Currently, there are no federal guidelines for data destruction or for recycling. Some states have imposed their own regulations as far as recycling, but still there is no standard for data security. Here at Globix, we want you to know we take these things very seriously. We dispose of electronic waste responsibly. We pride ourselves on wiping all data per DoD specs to make sure your data is secure and safe from fraud and other identity leaks. If we cannot wipe it, we have a hard drive shredder to destroy them. Our shredder is also mobile, so if you are local to Norcross, GA we can come out to you to make sure you never lose sight of your data. We also provide documentation for all our processes so you can be sure that we not only destroyed your data, but we did not use a landfill, and all your equipment has been handled at the highest level of security and scrutiny.

R2 Responsible Recycling

r2recycling-icon

The Responsible Recycling Practices Standard (R2:2013) certification is a voluntary practice that complies with EPA guidelines for responsible recycling of electronics. It says Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle. The basic idea is to keep electronics from abandonment or winding up in landfills, where the heavy metals and other toxins may wind up in drinking water or damaging the environment. We adhere by refurbishing and reselling, and if that’s not possible, safely disposing and scrapping of materials. R2 is an agreement with the EPA to strive to act responsibly towards the environment as a computer recycler.
