Los Angeles County Recycling Services

Modern Waste provides the following recycling services

electronic waste disposal

Electronic Waste

Electronic waste consists of unused, surplus, or obsolete technological equipment, including computers, monitors, servers, networking equipment, printers, copiers, audio and video equipment, televisions, phones, other personal electronics, industrial equipment, and more. In addition to the serious security risks caused by improper disposal of electronic waste, these devices include lead and mercury that significantly impact local ecosystems when left in landfills. Modern Waste provides asset tracking and recovery for functional devices that can be resold, disassembles inoperable devices, removes components for reuse, and recycles unusable components to recover valuable materials.

Secure Data Destruction

Documents, hard drives, and other forms of media storage containing confidential information must be destroyed to prevent this data’s unlawful use. Many businesses manage old hard drives and other hardware through erasing, wiping, or reformatting. However, information can still be retrieved from these devices if they are still physically intact, meaning the only way to ensure the destruction of your secure data is through physical destruction. Neglecting to adequately destroy this data amounts to a serious confidentiality breach that may result in prosecution, financial liability, and long-term damage to your company’s reputation. Modern Waste operates according to strict chain of custody protocols and is AAA NAID certified for the physical destruction of hard drives, completed after thorough data wiping.

local shredding services

Shredding Services

Shredding important documents should be done every day to ensure your business’s confidential information remains private and secure. Modern Waste safely and securely destroys and recycles your documents, and our services can be scheduled daily to provide the highest level of protection. First, a document security consultant will conduct a security risk assessment at your business to identify potential risks and make suggestions for mitigating these risks. Then we destroy your documents following strict chain of custody protocols and using the latest technology. After each shredding service, you will be provided with a Certificate of Destruction that confirms your information was securely destroyed.

Battery Recycling

Batteries contain various toxic and flammable materials, such as lead, mercury, lithium, nickel-cadmium, zinc, sulfuric acid, and plastic. Improper disposal of batteries poses a serious hazard to the environment and the health of the community. Different types of batteries feature different materials, and each type requires different processes for safe recycling and recovery of usable materials. Modern Waste is R2 certified to handle these dangerous materials according to the strictest safety standards. Batteries that meet certain testing requirements may be reused, while defective batteries are disassembled and integrated into the manufacture of new products.

Modern Waste was a big help in taking old files and shredding as we prepare for relocation. Thank you for your honesty and integrity in running an outstanding organization.

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.
