Modern Waste

Serving Orange County Since 1999

When business owners consider the impact of technology on their daily operations, they tend to forget about their recycling needs. As more businesses rely on electronic devices and equipment for successful functioning, they must move beyond employing the minimum recycling solutions used for materials like cardboard or aluminum cans. Staying successful and compliant in the modern business world necessitates comprehensive solutions for handling electronic waste and secure data.

Modern Waste  holds SERI Responsible Recycling  R2V3 Certified, ISO 18001 and OHSAS Certified, demonstrating that we met specific safety management standards and recycling electronic devices and the confidential information they hold. This maximizes these products’ value at every stage by reusing them whenever possible to extend their lifespan and reclaiming the materials when they are no longer useful. Responsible recycling practices protect the environment by conserving existing natural resources and reducing the need to mine for additional materials.

Orange County Recycling Services

Modern Waste  provides the following recycling services

electronic waste disposal

Electronic Waste

Unused, surplus, or obsolete technological equipment is considered electronic waste. This includes computers, monitors, networking equipment, servers, copiers, printers, phones, televisions, audio and video equipment, and any other personal or industrial electronic devices or equipment. If you improperly dispose of your electronic waste by having it transported to a local landfill, you are risking significant security hazards to your business and clients, along with negatively impacting local ecosystems. Modern Waste offers a range of recycling services to handle devices throughout every stage of their lifespan, reusing functional devices when possible and recycling inoperable devices to make their components into other products.

Secure Data Destruction

Confidential business information stored in documents, hard drives, or any other type of media storage should be destroyed every day to prevent unauthorized individuals from gaining access to this information. A physically intact hard drive is vulnerable to unwanted access, so wiping, erasing, or reformatting a hard drive is insufficient for managing your business’s secure data. To protect against costly confidentiality breaches, you must make sure such equipment is completely physically destroyed. Failure to follow appropriate data destruction methods can result in serious legal and financial consequences. At Modern Waste, we hold AAA NAID R2V3 Certified, ISO 18001 and OHSAS Certified for properly crushing hard drives after the data has been wiped and maintain rigorous standards of the chain of custody to ensure your secure data never reaches the wrong hands.

local shredding services

Shredding Services

When confidential information is located on paper documents instead of electronic devices, you must ensure these documents are shredded at the end of every business day to protect this information. Modern Waste  provides a customized, comprehensive plan for shredding and disposing of your important documents, beginning with a security risk assessment completed by a trained document security consultant. This professional thoroughly examines your business’s potential security risks and creates a custom solution for alleviating these risks. Employing strict chain of custody protocols along with the latest in information security technology, Modern Waste  can handle all your shredding needs and will provide a R2V3 Certified, ISO 18001 and OHSAS Certified of Destruction after every shred to confirm it has been completed.

Battery Recycling

Batteries are available in several types, but all of them contain toxic and flammable materials, such as mercury, lead, lithium, nickel-cadmium, sulfuric acid, and zinc. Allowing your batteries to reach a landfill results in serious environmental damage and may cause harm to residents around the area. As part of our R2V3 Certified, ISO 18001 and OHSAS Certified , Modern Waste is thoroughly trained and properly equipped to safely handle these hazardous materials across every stage of the recycling process. Batteries meeting certain standards are typically reused, while nonoperative batteries will be disassembled to remove valuable components for future manufacture of new products.

universal waste recycling services

Universal Waste

Unlike most waste management companies that focus on a limited selection of products, Modern Waste  offers a broad range of recycling services to meet all your business needs. Rather than researching, hiring, and coordinating services from multiple vendors, you can consolidate several recycling processes into a single bundled plan, saving you time, effort, and money. Choosing us to develop a custom waste recycling solution for you ensures that your confidential information and electronic waste are properly disposed of according to federal regulations, protecting your business, your clients, and your reputation.

Compliance & Logistics

When confidential information is collected, stored, created, disposed of, or otherwise handled by a business, this business is legally obligated to adhere to specific rules regarding this secure data. Whether on paper documents or within a hard drive, this information must be carefully managed to comply with government regulations. Modern Waste has spent over two decades providing the highest quality recycling services to clients of all kinds, including local, state, and federal government agencies, prominent financial and health care institutions, small businesses, Fortune 500 companies, and everything in between.

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.
