When it comes time to move or to replace dozens of PCs at once, many Boston businesses aren t sure how to proceed. They may realize it s illegal to dispose of computer equipment in landfills, but they aren t sure what alternatives exist. Even if they want to recycle a pile of old equipment, businesses may lack the resources and knowledge to get it into a recycling program. Boston Businesses Benefit from Computer Recycling Services.
National Computer Warehouse Services offers e-recycling options to the Boston area, handling each stage of disposal to take the responsibility off the hands of business owners. If you re often faced with the need for equipment removal, here are a few ways we can help.
Old equipment poses a variety of problems for your business. It takes up space in your office that could be used for other things, creating a visual distraction and adding clutter to work areas. As the number of devices awaiting disposal increases, the pile can create an obstruction, potentially endangering the safety workers who access that area of the office space.
Removing the equipment can be just as daunting, though, with businesses tasked with deciding how to transport it offsite. Depending on the amount of equipment, a large vehicle may be required to move it from one location to another. If professionals can locate such a vehicle, they are then also required to physically move each piece of equipment, which can prove difficult for small businesses that may not have full IT departments to handle such a task.
Businesses face stiff penalties if data is compromised. If personal information like medical records, social security numbers, or account numbers falls into the wrong hands, the business will likely be forced to notify each affected customer under Data Breach Notification Laws for their area. This process not only puts customer trust in that business at risk, but it also can be costly, especially if the business is required to purchase identity protection for each of the customers under data breach notification requirements.
After we pick up your old equipment, we follow strict procedures to ensure your data remains safe from prying eyes. In many cases, hard drives are completely destroyed to remove any risk of data being compromised. Working with NCWS, you ll have the peace of mind of knowing your equipment recycling is being handled by an experienced, knowledgeable company. This allows you to focus on your own business, keeping your income in place and taking a heap of old electronics away from your office space.
