Secure, Green Computer Disposal for Business, Government and Not-for-Profit Organizations.
Protect Yourself and the Environment
We all know recycling computers is critical to protecting the environment, and keeping tons of waste and toxic chemicals out of our landfills. The province of BC is so concerned about this threat that is has created an Electronic Stewardship Association, a free recycling program and has even implemented new laws that make it illegal to dispose of computer equipment in the garbage. This program is a huge step forward in protecting our environment, but it fails to reuse older equipment, and protect the organizations who send their equipment for recycling.
We have put together a program specifically for businesses and not-for-profits that:
How it works
Once your computer equipment arrives at NewGen it is stripped of all media which may contain data including hard drives, disks, and even printer components. This media is then placed into securely locked bins which are sent out for secure shredding and incineration. Your data is protected during transfer in the secure bins. The bulk of the equipment we receive is then sorted by one of a couple of local not-for-profit organizations, such as the Electronics Recycling Association, who then refurbish the equipment, and donate it to schools, charities and people in need. All remaining equipment is disposed using environmentally friendly processes overseen by the Electronic Stewardship Association of British Columbia through BC's Return-it Electronics Recycling program.
The cost for secure green disposal is $50 per device (desktop, notebook, server, monitor, firewall etc). Special rates are negotiated for more than 100 devices.
Please note: When recycling a PC, the fee also includes the disposal of 1 keyboard and 1 mouse.

Optional Redundant Data Destruction
If you're concerned that shredding and incineration of your hard drives is not adequate, NewGen also provides Redundant Data Destruction which performs a multipass format (to NSA standards) on a hard drive before the drive is shredded and incinerated. The cost for this is an addition $50 per hard drive in addition to the per device cost.
