Total Destruction is NOT the Only Responsible Option.

Nov 15, 2022

Did you know that the United States recycles less than 25% our electronics? Over the years, more and more businesses and consumers alike have realized the environmental threats e-waste poses in the landfill, and are trying to do their part to recycle.

As education grows on the dangers of eWaste, companies who are trying to do the right thing often think that complete destruction is the only way to properly recycle equipment, usually destroying perfectly functional desktops, laptops, servers and mobile devices when they reach end-of-life to protect the data.

What many don’t realize, is that total destruction is not the only way to securely recycle IT equipment.  By using certified IT asset disposition vendors, resellers and recyclers, business can be empowered to make sustainability-focused decisions when it comes to end-of-life devices that enforce data security, while also getting more life from their technology investments.

At SEAM, it’s our goal to continue to spread this education to South Dakota and North Dakota businesses looking for responsible and secure electronics recycling options.

Reuse is ultimately the best form of recycling — getting the highest environmental benefits out of a functional device before it truly comes to end-of-life for recycling. Customers can also reap the benefits of getting value back in their pockets when devices are able to be reused vs. destroyed.

This #AmericaRecyclesDay, we are asking SEAM customers to see the impact they’ve had with the SEAM Savings Calculator below. All devices we handle are securely wiped and refurbished for reuse or responsibly recycled in accordance with our stringent data security and environmental certifications.
