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 Destruction & Recycle. We offer Mobile On Site Data Destruction. We offer third party data wipes. This service includes one certificate per piece of media erased and a full report of each item accessible via electronic file or print. We offer onsite Hard Destruction


**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. Call for more information, to arrange a pick up and/or our Mobile Onsite Data Destruction, 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.Cell Tel/Text: (405) 534-2940;  Cell Tel/Text: (405) 658-6404


 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 has AfterTech 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 an example Indemnity Agreement / Certificate of Destruction & Recycle Pick Up 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 acts as our pick up agreement showing chain of custody.
 
We can e-mail you an example Indemnity Agreement / Certificate of Destruction & Recycle Pick Up Agreement 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 coordinate 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.)
