E-Waste Recycling NYC


We may be located at the epicenter of political power, but we’ve also gotten busy in a Burger King bathroom on the Lower East Side.  Seriously.  We’ve collected e-waste in many cities, in many places, in all kinds of weather.  With nearly two decades of data destruction and electronics recycling experience, there isn’t much we haven’t seen.  And e-waste recycling NYC is no different.

E-waste Recycling NYC


It’s no secret: New York City is the center of gravity in the West.  And with all the good and fortunate things this brings, it also brings a world of hurt in the way of e-waste generation.  Recent statistics show that New York City generates about 14 million tons of e-waste a year, a stark contrast to the mere 25,000 tons that are actually collected annually.  There are many reasons to account for this discrepancy, unfortunately.  A constant upgrading of technology coupled with a high population density and limited space is a recipe for disaster in any city.  Making it easy, efficient, and effective is key.  Coordination and logistics, everything.   


E-waste NYC Devastation



The staggering amount of e-waste produced by New York City not only insults the aesthetic integrity of the city, cluttering offices, streets and landfills, but additionally poses severe environmental hazards.  In our line of work the following is par for the course, but for the uninitiated, it goes something like this: when electronic devices (i.e. smartphones, laptops, computers, monitors, printers, etc) end up in landfills, they release toxic substances such as lead, mercury, cadmium, as well as brominated flame retardants into the surrounding soil and groundwater.  In turn, these substances contaminate water sources and harm both human beings and the ecosystem.

Furthermore, improperly disposing of e-waste contributes to air pollution.  When electronic devices are incinerated, they release harmful gases and particulate matter into the atmosphere, further exacerbating air quality issues in major cities like New York.  (Los Angeles, you know what we’re talking about.)

And finally: the energy and resources required to manufacture new electronic devices also put a sizable strain on the environment.  By recycling e-waste properly (emphasis on PROPERLY), you reduce the need for new raw materials, have a say-so in the environmental impact of e-waste, and save energy.


Partnering with eAsset Solutions



You don’t handle data destruction and electronics recycling in Washington D.C. without having the proper accreditation to back it up.  Apart from government agencies, eAsset Solutions works closely with sustainability programs for George Washington University, American University, as well as Georgetown University.

We aren’t bragging; but we are proud of our accomplishments, and of our professional staff that make it happen daily.  We understand the logistical nightmare of having to decommission a data center, for example, by Thursday afternoon, when you only got the heads up a day before. 

Or the frenzy that ensues when faced with the task of decommissioning hundreds of laptops in preparation for an upcoming tech upgrade.  We also understand that your everyday citizen simply wants to do right by the environment and recycle one or two pieces of equipment.  

For these reasons, eAsset Solutions offers flexible and custom-made solutions for your e-waste needs. 


How It Works


Assess Your Electronics


Start by assessing all your electronic devices and equipment.  What’s still functional?  What’s outdated?  Beyond repair?  By categorizing and organizing your electronics inventory, you lay the groundwork for an efficient e-waste collection.  Keep in mind: it’s not just about tidying up; it’s about critically evaluating your electronic assets and finding ways to maximize your resources while reducing waste.


Prioritize Eco-Friendly Recycling



It’s a lesson we’ve learned time and again: when electronics outlive their usefulness, responsible disposal is critical to reduce the environmental impact.  By partnering with eAsset Solutions, known for our dedication to a circular economy and eco-conscious practices, e-waste recycling NYC can guarantee that every outdated electronics device will either be repurposed or recycled in an environmentally friendly manner.

Moreover, eAsset Solutions places a premium on data destruction services to safeguard your company’s sensitive information.  By engaging our services, you simply appoint a time and we’ll handle the logistics of collecting your unwanted electronic devices at your convenience.  We ensure a secure chain of custody until each item is back at our facilities, where thorough data destruction is carried out, and all items are assessed by our professional team for reuse and/or recycling.
