For the disposal and recycling of surplus/end-of-life IT equipment
The NCE service for the disposal and recycling of surplus and end-of-life IT equipment is flexible and can be adapted to meet the unique requirements of our customers. Whatever the solution, the emphasis is always on the protection of the equipment, security of any residual data, and the integrity of the environment.
NCE’s service for the disposal of surplus and End-of-life IT equipment meets all of the hazardous waste regulations requirements of the Resource Conservation & Recovery Act of 1976, NEPA (1970), SB 20, EWRA (2003), California Prop. 65 (1986), Safe Drinking Water Act (1974, amended in 1996), and exceeds targets imposed by the EU Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive of 2007.
In February 2003, the European Union issued Directive 2002/95/EC on the restriction of the use of certain Hazardous Substances in electrical and electronic equipment (RoHS). This RoHS directive requires producers of electrical and electronic equipment to restrict the use of 6 environmentally-sensitive substances : lead, mercury, cadmium, hexavalent chromium and the use of PBB and PBDE flame retardants, in electrical and electronic products, sold in the European Union beginning July 1, 2006. Also any EEE placed on the market as of July 1st 2008 may not contain DecaBDE.
NCE has established a process for maintaining the integrity of RoHS compliant units received for repair. We communicate our requirements to our suppliers and advise them of our expectations for their assistance in ensuring that we maintain compliance with the RoHS directive. Our computer tracking system has the capability of providing the necessary recording systems to track internal recovery statistics as required by the WEEE directive.
