E Waste | Electronic Recycling in South Carolin

Although nearly 100% of e-waste is recyclable, unfortunately most of the e-waste produced globally is not recycled. Proper e-waste recycling recovers many nonrenewable resources and prevents thousands of toxic chemicals from seeping into our soil and water. Substances such as lead, cadmium, and mercury found in e-waste are extremely hazardous to our health; they can cause severe damage to our organs and promote the development of cancer. In many developing countries, children are suffering the most from the impact of improper recycling measures. With the number of electronics purchased every year topping over 1.5 billion already, the issues of improper e-waste disposal will only grow worse as the number of electronics purchased continues to increase.

12 Facts Worth Considering about E-Waste.
  1. It is estimated that around 41.8 million tons of e-waste was produced worldwide in 2014. It is estimated that this figure will grow to 49.8 million tons by 2018.
  2. According to research studies from the United Nations, just 16% of the total e-waste produced in 2014 around the world was recycled. This figure ranges to be at best 20% today.
  3. With millions upon millions ending up in landfills, the Environmental Protection Agency estimates we recycle only 8% of our cell phones, 17% of TVs, and 38% of computers.
  4. According to the EPA, if we recycled one million of these cell phones instead, we can recover over 20,000 pounds of copper, 550 pounds of silver, 20 pounds of palladium, and 50 pounds of gold.
  5. Every year, Americans throw out around $60 million worth of silver and gold by sending their phones to the landfill.
  6. Approximately 20-50 million metric tons of e-waste are ending up annually in landfills and improper disposal places.
  7. Old TV’s poorly disposed of can cause leaching of lead into our soil and groundwater. Each TV can contain 4-8 pounds of lead – adding up substantially in its environmental impact internationally.
  8. To manufacture one computer and monitor, 530 pounds of fossil fuel, 48 pounds of chemicals, and 1.5 tons of water are needed.
  9. Estimates show that about 40% of all the heavy metals in our landfills in the United States come from e-waste.
  10. Research from the EPA demonstrates that around 350,000 mobile phones are thrown out daily. This adds up to roughly 152 million annually.
  11. The United Nations approximates that global e-waste has increased as much as 33% in the last 4 years.
  12. While e-waste takes up 2% of the space in American landfills, it produces 70% of our society’s overall toxic waste.

While our clients are often as passionate about ensuring that their electronic waste is safely and legally recycled as we are, ewaste recycling isn’t the only way to keep things a little bit greener around the office. We’ve spoken before about how going green can be good for business, and today we’d like to take a look at a few ways that your workplace might be able to cut down on waste and help the world stay a brighter, greener place.

First off — is your company committed to paper recycling?

Your average plain white sheet of paper is part of a cycle that does serious damage to the environment. As trees are cut down (usually for lumber/construction purposes), the parts of them that aren’t useful for building will be turned into wood chips, which becomes pulp, which in turn becomes the fiber used to create paper.
Between the actual manufacturing of paper and the usual process of bleaching to turn it the bright white we’re used to, the whole process is hard on the environment and not sustainable in the long run. We recommend placing a recycling bin next to every desk, printer, copier, fax machine, and everywhere else that paper might find itself, and encouraging your employees to recycle every scrap of paper. Recycling centers like Ever-Green Recycling can help ensure proper recycling practices.

Encourage the company to embrace a green thumb.

“Office plants” do more than simply brighten up an otherwise plain waiting room or lobby — they’re good for the air you and your employees are breathing! Houseplants provide oxygen and help to clean the office air by pulling in airborne pollutants. Pick out a plant or two for each room and you’ll not only freshen the air, you’ll likely brighten your employees’ day.

Save on power with daily shutdowns.

Many workplaces get into a bad habit of leaving their computers on and running at the end of the day. All that overnight power use adds up, both for the environment and your company’s energy bills. Instead, set a rule that every computer needs to be totally shut down at the end of the day. That way, they won’t keep drawing power while no one’s actually in the office.

Don’t skimp on quality office equipment.

