Modern Waste

Serving Kern County Since 1999

As advancements in technology continue to expand and impact virtually every part of modern industry, many business owners face rapidly expanding recycling needs. When you contemplate how you can adapt your business to prepare for constantly evolving challenges, it is imperative to include recycling electronic waste and proper destruction of confidential data in your waste management solution. Unfortunately, the bare minimum of recycling services that only handle traditional items like glass bottles and cardboard no longer sufficiently meet modern business demands.

As a SERI Responsible Recycling (R2) certified recycler, Modern Waste demonstrates an unwavering commitment to the responsible, safe management and recycling of electronic equipment and devices. Instead of coordinating the services of multiple companies that cover only limited parts of your recycling demands, contact us to benefit from the comprehensive protection of your secure data. Dealing with one full-service company is much easier than attempting to coordinate multiple companies, and you can expect to save time and money with our bundled service plans. Our truck drivers complete daily routes throughout Kern County and can make specific pickups at predetermined times to work around your schedule.

Modern Waste provides the following recycling services

electronic waste disposal

Electronic Waste Recyclers

Surplus, obsolete, and unused technological equipment is recognized as electronic waste. This includes several devices and other forms of equipment your business probably utilizes every day, including computers, servers, monitors, networking equipment, copiers, printers, audio and video equipment, phones, televisions, and any additional electronics employed in personal or industrial uses. Because electronic waste contains toxic materials that can damage the environment and cause health risks in the community, it must be disposed of properly by qualified, experienced professionals. Modern Waste offers asset tracking and recovery for items meeting operation standards for reuse, disassembling of nonoperational devices to collect valuable components, and safely recycling any materials found to be unusable.

Secure Data Destruction

Any documents, hard drives, or other media storage tools that contain confidential business information must be destroyed before disposal to prevent unauthorized access. If confidentiality is breached, your business can be subject to financial liability, prosecution, or a permanently affected reputation. Simply erasing or reformatting a hard drive is insufficient for eliminating secure data or protecting it from being retrieved by the wrong person. Any hard drive that remains physically intact is susceptible to being accessed and used inappropriately. Modern Waste is AAA NAID certified to physically destroy hard drives and trained in the rigorous chain of custody that must be maintained throughout the recycling process.

local shredding services

Shredding Services

At the conclusion of every workday, you should be shredding any documents featuring confidential information about your business or clients. Modern Waste can safely shred and recycle your documents to effectively protect your data’s security and privacy. We direct a document security consultant to conduct a security risk assessment of your business, including discovering potential security risks and providing expert recommendations to help mitigate these risks. Based on this information, we develop a personalized solution for your business that employs the latest technology in shredding services. After every shred, you will receive a R2V3 Certified, ISO 18001 and OHSAS Certified of Destruction to confirm your documents were properly destroyed and your business is acting in compliance with government regulations.

Battery Recycling

Batteries feature various toxic and flammable materials, so they must be recycled according to appropriate safety standards. When batteries are transported to a landfill, materials like lead, mercury, and sulfuric acid are absorbed into the soil and infiltrate nearby water sources. Irresponsible battery disposal causes significant negative effects on the environment and can result in serious health issues among community members. Every type of battery includes different hazardous materials, so they must be managed with a specific recycling process to maintain safety. At Modern Waste Solutions, our R2V3 Certified, ISO 18001 and OHSAS Certified enables us to handle these dangerous substances safely, so they do not end up in local waterways.

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.
