Office E-Waste – Relocating an office space has many moving parts. One of the biggest tasks is moving servers, computers, printers and other electronic equipment. When you’re moving an office, it is the perfect time to sort through your company’s devices and discard the electronics that are no longer working. However, disposing of retired electronics is a complex process. There is Mother Earth to consider and the security of your data. Tragically, 80% of the 45 million tons of electronic waste, produced globally each year, is thrown into landfills or incinerated. This allows toxic materials to pollute our soil, water and air.  Now, it’s easy to stop this destructive behavior.  We’ve partnered with Homeboy Electronics Recycling because they have the skills to avoid landfills!
