigate any financial risks to the firm. Andover maintains a no-landfill policy and works to protect its clients by destroying equipment without worth with an EPA compliant method.
