Electronic Recyling

 

WHY RECYCLE?

Electronic equipment contains materials that can damage the environment and prove hazardous for human life in the future. U.S. landfills are filling rapidly with electronic scrap that could have been diverted. Recycled materials are useful to a wide variety of industries to produce new products, creates various jobs, stimulate greener technology development and conserve energy.

UNSAFE FOR LANDFILLS.

When some components are disposed of at a landfill, hazardous material is released into the environment.  This poses a danger to current and future generations. Electronic scrap contains hazardous and non-biodegradable material such as: lead, lead solder, plastic, copper, chromium, beryllium, cadmium, barium, nickel, zinc and older models may contain mercury.

Dublin e-waste provides convenient and safe Commercial and Residential recycling services according to the guidelines set by the EPA. Learn more about the items we recycle or contact Dublin e-waste for additional information about our electronic recycling services.

Data Destruction

 Moving data and files to the trash does not securely delete your private or personal information. At Dublin e-waste, protection of your electronic data is our top priority. We make sure that when we recycle your decommissioned assets such as laptops, computers, printers, scanners, servers, phone systems, or handheld devices–we remove your data.

WHY SHOULD YOU CARE?
Compromised data can damage your company’s reputation and cost millions of dollars as well as violate compliance regulations on the federal & state level.

• HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability & Accountability Act)
• GLBA (Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act)
• FISMA (Federal Information Security Management Act)
• FACTA (Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act)

Dublin e-waste provides various levels of data destruction, ranging from hard drive overwriting (Department of Defense compliant) in Dublin e-waste’s secure Data Destruction Laboratory to physical destruction of the storage medium either on or offsite. Your company will receive an Dublin e-waste Certificate of Data Destruction shielding your company from the risks associated with end-of-life electronic data.

YOU DON’T HAVE TO LEAVE YOUR DATA BEHIND
DATA TERMINATION:
Ensuring your data doesn’t outlive your electronic devices is critical to eliminating company liability on personal information when you decommission outdated electronic equipment.

Recycling

Being a responsible recycler fully dedicated to a healthy environment for all of us, we work closely with regulatory agencies and authorities in meeting and exceeding the various regulatory standards currently in force around the globe.

Recycling can realistically reduce the amount of municipal solid waste by approximately 25 percent. Recycling also conserves natural resources and energy. Your company can recycle in other ways, too.

Let us do the legwork and turn your unwanted, old and excess equipment into a tax-deductible write-off by providing schools and other charitable institutions with refurbished equipment. We will inventory your equipment, provide you with a complete accounting and donate your goods to charity.

When we say full-service, we mean full service.Blue Star Electronics, LLC has a high-security facility to store your electronic scrap or unwanted equipment. Whether your goal is recycling or remarketing, we can handle your storage needs.

COMPLIANCE BENEFIT

Recycling can reduce waste by removing and recovering regulated materials from the printed circuit boards. The reduction of hazardous waste helps facilities to meet the requirements of waste reduction under RCRA, 40 CFR 262 and Executive Order (EO) 13148, Greening the Government Through Leadership in Environmental Management. The recycling of printed circuit boards will also help facilities comply with EO 13101, Greening the Government Through Waste Prevention, Recycling, and Federal Acquisition. In addition, recycling can reduce potential generator liability issues associated with improper waste handling and/or disposal procedures. Recycling printed circuit boards, rather than disposing of them, also helps facilities to meet the goals of the Pollution Prevention Act (42 USC 13101-13109) that states that recycling of spent materials is preferable to treatment or disposal.

The compliance benefits listed here are only meant to be used as general guidelines and are not meant to be strictly interpreted. Actual compliance benefits will vary depending on the factors involved, e.g., the amount of workload involved.

MATERIALS COMPATIBILITY

Materials compatibility should generally not be a consideration since virtually all of the components of printed circuit boards are stable, solid materials when handled under normal circumstances. Some concern may be associated with printed circuit boards that contain unstable and/or toxic components such as mercury, certain forms of lead, and some electronic components that are attached to the boards. The waste recycling vendor should be contacted if any potential concerns exists regarding material compatibility that may be encountered during shipment or processing of the circuit boards.

SAFETY AND HEALTH

Minimal safety and health concerns apply to circuit board recycling.

Consult your local industrial health specialist, your local health and safety personnel, and the appropriate MSDS prior to implementing this technology.

BENEFITS

* Recovered value of raw materials, particularly precious metals,reclaimed from processing the circuit boards.
* Savings resulting from the elimination of a potential hazardous waste for "special" waste stream.
* Reduction of potential generator liability associated with improper waste handling and/or disposal procedures.
* Generators can increase public awareness by publicizing efforts made to bolster recycling initiatives at their facilities.

DISADVANTAGES

* Market value of the reclaimed metals can fluctuate abruptly.
* Boards containing inherently toxic or hazardous materials such as mercury may have little or no recyclable value.

ECONOMIC ANALYSIS

The economics of printed circuit board recycling will be determined by many factors, including the characteristics of the boards to be recycled, market value of the reclaimed components/raw materials, volume of boards being recycled, and conditions of the hazardous waste/solid waste market. Boards containing valuable metals, such as gold or silver, that can be readily reclaimed will be the easiest and most economically beneficial to recycle. Boards containing inherently toxic or hazardous materials (e.g., mercury) may have little or no recyclable value and be precluded from consideration in a recycling program.
NSN/MSDS:
None identified.

APPROVING AUTHORITY

Appropriate authority for making process changes should always be sought and obtained prior to procuring or implementing any of the technology identified herein.

We understand the need of some customers to have proprietary equipment and data destroyed. As an example of our total commitment to these customers we have offices available onsite for customers to witness the destruction of their product.
