About Us

Established in 1995, we have grown to become experts in electronic device life cycle solutions which includes asset disposition, secure data destruction, and e-waste recycling.

We help organizations dispose of electronic devices in a secure, sustainable and cost-effective manner.

We start by assessing device life-cycle requirements and then we work on securing the entire disposal process from start to finish, so that nothing is left vulnerable.

Electronic devices are processed to securely destroy any residual data, maximize value recovery and minimize environmental impacts. Our Solutions provide you with peace-of-mind, knowing that your data and electronics recycling are handled in a sustainable manner. You also benefit from the value that we are able to recover from reusable components and recyclable materials.

  • Secure Pick-up of media and devices
  • Certified Data Destruction

  • Electronic device refurbishing and end-of-life recycling

  • Sustainability reporting

Vision + Mission

 

We envision a future built by a circular economy where our people and planet are secure and free of waste. Our mission is to lead the circular economy by supporting our clients with secure and sustainable electronics recycling solutions.

Philosophy

 

Our philosophy is twofold:

  1. simplify the disposal of media and information technology so that residual data stored on devices is securely destroyed.
  2. reduce CO2 gas emissions to help protect our people from the effects of climate change by extending the life-cycle of devices and by recovering precious resources from the recycling of e-waste.
