TBS Industries is an industry leader in computer recycling services. We provide a comprehensive suite of services designed to fulfill the needs of our clients, regardless of the scale of their business. Computer recycling is a very broad term that describes a collection of related services provided by TBS. Our services begin with the collection of materials, either by pickup, eWaste box, or customer delivery. We immediately inventory the incoming materials, separating scrap from working or salvageable units, which are then moved into our processing stream.
Scrap computers are completely dismantled in our de-manufacturing process, which starts out by salvaging the useable components, and then separating the remainder into commodity streams, such as scrap steel, plastic, copper wire, etc. The separated material is then further refined to supply the needs of industry for new manufacturing. Working units are remarketed through a variety of channels, assuring the maximum return possible for our clients.
During the process of computer recycling, many computers will be processed which still include sensitive data on their hard disk drives. Based on our contracts, TBS will crush, shred, or fully data-wipe the hard drives, to the standards used by the US Department of Defense. This process includes a full “7-times” data wipe and overwrite, eliminating the possibility of data recovery.
TBS will issue a Certificate of Destruction for any equipment that is crushed or shredded, or a Certificate of Disposal for equipment that is slated for remarketing. This allows our clients to demonstrate a complete change of ownership, and will provide them with all the legal assurances that they have transferred title to the equipment. This certificate will help prevent future liabilities on equipment that is handled through TBS Industries.
TBS also provides an outlet for companies that are generators of scrap metals. Due to our vertically situated company, we are able to offer the highest prices in the industry on all classifications of scrap material. TBS will also provide third-party representation for companies that prefer to have their material shredded or refined, or we will purchase bulk material outright if you would prefer.
Please contact us for your computer recycling needs, TBS will provide a custom plan for your company.
