Modern Waste Solutions provides the following recycling services

electronic waste disposal

Electronic Waste

Any technological equipment that is obsolete, surplus, or unused is regarded as electronic waste. This includes a wide range of devices likely used every day in your business, such as computers, monitors, servers, networking equipment, phones, televisions, audio and video equipment, copiers, printers, and any additional electronics used for personal or industrial purposes. Electronic waste contains hazardous materials, so coordinating its proper disposal is essential to protect the environment and the residents of surrounding areas. Modern Waste Solutions provides different solutions based on the devices’ functionality, offering asset tracking and recovery for devices operational enough to be resold, disassembling nonoperational devices to harvest valuable components, and safely recycling unusable materials.

Secure Data Destruction

If you plan to dispose of any documentation, hard drives, or other media storage tools featuring confidential business information, you must ensure these materials are destroyed to prevent unwanted access. It is not adequate to erase or reformat a hard drive because when this device remains physically intact, it is vulnerable to being accessed by unauthorized parties who could use this data inappropriately. You must completely crush a hard drive to protect the information it contains, or you can face prosecution, financial liability, and permanent damage to your business’s reputation. At Modern Waste Solutions, we hold AAA NAID R2V3 Certified, ISO 18001 and OHSAS Certified, meaning we are qualified to physically destroy hard drives while adhering to a strict chain of custody throughout the process.

local shredding services

Shredding Services

When each workday concludes, you should be shredding all documents that contain confidential information involving your business and its clients. Modern Waste Solutions is skilled in safely shredding and recycling your documents to maintain your data’s security. First, a professional document security consultant will arrive at your business location to conduct a security assessment, discover potential risks, and offer advice for alleviating these risks. Then, we develop a custom solution for you, employ the latest technology to shred your documents, and provide you with a Certificate of Destruction, so you know your shredding services were completed.

Battery Recycling

Due to the presence of several toxic and hazardous materials, batteries must be recycled according to specific safety guidelines. Placing batteries in a landfill allows materials like mercury, lead, and sulfuric acid to penetrate the soil and leech into nearby water sources. This greatly impacts the environment and can cause serious harm to members of nearby communities. Because batteries come in multiple types and every type requires certain recycling processes to meet safety requirements, it is necessary to hire a recycling company with proper knowledge and experience managing these materials. At Modern Waste Solutions, our R2 R2V3 Certified, ISO 18001 and OHSAS Certified establishes that we adhere to these requirements and can safely handle dangerous substances.

Your delivery people were knowledgeable, very helpful, and courteous. They explained everything, packed up what we had on site, and set up the containers for us. They knew what we needed better than we did. Containers are easy to use. Everything’s great so far. Thank you.
