  • (1888PressRelease) January 12, 2011 - Coconut Creek, FL - Laws concerning electronic waste, or e-waste, have recently tightened in several states, including New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Indiana. To meet the new demand for e-waste recycling, Florida-based computer recycler, Salma Systems, recently announced that it is equipped to provide e-waste recycling services to businesses and corporations across the United States.

    While e-waste recycling laws certainly help to eliminate computer waste from landfills in the United States, too many recyclers end up shipping computers to trade-embargoed nations. Once overseas, these electronics can end up severely damaging the health of children in developing countries, who are often the ones to take apart old computers to get to the valuable-and sometimes toxic-metals inside.

    Many businesses choose the New Year as the best time to buy new IT equipment. However, along with the new e-waste laws affecting businesses and individuals across the United States, there is an increased need for quality electronics recycling services.

    "Salma Systems is proud of our ethical electronics recycling practices," said Glen Montgomery, CEO of Salma Systems. "We're committed to meeting widespread demand with 2011's new e-waste laws. Also, along with our computer recycling services, we can provide hard drive degaussing and DoD wipe services which permanently destroy all hard drive data, so our clients can be assured that their sensitive information has been completely destroyed. We also provide a certificate of destruction, including an audit referencing the serial number of each hard drive which has had the data removed from it." Mr. Montgomery encourages IT professionals to contact Salma Systems to discuss options for their used equipment.

    Salma Systems recently implemented a Facebook campaign "Keep Your Computer out of a River in China" to encourage public awareness of the problem of e-waste.

    About the company:

    Salma Systems buys, sells, and recycles used computer equipment from organizations across the United States. They also provide IT asset management services for "end of life" computer systems, ensuring that all information is completely destroyed.
