The importance of securely recycling old computer parts and equipment
With the demand for faster, better and more compact computers, many companies are forced to upgrade or otherwise be left behind. Data capturing businesses, banks and huge retail stores may be faced with hundreds of outdated computers that use up valuable space. And it's not only complete computer systems. After a series of upgrades, IT departments are often up to their ears in old peripherals, motherboards, hard disks and cables. Often, the old hard drives still contain sensitive information and may of the computer parts are manufactured with materials that can be extremely toxic to the environment.
Not all computer parts recyclers are alike
There are a number of companies that can help with the recycling of computer parts, but it is important to choose a company that you can trust. The process needs to be done correctly to avoid breaking the law or losing data to unsavory persons. PC Disposal has extensive experience in this field. We take ownership of your equipment and remove all identification and licenses from the machines. Hard drives are destroyed completely or erased, so you have peace of mind that it will not fall into the wrong hands. Plus, we will provide your business with a certificate of compliancy. Some of the used equipment may be viable for further use by charitable institutions or for training companies.

Who is PCD?
PC Disposal is part of a family of technology businesses started in 1989. Kory Bostwick founded PC Disposal in 1998 because he was concerned that there were few environmentally-friendly options for companies who wanted to dispose of the toxic glut of obsolete computers that were filling offices – and ultimately – landfills.
With this idea in mind, PC Disposal has grown into one of the largest computer disposal firms in the industry. We've now expanded to provide recycling services for all types of electronic waste. In addition to home consumers, our clients include companies of all sizes throughout the United States and Canada, and many of our clients are Fortune 500 companies and U.S. government agencies.
