Leading Area Technology Recycling Firm Achieves Top Industry Designation for Responsible Recycling Practices

Elkridge, MD, October 18, 2013 --(PR.com)-- The security and privacy of customer data and information always seems to be top of mind for companies and consumers nowadays, but what happens when the hardware and systems a company is using are trashed? Paper files get shredded, but how can companies make sure their data doesn’t get thrown out with the digital bath water?

In an area that’s becoming increasingly known as the nation’s digital security capital, the DC-Baltimore corridor has an overwhelming number of agencies and contractors that need to be sure their customer data or proprietary information is being disposed of properly. A Better Way Computer Recycling, Maryland’s leading electronics recycler, works to responsibly dispose of computers and other electronic equipment in a way that companies can not only feel secure about, but also environmentally proud of.

And now, companies can feel even safer. A Better Way has achieved Responsible Recycling Practices for Electronics Recyclers (R2:2008) certification—one of the electronics recycling industry’s most noteworthy designations—for its flagship Elkridge, Md. warehouse location. This means that companies can recycle their old computers and electronics with A Better Way and be sure that their “e-waste” is properly and securely disposed of. With an on-site industrial shredder, companies can be sure their data is truly destroyed and hard drives can’t be accessed after they’re properly recycled.

“We take the security of our customers’ data very seriously,” said Jeremy Limmer, co-founder of A Better Way Computer Recycling, “so preparing ourselves to achieve this certification felt natural. We’re very proud of this milestone and we’re looking forward to helping even more companies in this area recycle their old computers and electronics in a way that they can feel secure about while also helping our local environment.”

To achieve this prestigious certification, A Better Way was evaluated by independent third-party auditors that thoroughly analyzed the company’s programs and operations, rating them for proper protocol in more than 50 functional areas. Companies that hold the R2:2008 Certification have been identified as best-in-class for the areas of data security, environmental practices, proper e-waste disposal, and appropriate equipment repurposing.

In addition to its new R2:2008 certification, A Better Way Computer Recycling assists companies with:

· Computer and Electronic recycling with full asset management tracking capabilities using bar code technology.
· Certified Data Destruction by purging, degaussing, or shredding hard drives and any magnetic media.
· Consignment Services for equipment too valuable for recycling.
· Electronic waste consulting.
· De-installation of data/server rooms, offices, warehouses, etc.
· Custom electronic recycling programs setup for individual needs and requirements.
· Electronics logistics and transportation.

A Better Way Computer Recycling is also recognized as an official Call2Recycle drop-off center, where local business and citizens can dispose of rechargeable batteries and old cell phones.
