Join 4THBIN in taking part in a sustainable summer!
With the summer months comes a lot of fun, but it also means an increase in e-waste. That's why 4THBIN is here to help you reduce your environmental footprint and keep our planet healthy. As one of the Earth’s most significant pollutants, e-waste volumes are expected to reach 74 million tonnes annually by 2030. Electronic assets contain many different kinds of toxic materials, including lead and mercury--both extremely harmful to humans and the environment. When e-waste is exposed to the blazing summer heat, toxic components are released into the air, creating severe threats to the atmosphere. Those toxins will then seep into soil and groundwater, posing significant harm to the Earth and all its inhabitants.
While summer is the perfect time to relax and enjoy the outdoors, it is still possible to prioritize sustainability while soaking up the sun! We've compiled some of our favorite ways to minimize e-waste that can easily fit into all of your summer plans!
E-Recycling: Take action against the fastest growing component of the municipal waste stream in the United States this summer with 4THBIN’s secure and sustainable e-waste recycling solutions! Aside from posing major threats to the environment, the improper recycling of e-waste comes with many hidden risks, including data security and regulatory concerns. As one of the industry’s most certified e-recycling solutions providers, 4THBIN is looking forward to helping with all your e-recycling needs this summer! 4THBIN is certified by NAID for data erasure and destruction and e-Stewards for recycling - ensuring that all services are completed securely and sustainably.
Data Center Decommissioning: Easily retire your data center this summer with 4THBIN’s certified crews! There is no better time than the summertime to move to a cloud-based service, relocate your equipment to a new location, or simply disconnect old servers. 4THBIN’s data center decommissioning is seamless and secure, minimizes business disruption, and offers a variety of services to meet your unique decommissioning needs.
IT Asset Disposition & Recovery: Eliminate data security and environmental risks while maximizing returns on end-of-life electronic assets this summer with 4THBIN’s IT Asset Disposition services! Typically, excess IT equipment still holds great value - meaning it can be tested, refurbished, and re-marketed for resale. 4THBIN can help if you are looking to sell IT assets this summer, or can even advise on your long-term IT asset value recovery and disposition plans!
This summer, we are taking steps to reduce our environmental footprint. Currently, only 17 percent of global e-waste is collected and properly recycled each year. The need for secure and sustainable recycling of end-of-life electronic assets is strong and urgent.
With the heat and summer sun, it’s time to get outside and have fun! 4THBIN is here to help ensure your summer is both sunny and sustainable. At 4THBIN, we have helped our clients recycle over 10 million pounds of e-waste, which has helped reduce over 14.5 million pounds of greenhouse gas emissions and eliminated over 298k pounds of toxic metals and lead from our landfills.
