Recycling Services for Gig Harbor, WA Residents
Residents of Gig Harbor, Washington are welcome to take advantage of R3eWaste’s tech recycling services. If you have a household hazardous waste drop-off for us, simply bring the materials to our local electronics recycling facility. To recycle certain types of electronics, you may be required to pay a small fee. For examples of devices that come with an additional charge, review our community guidelines.
*Exceptions include PCBs (transformers, ballast, capacitors, etc.), radioactive materials, household appliances (toasters, blow dryers, stoves, etc.), corrosive materials (such as car batteries), contaminator or hazardous medical equipment, and other materials.
The tech recycling experts at R3eWaste will collect your materials without any additional charges. We make it easy for you to go about your workday and still ensure that your unused or unwanted devices are being properly recycled. Our staff is fully insured and R2-trained.
The recycling process begins by carefully disassembling all devices that are brought to us. R3eWaste will then securely wrap and package these devices, before processing, shipping, and delivering them to our recycling center.
Inventory Management System
R3eWaste always wants to remain transparent with our customers. So that you know exactly how your devices are being processed in real-time, you can access our IMS (Inventory Management System). You’ll be able to follow the movement of materials from when they’re first received by one of R3eWaste’s facilities, to the device’s final destination. We carefully weigh every collection, as well as tagging that collection with the resident’s or company’s origin.
Whenever we receive data-bearing devices, these will be fully erased. You won’t need to worry about confidential information being left behind on devices that you donate to our facility. We utilize world-class data deconstruction software (meeting NIST and HIPAA standards) to remove all personal information or sensitive files during processing. To ensure that our data destruction capabilities are as strong as possible, R3eWaste even uses IT Asset Disposition (ITAD). The complete data wipes that we provide are guaranteed to meet the most recent DOD standards.
Customer privacy is one of our utmost priorities. When a recycling company fails to clear any data left on scanners, printers, handheld electronics, laboratory or medical equipment, fax machines, and other devices, this is a violation of key privacy laws.
Unmatched Data Destruction
In addition to recycling your electronics, we also offer data destruction services. Data destruction is the process of completely wiping electronic data from electronic e-waste. The process is often requested by customers when they recycle their equipment to provide an extra level of comfort.
At R3eWaste, we can securely destroy any hard drive or memory card that contains sensitive information in an environmentally friendly way. We understand the importance of data security and want to make sure that the information on your electronics is not compromised. We take extreme precautions to protect your data and recycle it responsibly. We are happy to offer data destruction as a crucial step to a top-notch e-waste recycling program.
