Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

What better way to honor St. Patrick’s Day than committing to recycling your retired IT assets in the most environmentally-friendly way possible?

Sustainability is a win for all of us. Not only does Securis offer zero-landfill computer recycling, but provides a thorough data destruction suite to keep sensitive information safe.

With Securis, keeping it green is much easier than finding a leprechaun, or that elusive pot of gold at the end of a rainbow (but never give up!).

Securis Doubled Its E-Waste Recycling Efforts in 2021

In 2021, Securis collected 6,015,125 pounds or just over 3,000 tons of e-waste to refurbish, reuse, or recycle. That’s the equivalent of about 6,000 grand pianos, 3,000 leatherback sea turtles, or 30 blue whales. This was almost 50% more than what we recycled in 2020.

As more businesses returned to the office, they resumed their typical technology refresh cycles which contributed to this increase. Additionally, a wider variety of electronics can be recycled, including monitors, servers, hard drives, phones, and more.

As younger consumers are focusing on environmental impact, more businesses are shifting their focus to make sustainable changes. Businesses may utilize electronic waste recycling programs like ours to improve their environmental contributions.

While we’ve seen an increase in the number of electronics recycled, as of 2019 only 17.4% of discarded electronics are recycled. The rest of the discarded electronics go into landfills and can end up in our water sources.

We also saw growth in our refurbish sales last year, another way of recycling electronics. Recent supply chain issues lead businesses to seek alternative options when looking for computers and other electronic products. Many found our refurbished computers a cost-effective option when dealing with these nationwide shortages. Most of our employees use refurbished workstations!

72,181 Electronic Devices Destroyed

In addition to recycling e-waste, Securis destroyed 72,181 devices utilizing our certified data destruction services. Our data destruction services help prevent data breaches. Through degaussing and physical destruction services like microshredding and hard drive shredding services, we help protect your sensitive data.

These hard drive destruction services can be completed on-site with our mobile shredding capabilities. This helps our clients eliminate any chain of custody issues that they might have with off-site hard drive shredding.

We expect to see continued growth in 2022. In the past year, we have seen an increase in the types of devices where we destroy data and recycle. We received more phones and tablets this year than in previous years.
