Each year, millions of computers, monitors, cell phones, TVs and other electronics designated as “e-waste” end up in landfills in the United States. These items contain significant quantities of hazardous materials, such as lead and mercury. Because of the environmental hazards associated with these materials, businesses are prohibited from disposing of electronics in the trash. Even household e-waste is banned by Fort Collins city ordinance from the waste stream and landfill to insure toxic materials aren’t absorbed into the soil and groundwater when they are buried. Both Federal and State legislation regulates the disposal of such items.
You can be assured that Surplus Property and our downstream vendor will provide a secure and safe process for responsible, environmentally conscious electronics recycling.

Media Security and Destruction
Hard drives are pulled from computers, along with all media that potentially contains data, and processed through an industrial shredder that completely destroys the media and therefore all data*. Data destruction must ensure that sensitive, proprietary information is fully protected against identity theft and is compliant with applicable state and federal security, and/or privacy laws.
