“Nothing.” was the answer. “That’s why that office is piled up. Why do you think we put you in that office. You can’t just throw electronics away. All data has to be destroyed. Just remember, policy says everything needs to be recycled. There is no budget for I.T. waste. Good luck!” He grinned and walked away.
The event will also feature secure on-site document shredding for a discounted rate of .59/lb, a .20/lb savings over the regular rate.
Local ordinances require that electronics be disposed of in a proper manner and not placed with normal household or office trash. Over 85 percent of all electronic waste (E-waste) goes un-recycled, with millions of tons entering the waste stream every year. The average American household has at least 24 electronic items. E-waste can contain more than 1,000 components, many of which are toxic.
