As a result of our environmental leadership, we have become the trusted industry leader and recycling partner for many of the largest, most respected corporate brands in the world. Since we are ISO 14001 and R2/RIOS Certified, customers are confident that this process is done with the highest of standards.
- Certified Destruction: AER Worldwide understands the need for secure destruction of proprietary and data bearing equipment. As one of our value added programs we offer on-site, witnessed hard drive destruction services without charging a premium for the service.
- Downstream Transparency: All of our downstream partners go through a lengthy audit and pre qualification process prior to processing even one pound of equipment. Your data and reputation are important to us, and we take their safeguarding very seriously.
- Commodity Recovery: AER Worldwide’s e-recycling services ensure that you maximize recovery value on each and every product, part and material in your end-of- life product stream. We give old equipment new life, while addressing data security and environmental concerns.
- The e-Waste Recycling Process: Through our de-manufacturing process, we separate re-sellable component parts such as hard drives, circuit motherboards and memory modules, as well as ferrous, nonferrous and precious metals and plastics. Unlike data sanitization which focuses on security and risk mitigation, our e-waste recycling objective is simple: maximize value recovery in the fastest time possible.
- Zero-landfill Policy: AER Worldwide’s Environmental Policy drives our approach to implementing best practices for our customers in support of Sustainable Computing. Guided by the basic principle of “reuse first, recycle second,” we find markets for working equipment. Products beyond their useful life or marketability are broken down to component level for reuse/recycling according to and exceeding all federal, state, local and international regulations and electronic waste (e-waste) standards. We are committed to maintaining a position on the leading edge of Green IT and Environmental Advocacy that exceeds international requirements and the standards in place by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). By holding ourselves to the highest global standards for environmental practices, we will continue to provide for a higher level of security and social responsibility for everyone associated with AER Worldwide, including the customers who have placed their faith in us to manage their IT assets and liabilities worldwide.
