New advancements in technology can sometimes bring new challenges when it comes to properly disposing of electronics at the end of their lifetimes. Not only do these items contain materials that can be reused, but they also could potentially contain lead, copper and other heavy metals that could be toxic to the environment. Finding ways to make this type of trash collection easy and safe is more of a priority in today’s world than it has ever been.
Luckily, Securr has unveiled a new line of trash cans that specifically targets this growing need in trash collection. Steve Thompson, Director of Marketing and Sales at Securr, recently told us more about their valuable new line of trash receptacles specifically designed to handle e-waste.
Q: Steve, I understand E-waste Collection Bins are a new product that Securr is offering. What exactly is e-waste?
A: E-waste (short for electronic waste) recycling covers a huge variety of items including, but not limited to, cell phones, laptops, monitors, printers and such. These items should not be thrown away in the trash. E-waste contains valuable materials that should be recycled but it also contains toxins that should be handled in a special manner.
Q: Knowing that our society is becoming more and more conscious about properly disposing of or recycling waste, what kinds of companies or organizations might be interested in using the E-waste Collection Bins?
A: Companies that specialize in e-waste recycling, and large electronics retailers that can get the collected items into a proper recycling stream are both companies that could really benefit from collection bins that are specifically manufactured to handle e-waste.
Q: How do you think schools could use the E-waste Collection Bins to teach students about the importance of properly disposing electronic devices?
A: Students should be taught about what E-waste is – the benefits of recycling it and the negative impacts if you don’t. E-waste recyclers should be labeled with exactly what items are acceptable to recycle.
Q: E-waste can include products that are potentially toxic for the environment. How are the Securr E-waste Collection Bins designed to ensure that hazardous materials are properly contained?
A: Once deposited, items are inaccessible except by the recycling company.
Q: How can organizations get in touch with Securr to discuss how E-waste Collection Bins could suit their needs?
A: Just go to www.trash-cans.com and all our contact information is available right there. We’d be happy to discuss E-waste with you or put you in touch with someone that understands the many aspects of it.
