WEST DEPTFORD, N.J., Dec. 8, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Although it is illegal to throw electronics in the trash, many people have no idea how to safely dispose of old computers, cell phones and other electronic devices.
DocuVault now enables communities in the Delaware Valley to provide their residents with a convenient solution, by offering electronics drop-off for recycling as an added service option at document shred events. The service offers a simple way to safely get rid of many electronics that cannot be readily disposed of through regular trash pick-up.
Keith DiMarino, president of DocuVault, notes that while electronics recycling events happen in different parts of the country, they are not common in the Delaware Valley. "We're excited to fill the gap by facilitating secure e-waste disposal at community events our area," he said.
The electronics drop-off can take place in conjunction with a document shred event if the event organizer arranges to have this added service. Electronic items are placed in a secure DocuVault truck by a professional technician. They are then taken to a certified e-waste recycler that maintains a 100% zero-landfill guaranteed process.
E-waste recycling averts damage to the environment that can happen when hazardous materials found in electronics leach into water, air and soil. It also helps prevent identity theft by ensuring that any data contained within items that are dropped off is securely wiped or destroyed.
To ensure each community event is a success, DocuVault provides clients with logistical support, safety recommendations, and an information packet with details on how to organize and promote a shred/recycling event.
"Much of our business is about being eco-friendly," said DiMarino. "We've seen how popular community document shred events are for promoting responsible recycling. Adding an option for electronics drop-off makes these events even more useful in making it easy to go green."
Items accepted for e-waste drop-off include:
- Computer, computer tower, laptop, tablet
- Flat screen monitor
- Keyboard, mouse and other accessories
Municipalities, organizations and businesses that are interested in booking a shred event with e-waste drop-off can contact the DocuVault sales team at 215-856-5160.
