How does your recycling program work?

We transport your unwanted and obsolete electronic assets to our facility, where they are demanufactured and broken down into their valuable components to use in the manufacturing of new products. Those electronic assets that are no longer suitable for refurbishing and cannot be salvaged for components are responsibly recycled.

We provide full traceability and transparency on all recovered electronic assets and streamline every aspect of your ITAD program to deliver an efficient and profitable strategy for your business.
