Government trash and waste services make things very convenient for consumers and up until recently, you could put just about anything on the street and the city would pick it up and dispose of it for you. However, several years ago, the state of South Carolina began enforcing their new legislation that prohibits the disposal of specific electronics in solid waste landfills.
This includes computer hardware and computer related items, stereos, televisions, printers, copiers, faxes, and just about any other harware related to electronics. According to The Department of Health and Environmental Control, "residents may not knowingly place or discard a computer, computer monitor, printer (or) television in any waste stream that is to be disposed of in a solid waste landfill".
There are few public options for e-waste disposal that allow for the free disposal of computer and electronic equipment; they are limited in number and may not be convenient for consumers. Futhermore, many are limited to consumers only and will not allow large volumes that may be brought by businesses.
Seras is constantly replacing hardware components for customers, and fortunately we have developed a great relationship with Shred360 to handle all of our e-waste disposal services. Due to the high volume of recycling, we are able to provide both businesses and consumers the lowest possible pricing available with pickup and delivery services included. Additionally, our customers recycle with Seras having full confidence in the security practices we employ to ensure that confidential data is permanently destroyed during the recycling process. Hard drives, SIM cards, cassette tapes, flash drives, and other items that may hold sensitive information are destroyed and recycled.
