Asset disposition refers to the process of properly disposing of or recycling unwanted or obsolete equipment. Our team helps to streamline the asset disposition process, including pick-up and drop-off services, logistics planning, asset tracking, and data wiping. We work with individuals and large organizations to coordinate recycling plans that are environmentally-friendly and convenient for our customers.
Beyond our recycling services, we also work with individuals and businesses to maximize the value of recovered items by refurbishing them and making them operational again. Our goal is to minimize the environmental impact of electronic waste by refurbishing outdated electronics for redeployment and resale, and recycling items that cannot be salvaged.
To ensure we have a streamlined and efficient recycling process, our team utilizes a detailed asset tracking system. When we receive your item, we record the make, model, serial number, client information, and other additional information that makes tracking your asset easier. Our digital tracking system allows us to easily locate your asset at any time and confirm if it has had its data wiped, been recycled, or been refurbished for resale. We also provide our customers with a Certificate of Destruction and a complete data report explaining what was received, what services were administered, and what was ultimately recycled. For those interested in refurbishing or reselling their assets after their data has been wiped, we also help with registration and discovery to help you establish the value of your assets.
We understand that one of our customers’ top priorities is protecting the privacy of their information and data on recycled devices. With this in mind, we offer comprehensive data-wiping and hard drive destruction services for our customers. In this way, we can ensure that your devices are free of confidential personal information and company data when they are recycled. For our clients’ convenience, we also offer on-site data backup services to help you copy and store all of your important information before wiping the devices and destroying the hard drives. For added security and privacy, we can provide data wiping services at one of our secure offices or at your location. Our team will also include a Certificate of Destruction and can even provide witnessed destruction services upon request. Our goal is to ensure our clients’ privacy and information is always protected — especially when recycling or reselling their electronics. We ensure absolute confidentiality throughout the entire recycling and refurbishing processes.
Upon request, our team can provide a complete diagnostic evaluation of your individual devices. The goal of this test is to identify issues with the device, evaluate possible solutions to these issues, produce a quote for refurbishment, and possibly repair it so it can be redeployed or resold by our clients. Our diagnostic test includes a functional assessment, cosmetic grading, and market valuation. If we find the item to be too damaged or obsolete to be repaired, we will provide a detailed report and recycle the item at your request. We keep our clients updated throughout each phase of the recycling or refurbishing process, so you always have control over your asset.
If you opt to refurbish your electronic device based on our quote from the diagnostic test, we will perform a basic refurbishment to repair and upgrade the asset. Not only will this ensure your electronic device is operational, but we will maximize the value of the asset to improve the return, should you choose to resell it. Our team records a detailed log of the refurbishment tasks performed and will provide you with a copy for resale. Assets are then sold through our comprehensive network of wholesalers, retailers, and end users. If you prefer to sell your devices independently, we will securely package and ship the item to you so you can pursue other resale or charitable opportunities.
Many of our clients send their old electronics to our facilities to recycle them and are sometimes surprised to find out they are still functional and valuable. When this happens, we offer warehousing and redeployment services. We understand that most businesses simply do not have the storage capacity to warehouse their old technology, even if it has value. We will store your assets in one of our secure facilities, saving you significant warehousing costs while also reducing the footprint of your business. We will store and deploy your assets on an as-needed basis, allowing you to keep them at our facility until you need them.
At eCycle, we pride ourselves on our ability to minimize the hassle of transporting electronics for recycling. We have processing facilities all across Canada, ensuring your device travels the shortest possible distance from pickup to the recycling facility. Not only does this reduce the environmental impact of the recycling process — a goal closely linked to our company’s values — but it also makes the process faster and more efficient. For businesses looking to redeploy or resell their refurbished devices, we can perform a diagnostic test, provide you with a refurbishment quote, and ship the item back to you — minimizing the amount of time and effort your team needs to spend on recycling or refurbishing.
