To save on shipping fees, many companies will find someone near you to subcontract the work to. They claim the local company will do just as good of a job, but there's no way to police the methods of these small operators in hundreds of towns. There's also little motivation to do so because the original disposal firm legally passes the liability on to the local operator. So what happens to your computers?
BOTTOM LINE: The recycling company is protected, but you're not if equipment is not properly processed and recycled.
Many disposal firms have discovered that it's much more profitable to outsource their processing services overseas because foreign companies will actually pay for unsanitized computers. They promise to remove your data, but recently a high-profile company discovered that its hard drives were being sold in Nigeria with data still on them!
BOTTOM LINE: The recycling company may be protected, but you're not if sensitive data is being sold to the highest bidder.
No middlemen here. Computers are delivered directly to PC Disposal and optional steel cages are available for an extra layer of protection. From there, computers are thoroughly processed included data removal before being sold or properly disposed of using approved EPA mthods.
BOTTOM LINE: We protect our clients. Our reputation (and yours) is backed by our $1,000,000 Guarantee.
"For us it is just too risky to give our equipment to a company that
doesn't offer the choice to not resell our equipment. PC Disposal's
end-of-life solution gives me peace of mind and confidence that my equipment
will not come back to haunt us."
"I had the opportunity to visit the PC Disposal facility. I was impressed
by operation and the great staff. I am very happy with the service."
"When you want it done efficiently and properly, PC Disposal is the

"We could not be MORE satisfied with PC Disposal! Not knowing a ton about how electronic recycling worked was an understatement when we really dug into the nitty gritty details and how VALUABLE it is to have it done PROPERLY! They went above and beyond to help with the packing, wrapping, moving and destroying of any vulnerable data we had!"
"Sprint Corporation and Time Warner pay PC Disposal...to take old equipment off their hands. The fee seems small compared with fines that can be levied should environmental regulators trace old equipment in a landfill back to a company."
"We have been using them for 15 years! PC Disposal is our one stop shop and NAID certified. They do charge a minimal fee for the data destruction in house with a full guarantee – that’s pennies compared to our clients’ data ending up in someone else’s hands."
