Here's What We're All About

Recycling and Disposal of Obsolete Electronics

We completely recycle all types of electronic equipment. All material is tracked, disassembled by hand, carefully separated and eventually utilized as feedstock for various raw material extraction processes (including smelting and refining) or refurbished and sold. These raw materials are in turn used to produce new metal and plastic products.

We are now offering ON-SITE HARD DRIVE DESTRUCTION service in ILLINOIS!

Does your company's security policy require that no data containing devices leave the premises?

Other companies offer on-site destruction by punching the hole in the drive or smashing it with a press. In these cases the data can still be recovered by a Forensic Data Specialist.

Do you want to be in control of your Data Containing Devices all the way to their end of life? Genesis Electronics Recycling, Inc. can provide on-site hard drives and backup tapes destruction by shredding them while you supervise the process. Only shredding of media guarantees full destruction of data and therefore it is recommended as a preferable way of Data Destruction by National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in their NIST 800-88 guidelines and it is compliant with HIPPA, DoD and FACTA requirements for destruction of media. We can even record the shredding so you can have it for your records.

Each hard drive will be scanned to capture its model and serial number and then shredded to ensure that no data can be recovered. The entire process is done at your site and a certificate will be sent to you with all information within 24 hours. Our trucks are equipped with power generators and custom made hard drive shredders.

Ecologically responsible recycling

Genesis Electronics Recycling de-manufactures electronic equipment by hand so as to not contaminate the environment by toxic materials. Electronic components that can be refurbished to extend their useful life are processed for resale.

Other recycling companies shred obsolete electronics. We do not shred your electronic equipment, with the exception of Hard Drives, which are in wholly self contained system that does not contaminate the air. We believe shredding contaminates the e-waste raw materials and the air. It is common knowledge that shredding releases potentially hazardous particles into the environment. All of our processing facilities are located in the continental US.