It may look good in the short-term to stick to the cheapest office equipment (such as chairs, conference tables, or even using older or outdated electronics) to save money, but you’ll pay for it in the long-run. Cheap office technology and equipment often needs to be replaced as the lower-quality materials wear out or the software is no longer supported by the manufacturer. This could turn your savings into higher costs in the long run, and it’s not environmentally friendly. Instead, consider investing in higher-quality pieces that will last longer and not end up in a recycling center or landfill within only a couple of years.

Turn off the lights.

It’s common for the first employee to enter an office in the morning to go around turning on all the lights, which then remain on for the rest of the working day — and sometimes even into the night. Instead, make it a priority to turn off the lights of any room not currently in use. Is there a meeting in the conference room at 9 AM? The lights won’t need to be turned on until the meeting is being set up, and can be turned off just afterward. It’s a small thing, but turning off lights in unused rooms can really help your energy bills over the course of a year.
These new habits seem small, but they’ll add up over time to help the environment and your office’s bottom line. Once you’ve implemented everything here, ask yourself — what are we doing with electronic waste?
If your old and outdated electronics are simply piling up in extra storage rooms or taking up space in desk drawers or closets, it’s time to find an ewaste recycling partner to help!

The South Carolina primary has come and gone, but the national election is still heating up! You may have seen campaign signs for various candidates popping up all over the place — on the side of the highway, in your neighbors’ front yards, outside of local businesses, or even in the median between two lanes of traffic.
Sooner or later, of course, the election’s going to end… and what will happen to all those campaign signs? Nearly all of them will find their way into landfills, adding more junk to the pile and more plastic that won’t biodegrade. Don’t throw your campaign signs out!
Instead, recycle them! Most campaign signs are made from corrugated plastic or a plastic film over cardboard, making them somewhat challenging to just toss in your home recycling bin. This doesn’t mean they can’t be recycled, however. They just need to be broken down (the metal “legs” that you stick into the ground need to be totally separated from the body of the sign) and then they can be dropped off at a local recycling center.
Most recycling centers will have a few different categories of plastic available, and campaign signs will either go into the paper products area if they are corrugated cardboard or into “hard plastic” if they are corrugated plastic or plastic film. The metal legs will go into a separate bin entirely.
Of course, we’re not telling you to take down your campaign signs right this second — the election really has only just begun, and we know that local homeowners and residents of Greenville want to keep up their visible support for their candidate right on through November. Just make sure you keep this advice in mind when the election’s over and it’s time to pull everything down.
One option to make things a bit easier is to get together with your neighbors and collect all the signs in your neighborhood at once. This way, only one person needs to make a single trip to a recycling dropoff point. Studies have shown that the easier recycling is, the more people will do it; so be the frontrunner inyour neighborhood for keeping things clean!
One final note: while the county and city of Greenville both have recycling programs for residents, they don’t always take everything. If your campaign sign is made of cardboard, you may be able to just toss it into your home recycling bin, but signs made of plastic film are not eligible. You’ll need to take those to a separate recycling center.
You can find a list of what types of items are recyclable by the county here on their website, and a list of recycling centers in and around Greenville county can be found by scrolling to the bottom of this page.
Also, don’t forget that there’s an upcoming free ewaste recycling event happening at the TD Convention Center in April (you can find more details here in our previous blog post)! When you’re looking for electronic waste recycling services for your business, or you’re having trouble finding someone to help you safely and legally recycle a large amount of electronics, give EARecycling a call! We can recycle just about any electronics you can think of. We also provide hard drive shredding services to residential and business customers! For as low as $7 per hard drive, you can gain total data security for less than it costs you to grab lunch.

