Committed to Environmentally Responsible Electronic Recycling
E-Scrap, E-Waste, the Electronic equipment that your company has decommissioned and sits unused in the storage room or closet, also known as de-manufactured electronic materials, is classified by government regulations as “Universal Waste” and must be treated differently from common household waste and other waste.
This creates a special need for companies when upgrading medical, telecommunication, computer, peripheral, and other electronic devices to perform their due diligence in selecting a qualified service provider to help advise and assist them in proper disposal and recycling of their retired electronics.
RAE de-manufactures and recycles a wide variety of electronic assets in compliance with all government regulations and environmental directives. All of this is accomplished with no product being exported to any Third World or underdeveloped countries at any time for processing. RAE reclaims natural resources for reuse and does not landfill products, components, or composite materials used in the manufacture of electronics products.
Recycling Done Safely, Securely and Responsibly
There are many risks associated with the improper recycling and disposal of obsolete and retired electronics, not only to human health and the environment due to the hazardous materials that electronics contain such as mercury, chromium and lead, but also to the health of your company. There is the more well-known liability associated with data security and there is also an environmental liability. To effectively eliminate these liabilities, it is vital to select a qualified service provider to help manage your electronics recycling needs. As a full service electronics recycling company, we challenge ourselves to deliver more than what’s expected in ways that will continue to benefit our customers while reducing the global environmental impact.
