When replacing computer equipment, what do you do with the old stuff?
BSC will take care of this for you and ensure the equipment ends up at a proper recycling facility. For desktops, notebooks, and servers, we perform an electronic erase of all hard drives before disposal to protect your corporate data from being exposed.
Being in the business of selling computer equipment means we generate a fair amount of cardboard waste. Rest assured that all that cardboard is going to a recycling facility and not into landfill.
At each of our employee’s desks, next to all printers, and in our staff kitchen, are recycle bins for paper and food containers to ensure that as little as possible goes to our local landfill.
Used batteries are collected at a central location in our office and taken periodically to a recycling facility.
At BSC we do what we can to minimize the impact of our business activity on the natural environment and hope that you do the same. We only have one planet!
