Top five eWaste/ITAD trends of 2019

As both protectors and purveyors of electronics recycling, remarketing and reuse, Desktop Disposal is dedicated to sharing actionable information and strategies for your eWaste/ITAD programs, starting with predictions of this year's top trends. 1. Shortened IT Lifespans. While many seek to elongate their IT asset lifecycle, the average lifespan of a PC is three years, with batteries fading as early as 18 months after purchase. More prominently, accelerated consumer expectations are bleeding into the workplace, with employees demanding technology and functionality on par with their personal life. Those trends, combined with the permeation of technology into essentially every device, are calling upon organizations to put a robust eWaste strategy in place. 2. Total control logistics. Having clear line of site into your eWaste supply chain is becoming a competitive and regulatory differentiator. In 2019, businesses, governments and schools will consolidate electronics disposition from multiple vendors to one, simplifying compliance and reporting while reducing costs and providing clearer visibility. When seeking vendors in this space, look for partners like Desktop Disposal who offer centralized planning, billing and reporting, while maintaining local, on-site asset pick-up and service across multiple locations. 3. Security/Data Sanitation. Increased IT security threats - coupled with digital privacy laws such as GDPR and California's 2020 Consumer Privacy Act - are just as critical when your IT assets are retired. This seemingly obvious expectation should not be taken for granted, as many eWaste vendors claim to be compliant without having the proper certifications. Ensure that data and software are safely removed from all electronic media, and that corporate identifiers and asset tags are physically removed. Hard drive erasure procedures should adhere to NIST 800-88 standards, and inoperable hard drives shredded so that all data and software are unrecoverable. 4. Regulations, reporting and reputation. When it comes to eWaste reporting, what started as a regulatory requirement is quickly becoming reputational table stakes. National and local governments are requiring it, with stricter guidelines expected in the near term. In addition, customers and suppliers are actively seeking partners who are environmentally responsible and reputationally sound. Just last month, the state of California announced a $7.4 million settlement with Target for breaking state e-waste recycling laws between 2012 and 2016. Beyond formal citations, your eWaste strategy will increasingly influence your customer'next purchasing decision, so plan accordingly. 5. Zero-landfill commitments. Increasingly, organizations are playing their part in cleaning up our environmental hotbed through zero-landfill commitments, whether it be through wholesale waste deferral or focused efforts on zero hazardous waste, zero toxins or zero emissions. While making commitments and updating internal processes is the first step, ensure that your waste management vendors follow suit. Confirm that they (and their partners downstream) adhere to a similar zero-landfill policy to ensure your commitment doesn'fall through the cracks.Desktop Disposal is an electronics recycling company that provides affordable alternatives to landfill disposal, worry-free data security, and reliable customer service.
