Q5. How can I ensure that my company’s old electronics are disposed of surely and ethically?

 Recyclers vary in their practices and you must decide which electronics recyclers can best meet your needs in terms of minimizing your environmental liability and information risk. As a minimum, you should seek out companies that are third-party certified to handle used electronics and that follow rigorous environmental standards.

However, to fully protect against data loss, environmental liability and damage to your corporate reputation, you should only use a recycler who will guarantee in writing the complete destruction of all data-carrying device components and all serial numbers, equipment identifiers and corporate logos, and who adheres to the highest standards of environmental stewardship.
