Electronic Recycling

Professional Computer and Electronic Recycling Services

electronic recycling

E-waste is a rapidly growing concern in our high-tech world. Heavy metals and synthetic materials which do not break down safely are used to make most modern electronics. And while a lot of thought is typically given to functionality, features and price when purchasing new new equipment, the need to plan a disposal process for these sophisticated devices can sometimes come as a surprise. This is where Computation comes in.

At Computation Ltd., we take great pride in the waste diversion ratio we achieve in computer and electronics recycling. According to our custom-designed Environmental Management System (EMS), we have successfully reduced the waste emitted from our facility to a level approximating that of a single-family home. 

We have been providing businesses, corporations and families with environmentally sensitive electronic recycling in Toronto and across Canada, in tandem with secure electronic data destruction services, since 2001. These services are essential in delivering a complete solution to clients committed to not only complying with environmental and privacy-related regulations and norms but also staying steps ahead. Our goal is to inspire everyone to recycle their obsolete TVs, computers, laptops, servers, copiers, routers, switches, printers, phones and other electronics rather than sending them to the landfills.

With Computation Ltd. as your electronic recycling manager, you can be confident that your business’ or home’s electronic devices are data free and are diverted from landfills. To learn more about Canada-wide electronic recycling, give us a call today at (416) 629-5667.

 

The Electronic Recycling Process in Canada

  • Collect information on the volume and type of equipment for disposal, data destruction and reporting/certificate of recycling requirements
  • Collect logistical information such as pick-up address or desire to deliver, and timing (urgent, deadline, not-pressing)
  • Provide your business, corporation, or home with an accurate quote
  • Once we receive approval for electronic recycling, we assign staff and schedule a pick-up or delivery
  • Complete any necessary onsite processes at your site such as inventory taking, data destruction, and/or drive removal
  • Collect, pack and load materials onto our truck
  • Deliver all items to our electronic recycling facility
  • Unpack and audit materials while sorting items into various processing categories, such as data destruction, dismantling, shredding, recycling and refurbishing
  • Equipment received is tracked by our system, and a certificate or customized asset management report is issued upon processing completion

Recycling and refurbishing processes take place locally in our electronic recycling facilities, and in neighbouring provinces and states. We dismantle and recycle equipment unsuitable for reuse for its raw material content. Materials that are considered good for reuse are tested using professional computer software programs. We optimize memory, processor speed and hard drive capacity to rebuild and repair computers.

We Protect Your  Data Privacy 

The issue of securely destroying electronic data to maintain privacy is one that touches us all. As a result, depending on your preference, we either physically destroy your disks or carefully erase your personal and business’ confidential information and files before donating or recycling your desktop computers or laptops. Deleting files, formatting devices or restoring the operating system to factory settings is not sufficient to protect against theft. However, when you drop off your personal or business’ computers, our team uses secure data destruction to eliminate the liability associated with data theft and loss.
