Ewaste is a big problem, both nationally and here in the state of South Carolina. While dumping electronic waste is illegal, it hasn’t stopped people from throwing their old cell phones, game consoles, televisions, and more out on the curb, hoping they won’t get caught. Even some large corporations have been discovered dumping on the sly. Rather than take the risk of fines or even jail time, partner with Electronic Asset Recycling! We take in commercial or residential electronic waste. Wondering what the difference is between the two, from our point of view? We find it hinges on two key points.
Volume. While we may take a couple of old laptops, a few cell phones, and that Playstation that has been gathering dust for four years out of a single household, a corporation may call for a pickup of three hundred individual PC’s that are no longer in use. It can be a huge difference in volume; where residential ewaste can be measured in individual items, commercial pickups or dropoffs are more often measured by the pallet.
Data security concerns. For the most part, residential customers are more interested in making sure they’re just not breaking the law. Their old electronics usually aren’t recycled until they’re no longer in use, or have broken down and stopped working entirely., Corporations, on the other hand, are often off-loading things like fax machines, computers, and copiers that work perfectly fine; they’re just being replaced by newer and more efficient technology. We work hard on secure data destruction for both residential and corporate customers and are able to guarantee total destruction according to Department of Defense Standards, and no job is too big or too small for us to give our full attention to keeping your data safe.
Residential and commercial ewaste recycling clients differ in two big ways – in the volume of what they bring to us (or we pick up from them) and in their concern over data security. Whether you’re an individual household looking to legally and safely dispose of old electronics, or you’re a large business looking for a long-term partnership with an ewaste recycling company, we’re here to help! Electronic Asset Recycling is based out of Greenville, South Carolina and we work with many companies here in the Upstate, as well as other areas in the Carolinas through our remote office locations. If you’re a business interested in partnering with us, contact us for more information at (800) 746-1823 or request a pickup online today!
