IT Recycling


When it’s time to retire your end of life IT hardware, it’s crucial to ensure that your assets are disposed of safely and securely. Not only can toxic electrical components pose a public health risk if diverted to landfills, but data must be destroyed in order to prevent a potentially costly data breach.

In fact, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates that only 12.5% of 9.4 million tons of e-waste is properly recycled, making the proper disposition of old IT assets a growing concern.

At Trace TM, we take the recycling of IT assets seriously. We have the knowledge and tools to provide you with a streamlined solution to the problem of housing outdated and unneeded hardware.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why do we need electronic waste recycling?

With millions of tons of e-waste entering landfills annually, recycling used electronics components clearly becomes a wise choice. Not only does e-waste recycling prevent toxic compounds from entering the environment, but it allows materials to be reused as marketable commodities.

In addition, properly destroying and recycling of your hardware will ensure that sensitive data is destroyed and not left exposed.

Is your electronic waste recycling process certified?

Trace Technologies recycling processes are certified to ISO 140001 and RIOS R2 standards. In addition, we’re regularly audited by the EPA and are compliant with the Federal Resource Conservation and Recovery Act.

Do you provide old laptop recycling services?

Yes. In addition to laptops, we can handle any type of electronic devices, including desktop computers, servers, and mobile phones.

Do you operate your own electronic waste recycling center?

Yes. Our IT recycling services include providing safe transit of your used electronic goods to our secure and modern destruction facility. As well, all of your goods will be securely locked away until destruction occurs to ensure that the integrity of any residual data will be preserved.

How secure is your recycling of electronic waste?

Not only do we securely keep your unwanted electronic waste locked, we ensure that any potentially sensitive data is never exposed to anyone. Your e-waste will never be donated to a third party, be refurbished or put until landfills.

How does your IT recycling process work?

First, all wires and recyclable materials are removed and sent for refining. Larger pieces are crushed, with the pieces separated by weight. Metal pieces are sent through a refining process, while metals themselves are melted down and sent to manufacturers to be turned into new hardware.

Do you provide a paper trail regarding your recycling of e-waste?

Yes. Not only do we ensure that any sensitive data is destroyed, but we provide full audit trails and reports to prove that your hardware has been safely disposed of.
