The Dangers of Improper Lab Equipment Disposal

Many pieces of medical and scientific laboratory equipment used today are manufactured with components that, when not properly disposed of, pose a hazard both to human health and the environment. These include a number of heavy metals such as:

 

  • Mercury
  • Cadmium
  • Chromium
  • Palladium
  • Arsenic
  • Lead
  • …and more.

 

Improper scientific equipment disposal can lead to these and other pollutants entering the air we breathe, the water we drink, and the food we eat. This can lead to serious health issues, including neurological conditions, respiratory illness, increased risk of miscarriage, and multiple kinds of cancer.

NOTE: Please note that any medical or scientific equipment that has been exposed to hazardous levels of radiation, biological agents, or chemical contaminants can not be accepted by Newtech Recycling. As an R2 Certified Recycler, we are equipped to offer e-waste lab equipment disposal services, not biohazard waste disposal services. Before any laboratory equipment or machinery can be collected for disposal, your organization must ensure that it is free from any harmful contaminants.

The Medical Equipment Recycling Process

To make sure that your laboratory and medical equipment e-waste is collected and disposed of correctly, our recycling process has been meticulously divided into a number of isolated, self-contained steps. Each step in the process is overseen by trained professionals, and every piece of e-waste we collect is rigorously cataloged and tracked.

 

From start to finish, our recycling process is as follows:

 

  1. Logistical Planning
  2. Electronics Pickup
  3. Corporate Cleanout
  4. Inventory and Testing
  5. Data Destruction
  6. Hard Drive Shredding
  7. Electronics Recycling
  8. Certification

 

Newtech Recycling is proud to offer the widest spectrum of pharmaceutical and medical equipment disposal available today. In addition to collecting and disposing of laboratory equipment, electronics, and hardware, we can also help you remove furniture such as metal workstations, cabinets, and storage racks.

 

Roughly 98% of plastics, glass, and metals found in equipment used in the medical pharmaceutical industry can be fully recycled and kept out of landfill sites. This not only helps keep harmful pollutants out of the environment, it also allows useful materials to be reintroduced into the manufacturing process to be used in the creation of new products.

Ensure Secure Laboratory Equipment IT Disposal

Hospital and laboratory computers and data storage devices contain incalculable amounts of sensitive information. From patient records to personal data to accounting files and trade secrets, there’s no end to the amount of damage that could potentially be done should your IT hardware fall into malicious hands.

 

Remember: even hard drives that no longer function, have been wiped and formatted, or have been physically damaged are not immune. A skilled technician may be able to restore and access any data that has ever been stored on that drive. The only way to ensure truly secure data disposal is to use a professional data destruction service like Newtech Recycling.

 

Our data destruction facilities offer 24/7 surveillance so that you always feel confident in the knowledge that your sensitive information is in good hands. Once your hard drive or server enters our facility, it is carefully monitored and tracked at all times. Newtech Recycling utilizes EMP disruption to completely wipe the data from your devices, then shreds each and every drive to the point of being irreparable and fully safe from hackers and data miners.
