Fully Licensed & Secure Computer Recycling NJ
There are over 500 Federal and State regulations governing IT asset disposal
Back Thru The Future understands these risks and has the proven tools and the experience to guide our clients through this complicated regulatory landscape
NJ DEP Compliant Computer Recycling
New Jersey has one of the most restrictive computer recycling regulations in the US. The NJ DEP along with 7 other State environmental regulatory agencies has classified to be disposed of computer equipment as a “Universal Waste” . Universal Waste is a Federal EPA managed and regulated set of waste disposal handling requirements. Under these handling guidelines only properly registered “Universal Waste Destination Facilities” are permitted to process (recycle) a universal waste. The NJ DEP identifies NJ based computer recycling destination facilities as Class D Universal Waste Consumer Electronics permitted facilities. Class D facilities are authorized to recycle computers as required under the 2011 enacted NJ E-waste law. We are one of only 12 Class D licensed facilities in the State of NJ. Only a NJ Class D licensed facility can issue a regulatory valid computer recycling environmental compliance certificate.
Back Thru The Future® is a Federal and State registered “Universal Waste Consumer Electronics Destination Facility” (Permit No. CDG120002, EPA ID No. 000075416).
Don’t be confused by businesses identifing themselves as NJ DEP registered computer recyclers. Universal waste regulations require anyone handling or storing more than 11000 pounds of universal waste must register with both the Federal EPA and NJ DEP as a “Large Quantity Universal Waste Handler” Handlers are specifically prohibited from processing (recycling) the stored material. These businesses are used computer resellers and can not issue a regulatory valid computer recycling certificate as required under the NJ e-waste law.
Our EPA audit report provides the details required to pass an EPA audit
We document each project with a report listing the manufacturer, model, type of equipment, weight and serial number of every item of equipment recycled. This EPA audit report provides a record supporting your compliance to the recycling regulations for every item of equipment disposed of. Keep in mind that without a detailed legally valid environmental compliance certificate and audit report you could be held financially responsible for any environmental clean up costs if a one of your disposed of computers is found in an illegal dump. This is a pretty remote risk but it has happened.
Hard Drive Destruction Under NJ DEP Regulations
Surveys have shown that the single largest concern by a factor of 2 to 1 by CIOs when recycling computer equipment is data security. The shredding of hard drives is by far the most effective technique for the destruction of recorded data. NJ DEP regulations specifically state:
To “Crush, shred and puncture hard drives and electronic data storage media generated from the disassembly of used electronics” you must be a permitted “universal waste destination facility” as identified under 40 CRF 260 of the Federal EPA universal waste handling code.
Back Thru The Future®, as a licensed universal waste destination facility, provides both onsite and plant-based regulatory compliant hard drive shredding.
