The Annual Event Helps Businesses Successfully and Ethically Dispose of Retired or Unnecessary IT Assets
BROOKLYN, N.Y.–Liquid Technology, an industry-leading IT asset disposition service provider, announces that they will once again be hosting their annual Earth Day event alongside Marcus Partners, a real estate and commercial property firm. Occurring on April 18 in Norwalk, CT, the event offers tenants of the Merritt 7 office park the opportunity to easily and responsibly dispose of their lingering IT assets.
As environmental concerns are on the rise, e-waste disposal has become one of the most critical considerations for the technology industry. In a recent whitepaper, Liquid Technology reports that Americans alone throw away 9.4 million tons of electronics every year. The dangerous metals and toxic chemicals contained in this e-waste are often unsafely dumped into landfills locally or overseas, seeping into groundwater and affecting local communities and ecosystems. By taking part in Liquid Technology’s Earth Day event, businesses located in the Merritt office park avoid contributing to these damaging practices, establish compliance with increasingly strict state, local, and federal regulations, and receive critical return on investment (ROI). In 2018, this event enabled the safe disposal of more than 750 IT assets and equipment, including PCs, laptops, phones, servers, and more.
As a leading e-waste recycling service provider and ITAD specialist, this annual event underscores Liquid Technology’s enduring commitment to promoting safe and beneficial ITAD processes for businesses across a range of industry verticals. From liquidation to data erasure and strategic asset resale, all of Liquid Technology’s services are e-Stewards Certified, R2 Certified, and ISO 14001 Certified, ensuring all needs and regulations are met thoroughly, easily, and with transparency. To help businesses learn more about achieving ITAD best practices, the company has also created several whitepapers outlining how to create a retirement plan, certifications and more.
“Finding a reputable ITAD professional that is eco-friendly and socially conscious can be tough, and some businesses may not even know where to start,” notes Richard Greene, Managing Partner at Liquid Technology. “But once a properly certified and compliant partner is found, every business can be a champion of environmentally ethical practices during the final and most critical stage of their equipment’s life cycle.”
