New Jersey-based electronics & computer recycling company SAMR Inc assisted schools in a widespread electronics & computer recycling project. CEO Albert Boufarah explains that their process of recycling electronics helps us move toward the goal of a more sustainable planet while safely eliminating security concerns.
LAKEWOOD, NJ / ACCESSWIRE / July 23, 2021 / SAMR Inc recently completed a project with schools and universities on electronics recycling. Many computers and tech devices were left unused after the transition of many students to online classes brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic. These electronics were rendered obsolete by an influx of newer model computers, printers & other items. CEO Albert Boufarah, along with his company, SAMR Inc, was brought in to help the educational institutes update new hardware while securing sensitive software information.
Electronics waste and data security: A double-edged sword
Electronic waste or 'e-waste' has turned into a global problem, accelerated by the increased demand from companies & individuals for the most current electronic devices. While the rapid modernization of technology has many upsides, an overwhelming negative is earlier generations of electronic devices that are challenging to dispose of. Only 12.5% of old electronics are brought to e-waste centers to be recycled, which means the rest of the percentage ends up illegally in landfills and other locations.
Data security is another adverse effect of technology modernization. Unlike other commonplace consumer goods, electronics cannot merely be discarded in household trash. According to SAMR Inc.'s CEO, Albert Boufarah, there is a specific way to destroy old and irrelevant data to protect sensitive information: this, unfortunately, is neglected when people resort to improper methods of handling their old electronics. When they are not recycled properly, some ill-intentioned people can obtain this information for the purposes of extorting money or committing various cybercrimes.
A new solution: Systematic electronics disposal
Thankfully, there is an outlet to sustainably dispose of electronic materials while keeping sensitive information secure. SAMR Inc is one of the leading companies in the field of electronics & laptop recycling. Their services include tech device drop-off points, electronic pick-ups for larger items, battery recycling, and secure destruction of personal information.
Currently, the company services a client base in 13 states.

How sustainable e-waste & desktop recycling works
Proper electronics recycling is accomplished through the use of state-of-the-art processes and equipment to crush and sort materials. These parts cannot be reassembled, which helps protect the personal data of clients & employees, all while being sorted to prevent pollution and toxic waste.
By working with SAMR Inc, clients can turn over their hard drives or electronic devices for U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) standard shredding.
