Material received at this facility is demanufactured and recycled, or it is reused. Demanufacturing involves manually breaking down equipment into its separate components prior to shredding or recycling.

Data Security
The Electronics Recovery Center is equipped with state-of-the-art data security equipment to ensure that sensitive or confidential information is not compromised. From the moment the material arrives at the facility, it is tracked using a barcode system and security cameras. Once demanufactured, hard drives are kept in a locked cage until all data they contain is destroyed. Customers desiring priority data protection can pay a special handling fee to obtain copies of video from surveillance cameras, tracking reports and certificates of destruction.
