Secure E-Waste Disposal Solutions
E-Waste consists of, but is not limited to: old computers (PC and mainframe), file servers, monitors, printers, other peripheral IT equipment, telecommunications equipment (land line and cell), photocopying equipment, and audio video equipment (almost anything with an electrical cord). It is considered “E-Waste” when it is either outdated, broken or an OEM (Original Electronic Manufacturer) wants it removed from retail sales because of newer products being introduced.

Environment Safe E-Waste Disposal
The rate of generation of electronic scrap in North America is huge. It is estimated that there are approx. 85,000 tonnes of material to be recycled annually in Ontario alone – consider Canada, USA, the world? If this material continues to end up in landfill or in the wrong hands, one can only imagine the long term environmental issues.
Blue-Pencil’s proper disposition of electronic scrap is either manual dismantling or shredding operations. Once the material is downsized then it is put across magnets that remove the steel and aluminum. This material can then be sent directly to mills where it is further processed. The remaining material contains boards and precious metals that need to go to a smelter or refiner to recover the precious metals. Partnering with Blue-Pencil for your E-Waste disposal requirements not only ensures information security but environmentally ethical recycling.
