Modern waste requires modern disposal to keep both you and the environment safe

As technology’s role continues to grow in our day-to-day lives, the waste it produces becomes an ever-larger problem requiring a modern disposal option. Rather than sending electronic waste (e-waste) for disposal, we'll recycle its resources to prevent its toxic materials from damaging the environment or its sensitive information from being recovered and harming you or your business.

Every year, Covanta Environmental Solutions, through its ECOvanta business line, works with businesses and communities to manage more than 15 million pounds of electronic waste destined for landfills and instead put their resources to good use. Through our services we: 

  • Recycle or reuse approximately 95 percent of electronic waste materials, including plastics and metals 
  • Manage and securely destroy sensitive and high-risk materials through mechanical shredding that renders them completely unrecoverable
  • Prevent toxic components such as mercury, lead, cadmium, barium and lithium from entering the environment through landfills where they can harm human and animal health