While we’ve spoken before about how to recycle batteries, plastics, and household hazards safely, there are more than a few other items lurking around your house that it may be difficult to recycle. Often, these items end up thrown in the trash by families who just aren’t sure what else to do with them. We’d like to take a look at just a few of these items and give you tips on what you can do rather than send them off to the landfill.
Dealing with a pile of broken or worn-down crayons? Let’s face it — kids are hard on crayons. Either they snap in half and end up thrown to the side, or they get worn down to stubs. Don’t just throw them out!Rather than adding them to our rapidly overflowing landfills, send your old crayons off to the National Crayon Recycling Program! The NCRP takes old, broken, or worn-out crayons and helps melt the wax to create new ones. The NCRP has kept more than 62,000 pounds of crayons from ending up in landfills.
Have a string of old holiday lights that haven’t worked in years? Did you know Holiday LEDs accepts these old lights for recycling? Not only will they recycle these old lights for you, they’ll also send you a coupon to get a discount off brand new Holiday LEDs lights! It’s a situation where everyone wins.
How many plastic grocery bags do you have stuffed out of sight now? (Be honest.) Plastic grocery bags are one of the toughest items to recycle. Most municipal recycling programs won’t accept them, and once they find their way into landfills they’ve been known to injure or kill local wildlife. One way to deal with the plastic-bag buildup in your home is to check with local grocery stores to see if any of them offer plastic bag recycling programs. Wal-mart, for instance, often has an area in the front of the store where old plastic bags can be dropped off for reuse. Once you’ve gotten all those bags out of your home, it might be worth picking up reusable bags to ensure that you don’t get caught in the cycle again.
What about when your printer’s ink cartridge runs empty? Many people don’t give a second thought to tossing an old, empty ink cartridge in the trash. The truth is, ink cartridges contain toxic materials just like regular ewaste, and so many ink cartridges are thrown out every year that it is becoming a serious concern. Instead of throwing them out, recycle — it’s as easy as taking a step or two into your local office supply store! Staples, Office Max, Best Buy, and Walmart all participate in the HP Supplies Recycling Program. All you do is walk in and drop your old ink cartridges off to be recycled.
These are just a few of the household items finding their way into landfills when they could be recycled. While we at EARecycling have made safe and legal ewaste recycling our specialty, we believe in making a greener world one step at a time. Call on us when you’re looking to recycle old or outdated electronics (such as computers, video game consoles, televisions, and more), or even if you need assurance that your company or household information is totally secure — we also provide hard drive shredding services. You can find out more by contacting us online to request a pickup or giving us a call at (800) 746-1823 at any time.

We’re mostly known for recycling desktop and laptop computers, but that’s not all we work with here at Ever Green Environmental. We accept just about any form of electronics you can think of, including large electronics like TVs or fax machines! We’d like to answer a few of the most common questions we receive about the larger items we recycle.

What counts as ‘large electronics’?

Large electronics include CRT TVs, flat-screen televisions, large copiers or combination copier/fax machines, large-volume printers, and any other large office technology. Wondering what a CRT TV is? Think of the older, heavy televisions. These used to be TVs on the market until they were largely replaced by flat-screen options within the last fifteen years. CRTs (the letters stand for Cathode Ray Tube) are weighty and nearly all electronics manufacturers have discontinued production and service, leaving many CRTs taking up space in closets or storage rooms.

How can I prep my large electronics for recycling?

While nearly all electronics contain toxic materials involved in their construction, CRTs tend to have a greater amount; therefore, it’s very important to be careful while transporting them to a recycling facility. Make sure you don’t drop them, and if there is an incident where the televisions is dropped or cracked, handle with extreme care — wear gloves while sweeping up very small pieces. Drop your CRTs off at an ethical ewaste recycling facility where they can be processed responsibly.

What if my CRT, flat-screen TV, copier, or other piece of large electronics is still usable, but outdated?

At EARecycling, we are huge proponents of reusing if possible and giving back to the community. If your large electronics are still in good working order, contact local charities to see if they would be able to use them. Most CRTs will need to be disposed of regardless, but you may be able to find a new home for your old flat-screen televisions, copiers, fax machines, and other machinery.

Can I get money for my large electronics?

That depends. If your flat-screen TV is newer but you’ve decided to replace it, you may be able to get credit towards a new purchase at a local electronics store. In most cases, however, even at-home televisions will have depreciated in value enough that it will be costly for the recycling company to work with them.

Can you come and pick up my old TVs/copiers/fax machines/etc?

