Is My Data Safe?

In the case that we receive e-Waste at our facilities which contain Hard Drives or other data storing devices such as Laptops, we erase the data on them prior to recycling/reuse/resale. Hard Drives are made unrecoverable using one of the following methods: an erasing utility which exceeds the governments security requirements of DoD 5520.22-M, the most prevalent standard for cleaning a hard drive; drilling or shredding.

What Happens To The Materials?

RFBC maintains a strict no-landfill, no overseas dumping policy. All material collected will be recycled or put to reuse with component resale/refurbishment. Items that do not have refurbish/reuse/resale value will be broken down into recycling commodities (i.e. plastic, steel, copper, aluminum) and sent to down-stream smelters that have been prescreened. Non-resalable parts of the electronics we receive will be processed in an environmentally sound manner.

RFBC works with leading de-manufacturers of electronic waste (e-Waste) with a focus on the recycling/redistribution/resale/reuse of components. Since our inception in 2002, RFBC has been committed to protecting the environment through reuse and proper recycling of e-Waste.
