Serving Sacramento County Since 1999

Not only must they obtain, distribute, and master new technology, but they must also understand how to properly recycle electronic equipment and devices after they are no longer functional. You probably already receive some form of recycling services, but they are likely inadequate to meet the ever-expanding demands associated with running a modern business.

Modern Waste provides the following recycling services

electronic waste disposal

Electronic Waste

Electronic waste includes equipment and devices you likely use daily in your business, such as computers, monitors, printers, copiers, servers, networking equipment, telephones, and additional electronics employed for personal or industrial use. Placing electronic waste with the rest of your waste to be taken to a landfill can be incredibly damaging to the environment and your business’s safety. Any obsolete, surplus, or used technological equipment is considered electronic waste. It must be disposed of following specific guidelines to ensure toxic materials found within this equipment do not impact local ecosystems. Modern Waste manages all kinds of electronic waste, whether it is still functional and possible to reuse or is no longer functional and must be disassembled to recover valuable materials.

Secure Data Destruction

When you no longer require confidential information stored in documents, hard drives, or other media storage formats, it is crucial to destroy this secure data immediately. Many people mistakenly believe erasing, wiping, or reformatting a hard drive is enough to eliminate the data it contains safely. Unfortunately, a physically intact hard drive is susceptible to access by unauthorized parties. A confidentiality breach can be extremely damaging to your business reputation and result in prosecution or financial liability. The only guaranteed method of preventing inappropriate use of your data is to destroy or crush the hard drive completely. As a AAA NAID certified recycler, Modern Waste can properly destroy your hard drive according to rigorous chain of custody standards, successfully ensuring the safety of your confidential data.

local shredding services

Shredding Services

One of the simplest ways to safeguard your confidential business information is through daily document shredding. Clients of Modern Waste receive a thorough security risk assessment by a document security consultant, allowing the identification of potential risks and the recommendation of actions to mitigate them. We collaborate with you to design a customized, comprehensive recycling management solution, then complete shredding services under a strict chain of custody while employing the latest technology. After your documents are shredded, you receive a R2V3 Certified, ISO 18001 and OHSAS Certified of Destruction as documented evidence of your business’s compliance with government ordered recycling regulations.

Battery Recycling

There are various types of batteries, virtually all of which can be safely recycled. Because batteries contain toxic substances like lead, sulfuric acid, and mercury, they must not be placed with regular waste to be sent to a local landfill. Allowing these substances to accumulate and decay over time poses a severe threat to the local ecosystems and everyone living in the community. Each type of battery must undergo specific processes to be safely recycled and disposed of, which requires in-depth knowledge and training. As part of the R2 certification held by Modern Waste , we are qualified and experienced in proper battery recycling procedures and follow strict safety standards designed to promote the safety and health of the environment and its inhabitants.

universal waste recycling services

Universal Waste

Rather than hiring, scheduling, and overseeing limited services from multiple companies, you can consult Modern Waste  to design an all-in-one customized recycling solution for your business. We utilize industry-leading information security throughout the entire process of securely destroying your confidential information, whether this focuses on document shredding, hard drive destruction, or a combination of both. We bundle several recycling and disposal services into one plan through strategic consolidation, saving you time and money while promoting your business’s safety.

Compliance & Logistics

Because the government has stipulated certain regulations concerning how businesses can dispose of items like electronic waste and secure data, you must consider your recycling solution’s logistics to ensure your business remains compliant. Any business that concerns the creation, storage, collection, or disposal of confidential information must abide by governmental regulations. Modern Waste  offers you the ability to easily integrate several recycling services into one manageable solution, protecting your secure data from potentially devastating information breaches. For over two decades, we have provided services to all types of business in every industry, from leading financial institutions to Fortune 500 companies, so we have the experience to manage any of your business’s recycling demands successfully.

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.
