E-WASTE RECYCLING - SIMPLIFIED
At Emergent, technology recycling is more than just a buzzword - it’s the heart of our business. Our mission is to help organizations of all sizes dispose of excess electronic waste in the most environmentally-friendly way possible. We take pride in providing legal compliance for technology disposal and protecting Earth’s precious natural resources at the same time.
For example, our recycling services follow stringent government standards for the proper disassembly and reuse of common electronic devices and components. We also safely manage any associated hazardous waste, toxins, or carcinogens produced as a result of the recycling process.
Furthermore, we adhere to all EPA guidelines for e-waste disposal - that means never having to worry about contamination to soil, water, air or food sources. A stark contrast to many other so called “recycling companies” who simply ship (and dump) their e-waste to developing countries.
Emergent Group is recognized as an R2, ISO 14001, and OHSAS 18001 certified organization. These designations ensure you’ll receive the highest-quality recycling services while we promote and maintain the safety and well-being of our employees.

PROTECTING OUR ENVIRONMENT
Emergent Group adheres to a strict “zero landfill” policy. This means we break down every item we receive into smaller components and recycle them into raw materials for other products.
Absolutely ZERO trash is sent to landfills or incinerators.
Many organizations are unaware of how dangerous e-Waste can be. Computers, cell phones, monitors, and batteries often contain hazardous chemicals such as lead, mercury, cadmium, and arsenic - all of which cause serious, potentially fatal health defects.
It’s not all doom and gloom, though - because recycling generates huge benefits as well.
Most electronics contain a number of renewable resources including gold, silver, aluminum, copper, glass, and plastic. Recycling these items reduces the energy required to mine and manufacture raw materials. Reuse also minimizes greenhouse gasses and toxic emissions produced as byproducts of the manufacturing process.
In fact, according to recent EPA statistics, recycling one million laptops saves enough energy to power 3,500 US homes for an entire year. And for every million cell phones recycled, we recover 35,000 pounds of copper, 772 pounds of silver, 75 pounds of gold, and 33 pounds of palladium.
When you recycle with Emergent Group, you’re not just doing the right thing, you’re also helping to make the world a safer place.
ELECTRONIC RECYCLING RULES AND REGULATIONS
While recycling is one of the best methods to protect our environment, it’s also becoming the law in many areas. Although federal recycling guidelines are still being developed, several states have taken the problem into their own hands - often levying hefty fines against violators. Not to mention the enormous PR damage environmental incidents can produce.
That’s why it's critical to partner with a company that understands the complexities of recycling laws in your area. Emergent is fluent in e-Waste protocol for all major metropolitan areas we serve. Not only can we quickly liquidate surplus IT equipment and securely erase any remaining data, but also ensure all hazardous materials are disposed of correctly.
Corporate IT departments have enough problems to worry about - penalties for recycling violations shouldn’t be one of them.
