A: Recycling is utilizing old resources to make new goods, simply put; it’s finding innovative ways of modernization. This means using less energy, less landfills for dumping, and less resources. This translates to mean less toxins in our air and water and results in a better environment for us and for our future generations.
A: If properly disposed of, e-waste is not hazardous. According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency, e-waste is an issue of resource conservation. In short, electronics contain many re-usable and valuable raw materials. However, if improperly disposed of or illegally dumped, electronics can pose a serious risk to the environment.
A: The short answer is, YES! When it comes to recycling USTRG focuses on two key issues:
– The first key issue is data security and destruction. USTRG ensures that sensitive data doesn’t fall in the wrong hands, by using the highest standards in the industry for data sanitization. For more information see our Data Removal page.
– The second key issue is proper recycling and disposal in accordance to EPA, SERI and RIOS standards. Unlike other big name companies that claim they are recycling by keeping what’s salvageable, and dumping the rest to improper recyclers or sending it to third world countries with little to no environmental laws; USTRG does it’s recycling locally. Anything we don’t recycle to it’s end stage in-house, is all processed by R2 certified downstream vendors.
