Omaha, NE, June 14, 2011- Just about everyone has an old computer, cell phone, TV or computer peripheral (scanners, printers etc.) sitting around their home these days that they want to get rid of. The problem is that most people don’t know where or how to properly dispose of old electronics in a safe and responsible manner.
While recycling venues seem to be a dime a dozen, most people aren’t reading the fine print when it comes to recycling their end of life computers and items that store personal information. Sure you see the drop boxes at major retailers and many people advertise that they will recycle your items for “free” but what does the cost end up being for you as the consumer? With identity theft and fraud on the rise, can you risk disposing of your old electronics without a guarantee that your personal data will be removed or better yet, destroyed?
At DataShield our motto is, “Leave Nothing To Chance.” We are committed to making sure the personal and proprietary information that may be stored on the computers and other electronics we recycle, is destroyed.
To show our commitment, we are offering a FREE Hard Drive Destruction through the end of July in conjunction with the story airing on KETV this evening at 5pm. Simply download or mention the certificate when you come in to recycle your electronics with our residential division, Recycling Central.
At only $0.27 per pound, the cost is minimal to you but ensures that not only is your data removed, your items are recycled responsibly in an EPA approved facility according to local and state guidelines. As your certified destruction specialist, you can feel a peace of mind knowing your electronics are securely destroyed with DataShield.
Omaha Metro Area residents can drop off their used electronics Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. at 1528 N. 16th St, Omaha, NE. Call us today with any questions you may have regarding information disposal.
