A Rotting Toxic Pile
For the average consumer, you may not think twice about where those batteries go that you tossed into the trash. You know it will end up in the landfill, but you may not realize that those batteries will be sitting there for years leaking battery acid into the environment. The same can be said for any other form of electronic that is just tossed into the standard garbage pile. There is a considerable lack of education about what to do with electronics once they are no longer being used. This e-waste is building and can be just as, if not more dangerous, than the other pollutants currently clogging up the atmosphere.
A Secure Solution
For others, the issue of recycling their technology may have to do with security concerns. As such, you may be wondering, “how can I recycle my electronics Toronto without risking my security?” After all, the idea of a whole database out there filled with private information and passwords could be enough to make anyone stay awake at night. Hackers can easily find those old computers and find a way to access the information.
Luckily, there’s a resource ready to help. Greentec is devoted to securing unwanted electronics and recycling them in a safe and secure manner. If the electronics can be reused, then Greentec will make sure that the computer or whatever piece of technology is wiped entirely, so no sensitive information remains on it. They’ll do the same if the piece of technology is going to be destroyed and have pieces of it recovered like copper, aluminum, and other desired components.
They utilize a thorough chain-of-custody protocol to ensure that any electronic containing sensitive information is properly held and destroyed. Depending on the piece of electronic, they can either destroy it there or back at their facility. Regardless, if you have sensitive information on equipment that you’re intending to toss out, call Greentec to make sure it’s handled professionally.
