Securis recognizes the absolute need for proper domestic recycling services. That’s why we recycle 100% of all materials that are received at our Maryland facility in the US.
At Securis we never export hazardous materials to developing countries as defined by the Basel Action Networks (BAN). By complying with BAN, Securis exceeds U.S. federal mandates and instead is compliant with the widely adopted, international standard.
All downstream processors that receive shredded material from Securis are required to complete an Agreement for Responsible Disposal of Sensitive Materials. At this time all magnetic media is incinerated using the cleanest methods available. Smelting documentation can be provided upon request. All metal based material is sent to a domestic based refinery where it’s refined for different types of metals.
We make sure all of your e-waste recycling and complete data destruction will remove all traces of your information and turn into waste that is not hazardous to our planet or our neighbors.
Securis scans each item for IT recycling and keeps an inventory list for all recycled electronics and shredded hard drives. We do this to help you stay compliant with your auditing requirements and so you will always be in the loop for legal protection purposes.
