Electronic devices retain value even when they no longer work. However, many individuals simply throw their electronics into the trash can if they stop functioning or become outdated or obsolete. Valuable material is lost when this happens, as the devices contain precious metals that can be recovered and reused along with sensitive information that must be protected. — Urban Mining PBC works with private businesses, government organizations, schools, and community organizations to collect these devices and recycle them.
"Precious metals found in electronics include gold, silver, copper, tin, zinc, palladium, and platinum. All can be recycled for use in new electronics, automotive parts, jewelry, and more. In addition, plastic components from the devices may be recycled for use in new electronic devices or for other purposes such as making garden furniture. We are here to help individuals and organizations recycle these goods to protect the planet and provide a better future for all," Steven Kaufman, spokesperson for Urban Mining PBC, announces.
Millions of tons of electronic equipment are recycled every year in this country. However, owners need to ensure their personal data is removed from these devices before turning them in for this purpose. This is only one of the many services (https://www.urmining.com/services/) offered by Urban Mining today.
"We also assist with IT asset disposition, impact reporting, and more. When we are contacted regarding our services, we work with the client to determine which will best meet their specific needs. Custom solutions are available. Whether a client wishes to have items refurbished and sold or wants to ensure no carbon footprint is left from the disposal of the assets, we can help," Kaufman continues.
Healthcare providers often come to mind when a person thinks of personal data and how it must be protected. Nevertheless, numerous industries (https://www.urmining.com/industries-served/) benefit from the destruction of data during the electronics recycling program. For example, educational institutions must make certain their data is protected at all times while remaining in compliance with all regulations.
"Our team ensures this is the case, regardless of what industry a person or company is involved in. We recognize the importance of protecting sensitive information from falling in the wrong hands. Contact us today to learn how we can be of assistance to you," Kaufman states.
