After purchasing new POS equipment, many of you are left with the question…where do we dispose of all our old equipment? Many items cannot be thrown in the garbage, so how do I abide by the laws without all the hassle?
There is a simple solution. Send it to us! Retail Tech is a licensed hazardous waste handler and all equipment is transported and disposed of in accordance with EPA guidelines.
Among the PC’s, laptops, printers, and monitors Retail Tech disposed of in 2011, we are proud to say that we recycled over 500,000 pounds of electronic scrap alone! That is equal to about 7,142 lanes of IBM SurePOS 700 systems,
About this many Ford F-150 trucks…
…99 to be exact (didn’t want to make you count).
Our recycling efforts are not limited to our customer’s needs; we recycle all of Retail Tech’s material waste as well. Aside from electronic scrap, we have recycled:
96,000 lbs. of Scrap Metal
1,727 wood pallets
+ 162,080 lbs. of Cardboard Waste
A whole lotta’ recycling
There is always room for growth, and we are committed to increasing our efforts in 2012. Help us as we continue on our quest to eliminate POS scrap, in the right way.
