Recycling your electronic waste is the right solution for today and our future.
Landfilling Computers is Illegal
In most states, laws prevent companies from depositing environmentally harmful computers and electronics into our landfills. Historically, less than 10% of obsolete computers are recycled. Most sit in a store room or closet taking up valuable office space. However, obsolete computer equipment is the fastest growing component in our landfills. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s estimates, electronic products constitute 1% of municipal waste, with more than 63 million computers retired in the U.S. annually. E-waste is growing 3x faster than other waste, and many discarded E-waste items contain toxic materials. The average desktop computer contains heavy metals and plastics that may include mercury, lead, cadmium, chromium and lithium - all potentially hazardous to our health.

All shredded paper is recycled into tissue paper products at a U.S. paper mill. Every year, our company recycles millions of pounds of shredded paper. Did you know for every 150 pounds of paper recycled, one tree is saved? It’s true. Making paper from recycled paper uses 30% to 55% less energy than making paper from trees. Also, there is 95% less air pollution created when creating paper from recycled paper versus cutting down trees to make paper.
Ship-n-Destroy instituted an employee recycling & reuse program. Our employees have been given reusable drinking containers to help reduce the use of plastic bottles and paper cups. All recyclable office materials generated from our offices are routinely recycled through our local solid waste district and not landfilled. Cardboard boxes generated from customer paper box purges are also all recycled through our local solid waste district.
