Market Velocity’s green solutions help you to be a part of the solution, not the problem. Let us help you go green when it comes to electronic waste disposal.
Each day, electronic equipment waste adds to a growing surge of hazardous waste that threatens the environment and our health.
Of the hundreds of millions of computers, cell phones and electronic devices retired each year in the United States, only 15% to 20% are being recycled. According to a report from the National Safety Council, only 10% of the approximate 13 million computers taken out of service each year in the United States are reused or recycled. The rest end up in landfills and incinerators, shipped overseas to countries with lower environmental standards or stored to compound future disposal issues. Buried and piled up technology trash releases harmful materials into our soil and ground water. Waste burning remains the largest source of dioxins (chemical contaminants) in the United States and a major source of heavy metal contamination in our atmosphere.
With companies regularly introducing improved versions of hardware with a lifespan of as little as two years, legislation and heightened environmental awareness are pushing producers to actively move towards green waste disposal and become part of the waste reduction solution.
The new standard
Helping your customers to recycle and properly dispose of electronic waste, our solutions empower you to cost-effectively do your part to safeguard the natural environment. They also promote the refurbishing and repackaging of usable components to benefit low-income communities, non-profit organizations and those less fortunate.
Promoting and offering these advantages to your customers is a key component of any successful green initiative and environmental stewardship program. It is also the new benchmark for being a socially and environmentally responsible company.
Market Velocity is proud to comply with all of the EPA’s latest standards. The EPA works with various companies and organizations who are committed to reusing or recycling end-of-life electronics, and promotes conscientious waste management and 'ecycling' for this equipment.
