Computer Equipment Removal for Office Closures
When office closures happen, many companies are left with unwanted computer equipment. Whether you have stacks of laptops and hard drives, or piles of printers, cables, and phone systems, Back Thru The Future can securely remove your electronics, shred the hard drives onsite or offsite, and remove your equipment for transportation back to our secure processing facility.
How to dispose of equipment from office closures:
- Call us for a quote
- Back Thru The Future will determine what you need based on your inventory list or inventory type, quantity or approximate weight, and pickup requirements.
- We will schedule a pick up of your equipment
- You will get a reconciliation, destruction certificate, and certificate of recycling
What if you don’t know what you have?
As more and more companies are shifting to a remote workforce, we know that the task of getting rid of unwanted office equipment is sometimes left to someone who can’t identify the items.
That’s OK. We can work with photos and estimates.
When we arrive to pick up your equipment, we’ll reconcile the difference and schedule additional pick up times if necessary.
We know the challenges of destroying devices containing electronic circuitry
Electronic circuitry are the brains of your computer equipment. There is information stored in computers, tablets, copiers, scanners, printers, fax machines, and phones. This data is contained on incredibly small electronic chips embedded on the circuit boards. From a reverse engineering standpoint recovering your unique programming from a chip is a relatively simple task. Therefore, it is imperative that the chips themselves must be destroyed.
When you call Back Thru The Future for your electronic equipment and computer disposal, we will accomplish three important objectives:
1. The circuit boards will be removed for specialized handling, shredding and recycling.
2. Batteries will be removed for separate environmentally required recycling.
3. Other materials such as plastics and metals are separated for further specialized recycling.
Destroying obsolete and defective devices protects you and your company from data security breaches and environmental concerns.
Shredding and recycling your devices electronic circuitry
Shredding the circuit boards assures that all solid state data storage imbedded within a circuit board is destroyed. This is becoming an increasingly important security step as more information is being stored on circuit boards as opposed to removable hard drives. The shredding is performed in a highly secure environment. The shredded particles are then sent to precious metal refining facilities where the shredded material is melted and the valuable metals recovered. This recycling process assures you that all sensitive information is completely destroyed.
Environmental regulatory compliance
25 States require that all devices with electronic circuitry embedded be recycled by qualified electronic recyclers and not land-filled. Back Thru The Future is one of only a very limited number of electronic recyclers in the US that is authorized as a US EPA “Universal Waste Destination facility for Electronics”. We have the US EPA authority to provide a legally valid environmental compliance document for the proper recycling of electronic waste. (Read More)
We are both a Federal EPA registered and NJ State licensed electronic recycling facility as well as being one of a very few electronics recyclers that is both NAID AAA and PCI DSS certified secure. We maintain the electronic recycling industry’s highest certifications.
We can provide for witnessed destruction both in person or streamed directly. We can provide video recorded destruction on any media you choose. Our entire destruction process includes documented handling points within the destruction process that constitute auditable “chain of possession”. This is of particular importance for medical device manufactures that are required by the FDA to track individual devices utilizing UDI labels.
We operate a fully integrated electronics recycling operation from the shredding of the electronic components to the highly specialized ability to sort the shredded components into pure recyclable materials.