Yes — but you’ll need to pay for pickup. While EARecycling works with residential and commercial clients, when it comes to things like CRT and flat-screen televisions that are more likely to be in a residence than a business, it is usually cheaper for you to bring them to us. We charge for pickups in order to help recoup the costs of recycling. For commercial clients looking to recycle large amounts of a particular type of technology (such as 100 CRTs or fifty flat-screen TVs, for instance), it will be far easier on your business (and your employees) for us to come to you. Schedule hard drive shredding services at the same time and we’ll shred your hard drives on site during your pickup!

Can’t I just toss my TVs out with the trash?

The short answer is no. Televisions fall under recently passed legislation in South Carolina that bans the disposal of televisions and other electronic waste in landfills, due to the long-term damage to soil and groundwater that is likely when the toxic materials inside break down. If you are unable to donate your televisions to a nonprofit agency, it is incredibly important to recycle it safely and responsibly by working with an ewaste recycling company. Business could face fines of thousands of dollars per day if caught illegally throwing out electronics — including TVs.

I need to recycle my TV. Where can I drop it off?

Here, of course! At Electronic Asset Recycling, we work hard to provide total ewaste recycling servicesthat cover more than just a laptop or a cell phone. You can bring in just about any kind of electronics you use for safe recycling. Interested in scheduling a pickup or asking about drop offs? We’d love to hear from you! Just give us a call at (800) 746-1823 or contact us online at any time. While we cannot accept drop offs outside of out Greenville, South Carolina location, we are able to schedule pickups in locations like Asheville, Charlotte, and Charleston. Just contact us and we’ll tell you what your options are throughout WNC and South Carolina.

We here at Electronic Asset Recycling can keep data safe once you get rid of electronics, we aren’t much help when it comes to securing the data on the devices you currently use. To learn how to keep both your data and your client’s data safe and secure, enjoy this guest article from Gregory Wolf at Wolf Technology Group in Greenville, South Carolina.
The main goals of most small businesses are to get more clients and expand on existing revenues. How can you do that if your organization is at risk from a cyber security perspective? In order to safely grow your business, you must enact a list of best practices that will help your organization thrive as your business begins to attract more end users into the environment. Here are 4 tips that can help ensure the safety of your small business.

#1.) Enact Strict Password Policies

The best defense against a brute force password crack is enforce password measures that require your users to update their passwords frequently. You should also mandate a standard complexity scheme in your passwords, requiring them to be lengthy and contain special characters. The first defense against hackers is to create passwords that aren’t easily guessed. Always prohibit the sharing of passwords and monitor service accounts for unauthorized use.

#2.) Setup Two Factor Authentication for Remote Access

When your users connect to your network remotely, they should do so using a two factor authentication methods. These methods are becoming popular because services such as Office 365 have introduced this as a way to further authenticate users when they login to certain portals.
Two factor authentication can be setup to require an RSA token. Other services will send authentication codes directly to the end user’s smartphone via text message or phone call. If a user gets a phone call or a text when they didn’t login to the portal, they’ll know that someone is trying to illegitimately access their account.

#3.) Force Overnight Updating and Virus Scanning of Your Desktop PCs

When you provide desktop PCs or laptops to your end users, you are giving them the ability to introducemalicious code into your environment. Without proper safeguards such as antimalware and antivirus software, your network could be at risk. When you deploy a new workstation to a user, ensure that they have an antivirus client that is able to be remotely updated and that the device is setup scan late at night, when the user is likely away from the machine. Daily virus scanning helps you keep your network operating at optimal levels.

#4.) Software and Hardware Firewalls

Firewalls are a staple of network security. When you configure the software firewalls found on your desktop computers, you can block unwanted traffic from within and outside the network.
In order to block traffic from the internet from penetrating your network, a hardware firewall is setup between your internet connection and the switches that provide network connectivity to your end users.
Always keep the firmware updated and subscribe to any content filter subscription services that may be available to you (if your firewall can support it). Having a firewall between your organization and the outside world is imperative to building a secure network that securely transmits information both internally and externally.

