There are three primary costs involved when it comes to disposing of your old electronics, hardware, and IT office equipment. Firstly, you have the cost of collection. Secondly, you have the cost of de-manufacturing and recycling. Thirdly, and this is optional, you have the cost of shredding your hard drives and data storage systems.

In terms of the actual dollar cost, some items may be free to recycle and if you purchase your office supplies through Village Office Supply (one of our community partners (www.villageoffice.com)) the cost of collection can sometimes be free as well. However, as a rule, the cost of collection and recycling is standardized to your pickup location and the type of e-waste you have. If you would like a clear guide or a quick quote, please call: 732-564-3110.

Newtech offers a nationwide e-waste collection service. Our primary / most regular collection routes cover the Tri-State and New York Metropolitan areas. In addition to collecting e-waste from New Jersey, New York and Connecticut, Newtech Recycling also regularly collects from Pennsylvania.

*Newtech Recycling only collects e-waste from business addresses. We are not able to collect residential e-waste from the homes of private individuals or residential addresses. However, if you are a resident and would like to use Newtech to recycle your electronics, you are welcome to call us and arrange a drop-off (732-564-3110). Newtech Recycling Inc. has its main collection points in Long Island (NY), and New Haven (CT), Somerset (NJ). Newtech Recycling headquarters are located at: 600A Apgar Dr, Somerset, NJ 08873, USA.

Just about anything with a plug on it is classified as e-waste. In your office, common everyday items like your computer, keyboard, mouse, printer, scanner, phone, laptop and copier are all classified as e-waste and must be recycled. Any equipment, hardware or machinery with circuit boards in it are also classified as e-waste.

Things Newtech doesn’t recycle are fridges, freezers and equipment exposed to radiation, such as x-ray machines and CAT scanners. These objects should be sent to recyclers that possess the ability to manage non-solid toxic waste. Newtech recycling primarily recycles solid electronic waste, specializing in the disposal of computer and information technology hardware. We also recycle electronics, equipment, and machinery. To see if we can handle your e-waste materials, call us: 732-564-3110.

*E-Waste cannot be disposed of with the regular trash because it will end up in a landfill site, where it may pollute the water tables and agricultural land. By law, if a business or individual, wishes to dispose of their scrap electronics, computers and IT hardware they must take it to a State authorized electronic waste recycler. E-Waste recyclers are required by the before mentioned States to recycle electronic waste responsibly.

If a company has failed to recycle its e-waste correctly, usually the company is prosecuted. However, there are cases where individual staff have been given a prison sentence for failing to ensure data has been permanently removed from IT hardware they were disposing of.

By far one of the biggest fines was received by a telecommunications company. They were ordered to pay a colossal $52 million for illegally dumping electronic waste. One of the individuals involved was sentenced to 30 months in federal prison for his role. It’s not just businesses that have been investigated, State police departments and government offices have also come under the hammer for failing to manage their electronics and IT hardware appropriately too.

Zero Waste is a philosophy that encourages the redesign of resource lifecycles so that all products are reused or at least, all of their materials are. The goal is for no trash to be sent to landfills or incinerators. The process recommended is one similar to the way that resources are reused in nature.

Thousands of companies around the USA are doing their bit to recycle by creating their own zero-landfill policies. Most businesses recycle paper, IT hardware, ink toners and even office furniture. Newtech aims to help your company with its sustainability credentials by helping you to recycle all your old computers, IT hardware and supporting infrastructure. We also issue an e-waste accreditation that proves you have recycled your e-waste responsibly.

One of the largest liabilities businesses face can come from data being recovered from old hard drives. Hard drives are in everything, from copiers to mobile devices, desktops to laptops. Software like KillDisk can help wipe the hard drive clean but some drives (especially SSD) can hide data from software wipes.

By far the most effective way of destroying data is to data purge the drive with software, re-polarize the magnetic data with an EMP and then to physically destroy the hard drive by having it shredded. It’s unlikely any data will survive the wipe, and the EMP hard drive blast that follows it adds an added layer of certainty but shredding the disk at the end guarantees data is destroyed. Using these three layers of data destruction helps protect against any one solution failing.

NAID stands for National Association for Information Destruction. NAID is the standards setting body for the information destruction industry. In order to maintain their NAID AAA Certification NAID compliant companies have to comply with regularly scheduled and unannounced audit programs.

n terms of e-waste NAID is mainly applicable to the standards required for destroying hard drives. However, NAID is the international trade association for companies providing information destruction services for a lot more than just hard drives. NAID’s mission is to promote the information destruction industry and set the standards and ethics of its member companies. We are happy to report that Newtech Recycling offers data destruction services to its clients as a member of NAID.

R2:2013 is an accreditation developed by a multi-stakeholder group, SERI, to establish the principles and standards for ethical and sustainable electronics recycling international. The requirements contained within R2:2013 certification are comprehensive, covering environmental, health and safety, and data security practices.

To further ensure the integrity and strength of the Standard, R2:2013 now requires recycling facilities (such as Newtech) to obtain certification to one or more generally accepted environmental, health and safety management systems. Newtech is R2 certified because as a global electronics recycler It’s morally and legally important to us that we ensure the highest standards and only work with the most trustworthy and reputable of businesses around the world.

Newtech brings all of the equipment we pick up to our location in Somerset, NJ. We pride ourselves in de-manufacturing and disassembling much of the equipment ourselves. Once the material has been broken down to the basic components, we send it to responsible companies who are able to repurpose the base elements into new uses. In our industry, it is all about what we call ‘Recycling the Right Way’.

*It is important to note that we are the only company in the country utilizing a dry process for handling monitors in-house.
