Technology is always changing the way we do business. Today, digital files and memos often take the place of hard copies. That said, there will always be a need for physical paper documents. That’s where office printing and photocopying machines come in.


Regardless of what industry your company is in, from accounting to law to medical care to marketing, chances are your office has its own copier. In fact, it might have multiple copiers spread out across different floors or departments. Copy machines are ubiquitous in the modern business world.


With so many of these devices out there, however, the potential for improperly discarded e-waste finding its way into landfills (and, from there, into our air, water, food, and bodies) is massive. Fortunately, Newtech Recycling is proud to offer comprehensive copier disposal and printer disposal services.


Let us take your unwanted office equipment and recycle it in a way that is safe, responsible, and environmentally friendly. Contact Newtech Recycling today.

Why You Should Recycle Old Copier Machines

Proper photocopier disposal is important for a number of reasons. First and foremost, copy machines are manufactured using a number of substances and components that can be toxic to the environment and to human health. These substances include heavy metals like lead, cadmium, and chromium, as well as brominated flame retardants (otherwise known as polychlorinated biphenyls, or PCBs) which are extremely dangerous if inhaled.


These and other pollutants are introduced into the atmosphere when copy machines are discarded improperly in landfills, where they degrade over time, releasing their internal components. E-waste recycling helps keep these components out of the environment, and can even lead to the reclamation of reusable materials that can be introduced back into the manufacturing process, thus reducing resource waste.


It is also important to note that most modern-day photocopiers contain hard drives where data is stored. Photocopiers that have been carelessly discarded, rather than going through a copier recycling process, are a virtual gold mine of sensitive information for hackers and data miners. Even data that has been deleted or hard drives that have been reformatted can potentially be reconstructed by a skilled technician.

To ensure that your proprietary and confidential business data is kept safe and out of the wrong hands, Newtech Recycling offers unbeatable photocopier data destruction services. We disrupt the drive’s internal mechanisms using EMP waves, making them incapable of retaining information. Then, just to add an extra layer of protection, we completely destroy the device using specialized hard drive shredding equipment, making it absolutely impossible for anyone to ever steal your data.
