Disposal of E-Waste

For Equitable, Environmentally Friendly Organizations

E-waste recycling certification ensures that when your company says it is sustainable, the word actually means something.

Compliance and information technology (IT) decision makers are constantly looking to minimize security risks, achieve business goals, maintain systems reliability, and increase user satisfaction. One key way to achieve all these aims is the implementation of company sustainability practices. From the C-Suite down, sustainability sounds great — great for marketing, great for the environment, great for the company. Yet, the goal of sustainability is, by itself, quite abstract. While the goal of sustainable business practices sounds excellent, it comes down to people such as IT Directors and Operators to actually implement those goals at a concrete level. When doing so, following the “SMART goal framework” is key, making sure company standards and processes are:

  • Specific
  • Measurable
  • Achievable
  • Relevant
  • Time-Bound

One challenge that many IT professionals fail to address in a SMART way is how to deal with e-waste — a key aspect of sustainable business practices. Even more, how you handle e-waste speaks volumes about the values and goals of your company.

When it comes time to replace old PCs, mobile phones, hard drives, and other electronics, you have a few options to consider:

  1. Make repairs
  2. Donate older products
  3. Hire an electronics recycling company

According to the EPA, nearly 60% of electronic devices end up in landfills. While many states in the union are passing e-waste regulations, others remain far more lenient. At the end of the day, it is up to you and your company to determine your sustainable electronic waste management plan in general, and what specifically you will do with your used, no-longer-need electronics.

Mercury, lead, freon, and other elements in computers and other types of electronics break down and leach into soil and groundwater when thrown away.

Environmentally safe e-waste solutions help everyone out... but they also make sense from a financial perspective.

For example, partnering with RAKI Electronics Recycling gives you the ability to trade in old electronic equipment before it loses too much value. Trading in equipment early means you get paid more. With adequate planning, you can save your organization up to 60% of the value of the old equipment. For example, if you’re recycling $100,000 worth of computers that work but are no longer suitable for your organization, RAKI deducts expenses and provides 60% of profits from it back to your company.

You can achieve these sort and settle savings on top of the other benefits of working with RAKI, including:

  • Competitive pricing
  • Logistics, pickup, and white-glove service available nationwide
  • Secure data destruction
  • Guaranteed nothing ends up in the landfill
  • Work with a family-owned-and-operated business that’s been in operation since 1991
  • Commitment to building a long-lasting relationship with your IT department
  • And more

Minimizing Risk; Maximizing Value

In 2008, the EPA created “Responsible Recycling Practices for Use in Accredited Certifications Programs,” or simply: R2 (“Responsible Recycling Certification”). It is similar to the e-Stewards certification, setting standards for e-waste recycling for companies, and continues to become more and more strict. Working with a company with e-waste certificates makes sense for a whole lot of different reasons, such as to:

  • Improve compliance
  • Increase the security of your asset disposition process
  • Take responsibility for e-waste solutions
  • Sustain company values
  • Avoid potential fines and lawsuits
  • Apply International Association of Electronics Recyclers (IAER) and Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries (ISRI)-certified recycling processes
  • Improve asset auditing and tracking
  • Enhance public relations
