Every year a surprising amount of PC’s, laptops, servers, battery backups, monitors, and network equipment end up in landfills. One of the biggest pitfalls of electronics is that their components are toxic to the environment, and to us, if they're just thrown away and left to seep into the earth.
If you throw away your PCs without destroying the hard drives or your backup tapes/drives without destroying the media, it is possible for thieves to steal your sensitive information.
The ideal situation would be that all of us use, repair and re-purpose our electronics until we no longer can and then at that point, we recycle them responsibly. Unfortunately, the statistics show that we don't come close to that.
This is why Windstar Technologies, Inc. has partnered with Potomac eCycle in Manassas, Va to recycle your end of life technology.
Potomac eCycle is R2:RIOS certified company that specializes in environmentally safe electronics recycling and secure data destruction.
Windstar Technologies will carry off your end of life technology, at no charge to our clients.*
*Potomac eCycle charges a fee for accepting some electronics that have toxic materials, that charge we pass along to our clients. Excludes data destruction additional charges apply.
