Electronic Waste Recycling

According to the EPA, electronic waste (e-waste) is the source of up to 70 percent of the heavy metal in America’s landfills. The environmental issue is only part of the problem. Electronic media poses a real security risk due to the presence of important proprietary data.

In response to a growing need for sustainable solutions, Covanta established a business line called ECOvanta, which consists of specialists dedicated to the safe, secure recycling of e-waste. ECOvanta has obtained e-Stewards, Responsible Recycling (R2), OHSAS 18001:2007 and ISO 14001:2004 certifications after a comprehensive accredited third-party auditing process.

Our services keep pollutants out of landfills and data out of the hands of those who might exploit it. We recycle more than 99 percent of the e-waste we receive and we audit all of our downstream recycling partners to make sure they follow the same standards we do. Our expertise in matters related to security and risk management has been demonstrated time and again.

Our Electronic Waste Recycling can eliminate the risk of exposing confidential data by:
Erasing information from hard drives to U.S. Department of Defense standards
Physically shredding hard drives and other electronic media
Providing special security and video surveillance for the destruction of highly sensitive information
Offering certificated proof of destruction

The growing demand for proper recycling of electronic waste, or “e‐waste”, led LCSWMA to pursue a vendor partnership to ensure these materials are recycled and/or properly disposed of in a way that protects the environment.
