Providing regulatory compliant computer recycling and secure data destruction services for over 30 years.

There are over 500 federal and state regulations governing electronics disposal. Back Thru The Future understands these risks and has the proven tools and experience to guide our clients through this complicated regulatory landscape



Vendor Due Diligence is a Requirement

Regulatory compliance requires that you have documentation supporting that your IT asset disposal vendor has the necessary qualifications and experience to perform the tasks contracted for. You should not rely solely on your experience with the third party as a proxy for an objective, in-depth assessment of the third party’s ability.  Computer recycling and the associated secure destruction of obsolete data assets is a regulatory complex activity. Choosing the right IT asset disposal vendor requires understanding the challenges and confirming that the vendor has all the necessary qualifications and is someone you can trust.

Regulatory Environmental Compliance

Did you know that environmental computer disposal regulations are almost exclusively individual State regulations?

Interstate commerce waste disposal regulations specify that the regulations of the state where the waste is disposed of must be followed, not the regulations of the state where it came from. Once your disposed of computer equipment leaves your facility, how do you know where it will wind up and what state regulations you need to be in compliance with?

Back Thru The Future’s unique environmental regulatory status allows us to provide a valid environmental compliance certificate for all 50 states.


Regulatory Data Privacy Compliance

Surveys have found that the #1 concern of CIOs when disposing of IT assets is ‘Data Security’ by a factor of 2 to 1.

But it’s not only about Data Security, it’s also the risk of regulatory Data Privacy non-compliance. Different Industries and different States require differing data destruction standards. There are also legal records destruction requirements . You are required to maintain auditable records of all your data destruction activities in order to prove compliance.

Patrick and his team were Great! They were efficient, neat, organized, and very personable. I enjoyed my interaction with all of them as I was working beside them doing other tasks. We had A LOT of stuff and they pushed through like champs. I really enjoy working with people who make my day go by quickly while getting a ton done. I look forward to working with them again.
The technicians we had on site were great. Their system and work flow was fast and effective.
Patrick is an excellent “face of the company” and very knowledgeable. [He] addressed all of the questions posed regarding what services you provide and how this pickup will be processed.
I would again to give kudos to both Joe and Ty for the collection of items on 2/12/16. Their professionalism and dedication gives us great comfort in using BTTF for asset disposal and destruction. I would like to use your services for our 5 West Coast Offices.

I just want to say that the gentlemen that were here this past week did a great job. Especially Joe, who went above and beyond great customer service and work ethic to complete the job within our time constraints.
I just wanted to reach out and say how happy I was with the service we had yesterday. The two gentlemen who showed up were friendly and professional and it made the whole thing just a joy to be a part of. Both of them deserve raises.
