San Francisco County Recycling Services

Modern Waste provides the following recycling services

electronic waste disposal

Electronic Waste

Electronic waste is technological equipment that has been labeled surplus, obsolete, or unused. It includes various electronic devices and equipment most businesses use every day, such as computers, monitors, servers, networking equipment, and other personal or industrial electronics. Because electronic waste often contains toxic materials, it cannot be taken to a landfill like other waste. It must be disposed of according to specific guidelines to protect the environment and the area’s residents. Modern Waste handles every form of electronic waste, reusing devices that are still functional and disassembling unusable devices to harvest valuable materials.

Secure Data Destruction

If you no longer need confidential information located in documents or within a hard drive, you must immediately destroy this secure data to prevent unauthorized access and improper use. Erasing, wiping, and reformatting a hard drive is insufficient for totally removing confidential data, and the only way to truly prevent a confidentiality breach is to physically destroy the hard drive. A breach of confidentiality may severely damage your business’s reputation and lead to financial liability or prosecution. As a certified AAA NAID recycling company, Modern Waste has the knowledge and resources to destroy or crush your hard drive. We adhere to strict standards regarding chain of custody and ensure your confidential data remains confidential.

Shredding Services

Daily shredding of documents containing confidential business information is one of the easiest methods of safeguarding your secure data. As a Modern Waste client, you will receive a security risk assessment conducted by a document security consultant to identify potential risks and suggest steps to take to alleviate these risks. We work with you to determine your business needs and design a personalized, comprehensive solution for recycling management that caters to all the needs of your business. After each shred, we provide you with a R2V3 Certified, ISO 18001 and OHSAS Certified of Destruction to serve as evidence that your business actively complies with government recycling guidelines.

Battery Recycling

Numerous types of batteries exist, but most of them can be recycled using safe, responsible methods. Batteries contain toxic and flammable liquids, metals, and materials, so they cannot be placed in a landfill along with regular waste. Due to its specific type, each battery must undergo certain processes to ensure it is safely recycled. Training and in-depth knowledge are necessary to complete these processes properly. Part of the R2V3 Certified, ISO 18001 and OHSAS Certified we hold at Modern Waste involves learning about the rigorous safety standards that protect the environment and promote residents’ health.

universal waste recycling services

Universal Waste

Many recycling companies offer limited services, meaning you are forced to coordinate various companies’ services to meet all your business recycling needs. Modern Waste allows you to avoid this annoying, time-consuming process by consolidating our services into an all-in-one bundled plan. We employ the most innovative information security practices to destroy your confidential information, from shredding paper documents to crushing hard drives. This protects your business while saving you substantial amounts of time and money.

Compliance & Logistics

Because government regulations have detailed the proper methods for businesses to dispose of items such as electronic waste and secure data, you need to examine your recycling management’s logistics and ensure your business complies. Any business that deals with confidential information, whether through creating, collecting, storing, disposing of, or otherwise handling this information, must abide by these regulations. At Modern Waste , we offer the integration of several recycling services into one simple, easy solution that protects your secure data and electronic waste from disastrous information breaches.

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.