Putting It All Together

When you implement these basic security measures, you can be certain that your organization will have covered the top security threats impacting small businesses today. While each network has its own set of nuances, businesses that have firewalls, proper authentication techniques, and up-to-date antispyware, antimalware, and antivirus programs are several steps ahead of other businesses who may not have implemented these same security measures.
If you know your business isn’t as secure as it should be and need help implementing all of these cyber security measures, give us a call at (864) 248-6316 or contact us online today! We’d love to help you keep both your information AND your client’s personal information safe and secure.

Recently, residents living in Greater Greenville (the area of Greenville county outside of the city limits) received an envelope in the mail (click here to see the brochure that was included inside). In the letter and brochure, residents were informed about changes Greater Greenville Sanitation is planning to make to their municipal recycling program,effective July 1, 2016.
The most basic change is simply a switch from the current small blue recycling bins to much larger 96-gallon wheeled recycling bins, which will look almost identical to current municipal trash cans. Residents are asked to pay a one-time fee of $25 to cover registration for the new recycling program and the cost of the new bins. Greater Greenville residents who wish to enroll in recycling will need to fill out the included form and return it to Greater Greenville Sanitation byFebruary 29th, 2016.
That isn’t the only change Greater Greenville Sanitation is making, however, and it’s the other change that has had people asking a few questions within the community. Effective July 1st, GGS will no longer be accepting glass for recycling.
Why would they stop accepting glass? To find the answer, it’s worth taking a look at changes within the recycling industry over the past two to three years. Fortune magazine’s article takes a pretty good look at how technological innovations and changing consumer behavior has led to a freefall when it comes to the recycling industry’s ability to make a profit. Many items, glass (and ewaste) included, have become so expensive to recycle that it’s difficult to just break even, let alone make any profit. The recycling companies working with municipal departments have begun to charge for the privilege, where previously rebates allowed municipalities to make back some of the cost of recycling.
This doesn’t mean that recycling isn’t valuable — a global commitment to recycling becomes more important every day. The changes in the industry do mean that much of the recycling industry (especially when it comes to ewaste) will need to start focusing more on finding ways to recoup their costs ethically and responsibly.
EARecycling encourages all of our Greenville-area readers to register right away and continue investing in our environment and our future by recycling household plastics, paper products, batteries, and even old medicines or household chemicals. When you’re looking to recycle old computers, video game consoles, televisions, and other ewaste — look to Electronic Asset Recycling. We provide safe, legal ewaste recycling and hard drive shredding services throughout South Carolina and parts of North Carolina, for both residential and commercial clients. Interested in learning more? We’d love to hear from you! Give us a call at (800) 746-1823 or contact us online to request a pickup today!

While we’ve spoken previously about recycling hazardous household chemicals and batteries, there’s another part of the average American household building up in landfills: plastics. Plastic seems to be in just about everything these days — the storage containers that keep our leftovers safe in the fridge, the bags we bring groceries home in, even the casing around our televisions or laptops. While many plastics can be recycled, that’s not true of all of them.
How can you tell if plastic in your home can be recycled?
Check the little number inside the “recycle” symbol on the object. If you’re wondering what those numbers actually mean, we have a quick and handy guide:

  • Number 1 is polyethylene terephthalate, known at PETE or PET. PET plastic is used for things like soda bottles, or peanut butter jars. It’s recycled easily, so local recycling programs almost always accept it.
  • Number 2 is high-density polyethylene plastics, or HDPE. Milk jugs, laundry detergent containers, shampoo or soap bottles, and bleach containers are all made with HDPE. HDPE is considered very safe and is easily recycled.
  • Number 3 is polyvinyl chloride, or PVC. While PVC can be recycled, it’s not as common as the first two types of plastic. It can be harmful if even small amounts are ingested, so be careful.
  • Number 4 is low-density polyethylene, or LDPE. When you get your groceries bagged in plastic, it’s LDPE bags that you carry your food home in. LDPE is often not accepted by local municipal recycling programs, but stores sometimes have “plastic bag recycling areas” in the entryway, so you can drop off your excess plastic bags quickly and easily.
  • Number 5 refers to polypropylene, or PP. PP is used to make stronger plastic that can withstand higher temperatures, like Tupperware or stadium cups. PP is not often accepted by local recycling programs.
  • Number 6 is polystyrene — most commonly known as PS or Styrofoam. While recycling PS is possible, it’s not very efficient and is therefore not yet common. Styrofoam is often found in packing peanuts, disposable drink cups, or plastic cutlery.
  • Number 7 covers basically everything else. Polycarbonate and polylactide are examples of Plastic Number 7. Plastics in this category (things like baby bottles, CDs, or medical storage containers) are very difficult to recycle, so it is rare for them to be accepted anywhere at all. Try to limit your purchase of Type 7 items to only those that are absolutely necessary.

