e-Waste Disposal in Lexington KY
Lexington Electronic Recycling is the place for e-waste disposal in Lexington, KY. Throwing old electronics out with your regular trash will only cause issues for the environment. Since these electronics are made of metals that may leach into the ground, throwing them out like trash would only pollute the environment long term. We have children and desire to see them grow up in a world even better than we did.
E-waste disposal covers discarded obsolete electronic devices, cell phones, laptops and more. There’s no need to stockpile your old electronics due to security concerns when Lexington Electronic Recycling will recycle them. Additionally, we offer hard drive shredding that prevents theft of your business or personal information. Eliminate old electronics with e-waste recycling at Lexington Electronic Recycling. There are thousands of electronic devices today that have made our lives easier and more convenient, even more enjoyable, but care must be taken when disposing of these items that have outlived their usefulness.
All electronics contain toxic materials that can be harmful to people and the planet. Most electronics, like smart phones and laptop computers, contain heavy metals. The wires and cables that run through all this stuff are often coated with PVC, which contains toxic additives like phthalates. Whether you’re a corporate, small business, government or residential client, it’s almost impossible to expect you to know all the ins and outs of electronic recycling, when you have more important goals to worry about. We prefer that you transfer that headache and potential liability to an IT asset manager who specializes in decommission.
The number of cell phones in usage is greater than the world population. It is crucial to dispose of computers, servers, tablets, printers, flat-screen televisions, etc., when they become obsolete. With over 12 years of experience, Lexington Electronic Recycling understands how important it is to dispose of and properly recycle old, excess and non-working computers and electronics. Rather than relegating e-waste to the landfill, unwanted electronic equipment can be refurbished, reused and recycled, conserving natural resources and reducing the energy needed to produce new electronic equipment. Recycling and, in some cases, refurbishing these electronic wastes offer a safe and responsible alternative to disposal and extends the life of these products.

Data Security - to ensure the protection of our clients’ data bearing equipment; Lexington Electronic Recycling performs in-house disassembly of electronics. This allows for less exposure than a company that only relocates your equipment. For devices that are sanitized for repurposing, we deploy up-to-date software and technology to provide the most thorough data security. All data erasure is done in strict accordance with NIST SP 800-88 standards at our certified ADT 24/7 monitored, secured facility. Our data-erasure center uses the most up-to-date equipment and methods to be certain all data containing equipment is sanitized and erased to the highest standards. All sanitization system devices are audited by our erasing equipment. If a device is nonfunctional or cannot be successfully wiped, it will be physically destroyed to prevent any data exposure. Certificates of erasure and destruction are issued upon completion of this process. For clients who prefer physical destruction of IT assets, we provide secure data destruction by way of shredding hard drives. First, we gather all data containing devices and their serial number. Then, we create a certificate of destruction after shredding. This ensures complete piece of mind for our clients.
