Discount PC is very conscious of our environment and we do everything possible to economically repair our inbound stream of gently used IT assets, such that they can be reused reliably for years to come. Landfill avoidance and reuse are a core part of the Discount PC business model.
When computers can’t be reused or repaired, we route those components to downstream recycling partners who have Responsible Recycling Practices (R2) and/or the e-Stewards recycling certification. Partnering with certified recyclers ensures these unrepairable products are properly recycled, avoiding landfills and minimizing harmful exposure.
Discount PC also understands the critical importance of protecting your confidential data. When we receive equipment with remaining client data on any drive or memory component, our technicians wipe the data clean using industry standard data erasure protocols. This ensures all the client’s data is fully wiped and purged, forever. If the hardware is damaged such that the data can not be completely erased, these data storage products will be physically destroyed and recycled for their raw materials.