We here at Electronic Asset Recycling do everything we can to reuse, reduce, and recycle the plastic casings of the computers, game consoles, and other electronics we come into contact with on a daily basis. If you’re looking to recycling old or outdated electronics and need to know that they’ll be taken care of legally and safely, give us a call! You can reach us by phone at (800) 746-1823 or contact us online today!

One of the biggest traditions of the holiday season is giving gifts. While the electronic waste created by all those brand-new cell phones, game consoles, televisions, or other replaced electronics is bad enough, that’s only a drop in the holiday trash bucket. The piles of plastic zip-ties and twist-ties, packages of batteries needed for new electronic kids’ toys, and wrapping paper add up to a serious amount of trash. That’s why we suggest shopping locally for handmade holiday gifts. When you keep your gift-buying local, you cut down on all that plastic and trash while supporting the livelihoods of the great creative folk here in Greenville and in the surrounding areas of the Upstate. We have a few ideas for where to shop that will help you keep those holiday dollars in Greenville — and keep that holiday trash pile to a minimum.

  • A one-stop shop for handmade holiday gifts: Visit the Indie Craft Parade Holiday Fair on December 5th! Held at the Kroc Center, the Indie Craft Holiday Fair brings together all kinds of local artisans and craftspeople, providing one great location to shop for all kinds of gifts. Home decor, clothing, accessories, jewelry — if you can think of it, odds are you can find it at the Holiday Fair. Admission is $1.
  • When you just can’t resist the Christmas spirit: Go all out at the 45th Annual TD Center Holiday Fair — the region’s largest holiday crafts, decor, and gifts show. Here you’ll definitely find something for everyone; commercial and local craft vendors will be on hand with gift ideas from food, to home goods, to wearables, and more! The Holiday Fair will run December 3rd through December 5th and tickets to enter are $6 for adults, $5 for senior citizens, and FREE for those under 12!
  • When you want those holiday dollars to go to a good cause: Christ Church Episcopal is hosting their All Saints Bazaar on November 14th. You won’t just be finding the perfect presents at this event, you’ll also be shopping for a good cause! All proceeds from sales will go to benefit the following local nonprofits:
    • A Child’s Haven
    • YouthBase
    • The Greenville Interfaith Hospitality Network
    • The Family Effect/Serenity Place.
  • Not wanting to fight Greenville’s famous holiday shopping crowds? Head just a little bit north and visit The Very Merry Local Christmas Market in Travelers Rest on December 12th! Held in the brand new Trailblazer Park located just off the Swamp Rabbit Trail, the Very Merry Local Christmas Market will be a great chance to grab gifts made by local Upstate artists, artisans, and craftspeople! You’ll be out in the fresh air while you shop, and you’re sure to make new friends (or run into old ones) while you’re there.

Rather than ending up with a pile of ewaste, plastic, and paper cluttering up your living space, take time to shop locally! Help our local Greenville artists and craftspeople have a happy holiday season — and help yourself with having to worry less about that trash pile on Christmas morning.We here at Electronic Asset Recycling are proud and happy members of the festive, close-knit community of Greenville and Upstate South Carolina, and we’re always thrilled to help support local businesses.
When you’re looking for something to do with all the old and outdated electronics in your home after the holidays (or all year round), give us a call! We safely and legally recycle your ewaste, both residential and commercial, taking all that clutter off your hands. You can reach us by phone at (800) 746-1823 or contact us online today!
