Businesses across the nation, are turning in their old computers, obsolete inventory, eWaste and other products, to get paid by an Atlanta, GA based electronics recycling company.
KENNESAW, Ga., May 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Advanced Electronics Recycling Solutions (AERS) offers a computer asset recovery service that can actually help businesses to maximize the return for used computer and electronics products, while ensuring that personal and confidential data is not shared or compromised.
AERS collects, segregates and dismantles or resales used obsolete and unwanted computers and other electronics. Through the electronics recycling program, all dismantled products are processed by material content (i.e. metals, plastic, etc.), to make sure that they are processed properly for reuse to manufacture new products. The asset recovery program consists of products that are collected and available for resale from businesses. The items are sorted by the product type, model numbers and then go through a very intensive testing procedure to insure the functionality and quality of the products. They are then re-marketed and sold to re-manufacturing, repair and refurbishment companies.
An estimated 50 million tons of E-Waste is produced each year. The USA discards over 30 million computers each year and 100 million phones are disposed in Europe each year. In the United States, an estimated 70% of heavy metals in landfills comes from discarded electronics, while electronic waste represents only 2% of America's trash in the landfill. Toxic substances in electronic waste include lead, mercury and cadmium. These materials pose a health risk to humans when not properly disposed.
