July Special: Fill My Truck for $300
It’s time to clean out your junk closet… from now through July 31, 2020, CyberCrunch is offering a special electronics recycling program: For just $300, we’ll haul away an entire truckload of your old electronics — that’s 8 to 12 pallets of old computers, laptops, servers and devices out of your hair for one low rate.
This offer is available to our customers in the Pittsburgh and Philadelphia metro areas. Surcharges will apply to TVs, large appliances, bulbs, batteries or smoke detectors. Standard rates apply for data destruction or other special services.
Don’t leave that pile of old equipment sitting around for another month. Call us today to schedule your own Fill My Truck event!
The Cost of Electronics Recycling
One question that we get asked regularly is “Why do I need to pay for electronics recycling? Aren’t the costs offset by the value of materials recovered?”
As with most things, the adage “you get what you pay for” is true for electronics recycling as well. These are just a few of the factors that go into the costs of the secure, responsible electronics recycling provided by CyberCrunch.
The Value of Materials
In the past, recyclers could offset some of their costs by separating and reselling raw materials, including certain plastics and precious metals. But most plastics that go into electronics nowadays contain fire retardants and other chemicals that make them difficult or impossible to reuse directly. And as devices have gotten smaller and smaller, the quantity of valuable materials that can be recovered has shrunk as well.
The Cost of Handling Waste Responsibly
With less recoverable material in today’s electronics, the cost of dealing with byproducts in a responsible manner has increased. Unscrupulous recyclers may resort to methods like incinerating, landfilling or illegally exporting waste products. But when you choose a trustworthy recycling company like CyberCrunch, you can rest assured that all materials are being handled in an environmentally friendly manner.
Certifications and Liabilities
To protect our customers, we’ve invested in certifications to prove that both our recycling and data destruction services meet industry and regulatory standards. We maintain R2 Responsible Recycling certification for our environmental practices and NAID AAA certification for our data destruction services. These require ongoing investment to maintain compliance with their standards and to keep your business secure and compliant.
While our services aren’t free, CyberCrunch aims to give you the most value for your dollar by providing the fastest, most convenient, and most secure recycling services in the country. Contact us today for a free electronics recycling quote.
New Flat-Rate Boxes for Mail-Back Recycling Service
Last month, we highlighted how our convenient mail-back recycling and data destruction service can help you manage the hardware lifecycle for your remote employees. With just a few clicks, we’ll generate a prepaid shipping label, send it to your remote employee, and then handle the rest of the data destruction and recycling process for you.
To make things even easier for you, we’re pleased to announce that we now offer flat-rate mail-back recycling boxes. We can now send your remote worker a shipping box and prepaid label — all they need to do is place their equipment inside and send it back to us, and we’ll ensure that the data is destroyed, the equipment is recycled, and that you’re provided with a serialized destruction report.
