The UPCYCLE Process
We are dedicated to providing our clients with a full service experience that combines proper recycling practices with unmatched customer service and precise attention to detail.
The UPCYCLE Process is a cost effective opportunity to dispose of your end of life IT, telecom, and electronic equipment. What follows is an example of how an IT asset removal project would work, with obvious room for alterations and modifications based on client needs as we pride ourselves on being flexible and amenable.
YOU POINT, WE PICK UP
Upcycle USA drivers are experts at centralizing and categorizing your inventory. Before removal, we create an inventory document so you are 100% aware of what is being collected. Our goal is to provide complete transparency, while making this labor intensive process effortless. We accept anything with a plug in any condition and are well versed at blending into a corporate or academic setting.
WE DO ALL OF THE HEAVY LIFTING
Our in-house logistics team and drivers are trained, vetted, and certified by Upcycle USA and will safely pack and load all of your on-site assets from your location. After your equipment is loaded into an Upcycle USA truck, we will safely transport your equipment, FREE of CHARGE, to one of our facilities certified for inspection and processing.
SAFE & SECURE DATA DESTRUCTION
From the time we arrive on-site for pickup, only full vetted, certified, and trained Upcycle USA employees will handle your hardware. This strict chain of custody provides total security, transparency, and peace of mind. Once your equipment is delivered to one of our secure facilities by an Upcycle USA driver, our certified technicians will clean any and all equipment with sensitive data. Each hard drive is cleaned with our DOD 26 wipe system. If shredding is preferred, we shred and destroy all hard drives and then generate a certification of destruction within 24 hours!
REPORTING OF ALL IT ASSETS
Every UPCYCLE pickup includes a Bill of Lading (BOL) that is created on-site and delivered by your driver at the time of pickup. This includes a general inventory report with a piece count of every item that is leaving your facility and unique ID number specific to your pickup. If a more detailed report is needed, you can work with your Upcycle USA Service Specialist to determine what is needed, and we will provide a custom reporting solution that addresses your specific requirements.
CERTIFIED & SUSTAINABLE PRACTICES
Upcycle USA is committed to sustainability and guarantee your equipment will not end up in a landfill. Every asset handled by Upcycle USA receives a certificate of proper handling and recycling becuase it is our moral and social responsibility to provide top of the line recycling services to all of our partners. We maintain our own certifications to ensure total compliance and accountability in the processing of electronic waste and only work with verified and compliant down-stream, R2 certified vendors, who are regularly vetted and inspected by Upcycle USA.
PAY IT FORWARD
A portion of any proceeds as well as reusable equipment is donated to various educational programs. At UPCYCLE, our hope and goal is that retired equipment may help underprivileged children to learn valuable technological skills that may one day translate into a fulfilling career and better life.
