eLoop Provides Safe and Secure Data Destruction and Zero Landfill Recycling
MCMURRAY, Pa., Dec. 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Check any list of top holiday gifts for 2013, and electronic purchases will rank high. eLoop, llc, a Pittsburgh-based electronics and technology recycler, is advocating for appropriate recycling of the old devices that consumers will toss aside this year. Safe disposal of old electronics is not only the environmentally conscientious thing to do, it's critical with items containing data of any kind. eLoop, llc, with more than 30 e-waste collection sites across Pennsylvania, is certified by numerous accrediting bodies for safe data destruction and environmental sustainability.
"If you ask cell phone owners how many phones they have in drawers throughout their home, almost everyone would have at least one or two," says Ned Eldridge, president, eLoop, llc. "Keeping cell phones, laptops, tablets and other electronic devices out of landfills is important. But, more important is the safe disposal of these devices to avoid identify theft. Devices that contain personal data must be brought to a certified electronics recycler who provides a guarantee of safe data destruction. That's what we do at eLoop."
The Environmental Protection Agency estimates that only 10% of cell phones are being recycled appropriately, and only 25% of all e-waste is being recycled at all. The amount of e-waste ending up in landfills is a growing. Many electronic devices contain harmful chemicals that enter the Earth's soil – lead, mercury, cadmium and dioxins among them.
"At eLoop, we are completely transparent about our recycling efforts," says Eldridge. "We believe in zero landfill, zero exportation and zero prison labor."
eLoop's eCycle Centers and partners across Pennsylvania are ready to meet the demand for electronics disposal and safe and secure data destruction during the post- 2013 holiday season.
