New York Environmentally Compliant Computer Recycling

Just across the beautiful Tapanzee Bridge, located in Northern NJ, is one of the most experienced and qualified IT asset disposal companies in the US.  

Back Thru The Future Computer Recycling has been providing regulatory compliant computer recycling services for over 30 years. We support over 1000 clients located throughout the New York metropolitan area, with a large number of clients within Westchester County.

Back Thru The Future specializes in the recycling of all computer equipment and medical devices. We destroy all devices that house data by shredding.  Back The The Future does not refurbish and sell devices.

With solid state storage components, the disposal of electronic equipment now represents an environmental liability as well as a data security risk.  

It is our business to protect you from these risks.

Back Thru The Future employs 4 mobile hard drive shredding vehicles and both a high capacity plant based shredder and disintegrator.  Our shredders are capable of 3/8 of an inch shredding size required for NIST compliant SSD destruction and several are rated at over 2000 hard drives shred per hour.  We have the capability to address any type and size shredding project.



Onsite shredding is the most effective method for sanitizing SSD and solid state cards. Because of the very small size of solid state circuitry, NIST destruction guidelines require a maximum shred size of 1/2 inches. Back Thru The Future is one of only a very limited number of onsite hard drive shredding services that can meet this shred size standard. Today, most mobile computing devices utilize solid state storage. Server hard drives are rapidly incorporating solid state data storage components. The sanitization of solid state storage devices is becoming a significant data security challenge. Adopting onsite SSD shredding as your universal data destruction process eliminates the technical challenges of sanitizing solid state media and provides a one-stop solution to all of your data destruction needs.
