Electronics Recycling in North Dakota

Electronics Recycling in North Dakota

Business owners in the state of North Dakota should be aware of the fact that sending electronics to the landfill is not only ill-advised, but in some cases, illegal. The harmful toxins computer equipment and mobile devices may contain have been found to pollute the environment, which is why certain municipalities, including the City of Sioux Falls, have made it illegal to dump e-waste.

Although this is not a statewide law, the state of North Dakota does encourage responsible environmental practices where e-waste is concerned, and businesses interested in reducing their environmental impact will want to recycle e-waste. This is not only good for the environment, but also local communities, and it helps companies to build strong reputations as responsible stewards.

If your business in Bismarck, Fargo, West Fargo, Grand Forks, or Minot is interested in electronics recycling but you don’t know how to get started, the experts at SEAM are happy to help with secure and comprehensive recycling practices that deliver convenience and peace of mind.

Accepted Materials
It’s important to understand what constitutes e-waste. Just because something runs on electricity doesn’t mean it’s e-waste. For example, appliances, while electronic, are not e-waste, although parts of them may be recyclable.

SEAM is pleased to accept a variety of e-waste materials for the purposes of recycling, reducing environmental harm, and helping local businesses comply with environmental laws while doing their part for the planet. Accepted e-waste materials include:

- Desktop Computers
- Laptops
- Monitors
- Computer Components
- Computer Peripherals
- Printers
- Servers
- Cell Phones
- Handheld Devices
- A/V Equipment
- and More

How it Works
Recycling is only one part of the 3 Rs of environmental responsibility, along with Reducing and Reusing. Unfortunately, many businesses can’t afford to reduce electronics usage and turnover if they want to remain competitive, but reusing items is even more eco-friendly than recycling, which is why SEAM offers both options.

As a certified ITAD service provider, SEAM strives to deliver a variety of options for clients to dispose of their electronics. Many businesses elect to shred hard drives and other equipment and recycle parts whenever possible. When this occurs, SEAM breaks down materials to original element forms for recycling and disposal. We never export electronics or hazardous e-waste materials to developing countries, directly or indirectly.

However, you could also choose to wipe, refurbish, and sell electronics that are still usable, giving them a second life and keeping them out of the landfill. SEAM technicians assess all electronics to determine resale potential, after which data can be securely erased in preparation for remarketing. This is not only a great way to reduce waste, but in some cases, to recoup some cost when you upgrade and get rid of old equipment and devices.

SEAM is committed to providing the responsible electronics recycling options North Dakota businesses are seeking. We proudly serve a diverse range of clients, from finance, to education, to healthcare, to data centers, and more. If you’re ready to implement an ITAD strategy that includes e-waste recycling, contact the qualified professionals at SEAM today at 605-274-7326 (SEAM).
