 DROP OFFS: We started offering the free drop off of items needing recycling after receiving so many requests from local residents. Although not our primary market or business, we are happy to be of service to the local community and environment by recycling residential obsolete or broken electronics.NO Tube or Projection style TVs or CRTs / Only Flat Screen LCD Style TVs & Monitors accepted at this time Please. We are working on trying to put together a service for recycling TVs/CRTs on the now much larger scale. Please look for information about this soon. We may need some co-operation from the public and local businesses to  implement this new service.

  Residential/Small PICK UPS: We can provide pick up service for local residents for a small fee, locally usually $35-$50, depending on location; payable at time of service via cash, company check or Credit Cart / PayPal. This fee is solely to cover our own labor, gas, overhead costs which we try very hard to keep as low as possible for you and for the sake of the environment.

 Old Tube/Projection Style TV's & CRT's: Currently we are taking a break from and getting caught up on  an overwhelming amount of  tube and projection style TV and CRT recycling. We hope to resume this service soon. 

     - FLAT SCREEN TV STYLES ONLY ARE ACCEPTED  - FREE OF CHARGE - ANYTIME NEAR OUR FRONT DOOR

Commercial Pick Ups:  Free of charge with minimum of one pallet LOCALLY (about 500lbs or 25 computer towers or comparable). The minimum requirements for free pick ups will change the further a business is away from our location. This is to cover our costs only.

        Please feel free to contact us with any questions about what might be considered comparable to the minimums stated above or for a price quote if you do not meet the minimum requirement.

Recycle Drives for Organization/Business/Community:   Available Free of Charge; time and weather permitting

 Below are a few examples of the packages we have picked up and recycled over the years:
 
 
Benefits of recycling with AfterTech:
  • No cost/Low cost Pick Ups, Recycling and Data Wipes. *Some hazardous waste can only be disposed of at hazardous landfill sights which do charge. This information can be found at the DEQ or EPA sites online. For this reason, we reserve the right to charge or to pass on only a large amount of tube or Projection Style CRT's or TV's or similar.
  • Always no Charge Pick Ups and Recycling locally for Schools, Churches, Faith based entities and possibly other extenuating circumstances.
  • We can provide a Certificate of Recycle and Data Destruction/Media Disposition according to NIST  HIPAA Compliant/, free of charge.
  • A copy of our in house audit/inventory is $1.00 per item for those wishing it.
  • Third party certification of hard drive data wipes is only $6 per hard drive, per pass (1-3 pass using zeros or other digits); depending on volume (300 wipes minimum).  We can pick up the hard drives or you can deliver them, whichever method of transporting them is easiest for you. We may charge a small fee for picking them up. Data wipes performed at your location, performed by our staff, will incur additional charges depending on location, number of hard drives, etc. Or you are welcome to use the devices and perform the erasures yourself. This incurs no additional charges. We use a top rated third party certification company (BitRaser). This service includes individual Certificates of Erasure and a full electronic report of each erasure performed.
  • We do always provide an Hold Harmless/Indemnity Agreement (Insurance against sensitive data leaks for your peace of mind. We have never had a leak due to our extensive data wipe and destruction processes.)
  • We do not require an inventory or for your items to be palatalized for us to pick up for you. We do only need enough information to determine what size truck(s), trailer(s) and crew to send. We usually hand pack our trailers for you unless you have a fork lift and prefer to palatalize your equipment and then use your forklift to place the pallets in our trailer(s).
  • We do all the packing and moving. *Occasionally we must request packing material be supplied on very large jobs.
  • We recycle a wide range of equipment and materials.
  • We provide Data wipes and/or Hard Drive destruction according to NIST / DOD / HIPAA standards: Publication 800-88 Revision 1 .
  • Free drop off for recycling is now available at our office in or near our recycling box, near our front door.

AfterTech, Inc. Recycling Services:

 

Recycling of Computer Equipment  is an important yet time consuming part of most any business. Let us do the hard work for you responsibly. We ensure keeping as much e-waste out of landfills as possible per our 'No Landfill Policy.' 

