Responsible e-waste recycling serves the greater good and improves ROI
It’s possible to incur $10,000 a day in fines for improper landfill disposal. In addition to avoiding fines; it’s a matter of social responsibility. Unlawfully or carelessly disposed electronics create grave hazards to the environment and our health. Now, more than ever, having a partnership with Synetic, an audited and certified e-waste recycling firm that understands EPA recycling, gives your company the peace of mind associated with practicing safe environmental policies and that you are protected from liability.
Responsible IT asset disposal isn’t only the right thing to do, but it’s also a commitment to good environmental stewardship, which is expected by some consumers or vendors and demanded by others.
It’s imperative that your company gets in front of environmental matters since unfamiliarity is not an excuse. EPA guidelines and laws are constantly evolving and the consequences for disregarding them are steep. And through the media and environmental policy, companies face increased visibility and regulation that can play out negatively on a public platform.
According to EPA statistics, less than a quarter of the over 3.4 million tons of e-waste (containing cadmium, lead, mercury and other hazardous materials) generated in 2011 was recycled. The remaining 75%+ was sent to landfills or incinerators.
Our zero tolerance policy on contributing to landfills
Synetic Technologies adheres to a strict zero-landfill policy, focused on recycling 100 percent of end-of-life electronics. Our mantra is reuse, remarket, recycle.
- Reusable equipment is reintroduced to the market or adapted to new applications to extend IT assets’ lifespan, thus minimizing environmental impact.
- Raw materials from de-manufactured equipment are given a new life in new products.
- Our online reporting system tracks your assets through every step of the recycling process.
- You’re given a detailed audit of your recycled and remarketed assets, which doesn’t end in a landfill.
- As part of our full lifecycle services, Synetic recovers and recycles all types of IT-related batteries.
When it’s all said and done, you have no doubt that your IT assets were recycled through EPA-regulated, certified and audited channels to reduce environmental waste and conserve energy and valuable raw materials.
Batteries contain mercury, lead, cadmium and nickel, which can contaminate the environment when improperly disposed. Hazardous metals might be released into the air or can concentrate in the ash produced by incinerating.
