Is it illegal to dispose of electronics in landfills?
Electronic products contain pollutants such as lead, mercury, cadmium, chromium, phosphorous and lithium rendering them hazardous. Sadly these end up in landfills, where these substances leak into the groundwater and soil. To comply with local regulations, any electronic waste from non-residential sources must not be disposed of in landfills. Electronic waste must be recycled or taken to a hazardous waste facility.
What happens to my items once I’ve released them to ABM?
ABM processes all of the material domestically and responsibly. Items are tested, repaired, remarketed, dismantled and recycled. Hazardous materials and components are handled at facilities that are fully vetted and audited by the company.
Is my personal information safe?
ABM protects all data and personal information on electronics from the point of collection through transport and processing. Our free standard wiping is Department of Defense 5220.22-M and NIST 800-88 compliant.
Our Houston, Tx Electronic Recycling facilities uses ABM System's state-of-the-art shredding machines, which are specifically designed to shred the drives so that no data can ever be reconstructed or retrieved.
