Latham hosts another successful Tech Recycling Event

We’re proud to continue Latham Centers’ annual tradition of GOING GREEN with our “tech junk”!  For the fourth year, we held an event to responsibly recycle our organization’s obsolete electronics and components. We invited employees to bring their electronics recyclables from home, too. The September Technology Recycling Event produced a few giant boxes of electronics weighing more than 1,000 pounds. The annual recycling day is part of Latham’s commitment to making an impact on our environment.*

We are so grateful to our IT and Maintenance teams for helping with this effort! Thanks also to all who brought their ‘electronics junk’ from home to be taken out of the solid waste stream and recycled by certified electronics recycler PC Survivors of Hanover. PC Survivors urges everyone to responsibly recycle all electronics at end-of-life with an R2v3/RIOS certified company.  R2v3/RIOS certification is solely for electronics recyclers to demonstrate to customers that electronics equipment is being recycled with the highest standards for environmental protection, worker health and safety, data privacy, and facility security. A facility that has invested R2v3/RIOS certification has upgraded to the highest, most responsible standards in recycling.”  ~ PC Survivors


* Electronics recycling helps to protect the environment AND reduces data risks. Electronics can contain substances that contaminate the air, soil, and water if sent to a landfill – and electronic computing devices can contain sensitive data. Latham Centers works with PC Survivors for this annual ‘green’ initiative. PCS responsibly recycles surplus, scrap, and obsolete electronics and components, and they wipe all hard drive data in accordance with the National Industrial Security Program Operating Manual (NISPOM), National Institute of Standards and Technologies (NIST SP 800-88 Revision 1), Health Insurance Portability Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA Public Law 104-191), and the National Security Agency (NSA/CSS Specification 04-02 & 02).  Please reach out to PC Survivors if you’d like more information on their services.
