Interco Specializes in Recycling E-Waste

Interco specializes in recycling e-waste including computers, printers, networking equipment, televisions, stereos, and more. It’s extremely important to choose a trusted recycler when disposing of many of these items. Computers and printers contain a memory with documents and other information. This information must be handled securely to prevent data leaks. Without proper disposal by trained staff, a recycler could be held liable for leaked information. Interco assures destruction of parts, asset tagging, and serialized inventory reporting. With these processes, Interco guarantees a secure recycling experience.

Interco has also acquired several certificates that demonstrate a commitment to secure and safe waste management.

  • ISO 14001 – Environmental Management Systems
  • ISO 9001 – Quality Management Systems
  • R2v3 – Responsible Recycling Standards
  • ISO 45001 – Occupational Health and Safety Assessment Series Management Systems

Rely on Interco to Safely Recycle Waste

Safe waste management requires a company that holds high recycling standards. There are many other potential hazards besides data leaks. The R2v3 certification assures safe recycling solutions when it comes to e-scrap. ISO certifications ensure that Interco is committed to safely processing all items. Other hazards include the potential to mishandle toxic metals. Solar panels, e-scrap, computers, and batteries all contain heavy metals that can cause major environmental damage if disposed of improperly. Globally, about 80% of all electronics are not recycled. Instead, these items end up in landfills. Once here, the precious metals pose environmental and health risks. They are also unrecoverable, creating a need to further mine for ore.

Interco also ensures the safety of all their employees. Other electronic waste hubs lack infrastructure to safely manage toxic objects. However, Interco prioritizes the health and safety of employees. For example, battery recycling can be dangerous if done improperly. However, Interco has a state-of-the-art battery processing plant with 4 patents pending.
