The Benefits of e-Waste Recycling
At Protec, we help our customers safely and securely recycle their e-Waste.
Recycling your business’ e-Waste (old electronics, including computers, TVs, fax machines, and even cellular phones) has a number of benefits. Not only is it good for the environment, but it’s also good for your brand.
Additionally, recycling e-Waste maximizes the recovery value of your electronics and maintains your data security.
Add Environmental Responsibility Your Brand
Environmental responsibility plays a larger role in customer’s purchase decisions than ever before—it’s no longer just something nice to talk about on your website.
A study in 2017 found that 92% of customers surveyed would, “be more likely to trust a company that supports social or environmental issues.”
That same study found that “88% would be more loyal to a company that supports social or environmental issues.”
Recycling your e-Waste builds your brand in the mind of your customers and gives them one more great reason to work with you.
Protec Helps You Protect Your Alabama Community
It’s estimated that, “80 to 85% of electronic products are discarded in landfills or incinerators.”
E-Waste in landfills release a number of rare earth toxins into our soil and water, and when incinerated add even more toxins to our air through the release of greenhouse gases and other gases.
When you recycle your e-Waste with Protec, we safely recycle it all, ensuring that old electronics are kept out of landfills and incinerators.
Maximize the Recovery Value of Your Electronics
Recycling your old electronics doesn’t always mean filling up a waste barrel with discarded peripherals, cables, and hard drives.
Protec can work with your company to remarket IT assets as you retire older computer equipment. Our ITAD (Information Technology Asset Disposition) services can purchase and consign laptops and towers, Apple and PC products, networking equipment, and even standalone copiers. What we can do depends on the age and condition of the equipment.
Depending on how often your company needs to recycle e-Waste, this technology asset disposition may turn into a new revenue stream, where old-but-still-serviceable parts or units are resold to markets where your outdated machines find new life and continue in service.
Maintain Data Security
According to the National Association of Information Destruction (NAID), “Of devices resold in regular commerce channels, 40% still contained personally identifiable information (PII).”
Maintaining the security of your business’ data is a critical component of keeping your competitive edge secure. Working with a NAID AAA Certified recycler like Protec Recycling ensures that your critical data is destroyed safely and securely.
