Corporate eWaste Solutions (CEWS): Heading the Environmental Sustainability Game

The impact of e-waste continues to mushroom with the ever-increasing load of enterprise IT assets. While electronics recycling and proper management of outdated devices serve as a solution for the burgeoning e-waste problem, there is a catch—information leakage. Older machines at the end of their lifecycle are dumped without considering the cost of the data contained within them. Since electronic devices house huge volumes of critical enterprise data, their conversion to e-waste increases the risk of its data being compromised, creating a major liability concern for many organizations.

Serving as an R2v3-certified and California-approved electronic asset recycling and recovering specialist since 2016, Corporate eWaste Solutions (CEWS) excels at providing innovative ewaste recycling solutions while eliminating the risk of information leakage.

CEWS’ ITAD services are instrumental in helping businesses maximize ROI on end-of-life IT assets and unwanted decommissioned electronic devices. As a one-stop IT asset recovery solution provider, it offers end-to-end chain of command—from secure pickup logistics, processing and dismantling of materials, to transparent reporting of material destruction.
Aspiring to serve as its customers’ most trusted partner, CEWS adopts a highly collaborative approach for client onboarding and service delivery. A typical client engagement at CEWS begins with its team identifying their ITAD requirements, bottlenecks in equipment transfer, and the ways to address their needs through a site survey. Based on this information, CEWS sends them a proposal and schedules a convenient date to perform equipment decommissioning, packaging, or pickup according to their needs.

Once it reaches the warehouse, team CEWS weighs, labels, and sorts each device in order to track it throughout the process. Data bearing assets are then carefully wiped and destroyed to prevent information leakage by complying with all state and federal standards for data security, information privacy, and environmental protection. This additional step to protect clients’ critical data gives CEWS a competitive advantage in the ITAD space.

CEWS uses its in-house systems and technologies to assess the value of clients’ equipments— identifying the scope for re-marketability. The company then provides a detailed report that gives a complete picture of their assets’ value and allows them to decide how they want to move forward.

Being customer-centric in operations, CEWS either returns the equipment— so that clients can re-market or reuse it—or resells it via its extensive network of partners. Here, the company adopts a unique “shared revenue” model that is ideal in the industry as it creates value add for both parties.

In instances where clients’ equipments are not re-marketable, CEWS harvests reusable parts and puts the device through the end-of-life process. It then gets broken down to the lowest commodity, which is sent to recycle centers—be it metal or plastic. The company ensures responsible, compliant, and safe recycling operations by joining hands with certified and environmentally- committed partners. All these manifest CEWS’ ability and willingness to go above and beyond to meet clients’ expectations not only in service integrity and quality but also in organizational and environmental safety.

As a socially responsible company at its heart, CEWS has always been at the forefront in helping the community with its social impact program—Tech for Good. Developed by its Northern California team, the program focuses on providing refurbished laptops to qualified low-income families in local communities for educational purposes. The company has established partnerships with non-profits and community organizations to provide logistics and workforce for certified electronic refurbishing of these donated laptops.

Moving ahead, CEWS continues its mission of helping organizations cultivate practices to reduce e-wastes and repurpose valuable materials to achieve greater environmental sustainability. With its new plastic recycling plant shortly opening in Mexico, the company aims to enhance its capabilities in recycling while always looking forward for ways to reduce the impacts of e-wastes on our Mother Earth.