 

We can arrange for a pickup of your computer equipment to be recycled and/or destroyed at a convenient time/location for you. We  provide our own pick up crew. We can provide a copy of the audit of your equipment for a small fee ($1.00 item). We do not charge for the in house Certificate of Recycle/Media Disposition. We offer third party data wipes for $6 per hard drive/media source (minimum 300 hard drives/media sources/wipes), per pass (1-3 pass re-written with 0's or other numerical digits) via BitRaser media erasure devices. This service includes one certificate per piece of media erased and a full report of each item accessible via electronic file or print.


We can not accept Tube or Projection Style TV's or CRT's at this time. However, we do recognize the need for TV recycling and hope to again resume our programs for them soon. 


(Donations are helpful to keeping our services free of charge from  the cost of very labor intensive, dangerous de-manufacturing of CRT's and TV's when applicable. We make donating easy via PayPal; donate@aftertech.net.) 


**We are currently unable to pick up from locations with more than a few steps or up many flights of elevators/stairs unless pre-approved or pre-arranged due to insurance stipulations. Please have all equipment needing recycled brought to a location before hand near a loading dock or loading location where our trucks and trailers have easy access. Please remember, this is a free service for most companies. We do not make a lot of money doing this. Please help us to help you by having your surplus electronics ready for us to pick up at an easily accessible location. If this is NOT possible, please be prepared to pay a packing and moving fee which will be determined on a case by case basis payable at time of service via cash, company check or PayPal.


We break machines or monitors down to board level in our Oklahoma City warehouse and recycle them at the appropriate Oklahoma refineries. We request a minimum of one pallet (Locally; this minimum changes with distance from our location) per pick up to qualify for our free of charge pick up (about 25 computers). Contact us for a quote to have your equipment picked up if it does not qualify for our free of charge pick up. Fees range between $45-$60 local and up further out statewide. Call for more information, to arrange a pick up, to get an estimate or a ROI (return on investment) for your newer/larger quantities of equipment or notify us of an auction you would like us to attend and/or bid on.

Recycling Computer Equipment is the primary focus of our business. When our pick up crew comes to your location, they work quickly, neatly and thoroughly; are sensitive to your working environment. Our dress code is business casual. If you have specific needs for our crew while at your location, please advise us in advance. We will always do our best to accommodate your business codes while picking up your obsolete technology. Please have equipment ready for our drivers near the pick up location. We do not climb steps or take elevators unless possibly pre-arranged under certain circumstances.
 
Never have we leaked sensitive data. All hard drives are wiped, drill pressed and melted down with like metals at the refinery. We use the NIST Publication 800-88 Revision 1 Guidelines for Media Sanitization as our guide for how to sanitize and destroy electronic media. You can view and download a copy of this publication here. We can provide a Certificate of Recycle stating how your equipment was or will be recycled. Or we can provide third party certified data wipes by a refutable and secure company.
 
We provide a Hold Harmless/Indemnity Agreement  for your protection and peace of mind stating once picked up, we are completely legally and financially responsible for the sensitive data on your obsolete equipment. This also doubles as our pick up agreement showing chain of custody.
 
We can e-mail you an example Indemnity Agreement/Pick Up Agreement or Certificate of Recycle ahead of time upon request.
 
Please call for more information, to arrange a pick up, get an estimate/bid for your equipment or pick up if applicable, notify us of your upcoming auction or to co-ordinate a recycling event/drive. Cell Tel/Text: (405) 534-2940;  Cell Tel/Text: (405) 658-6404

(Keeping our services free of charge or minimal of cost dictates we  not hold the very expensive R2 or related Certifications at this location or perform any of the actual refining processes but instead require our local Recycling Partners to hold minimally the  R2 Certification where all items not re-used, donated are transferred to for refining purposes. We can, upon request, happily provide proof of this. We do also certify that we follow strictly all NIST, EPA, DOD, HIPAA standards.)
