Our partnership with you begins with a conversation about your needs and a thorough assessment of your IT assets. Then we determine how best to recover value from your old electronic equipment through responsible methods of reuse and recycling. Resale offers the best potential for value recovery, but the fast pace of innovations in technology and short product lifecycles can limit equipment’s potential for reuse. From there, the best option may be to recycle the items in an environmentally friendly manner.

Whichever solution offers the best return to you is always our priority for your assets, and we handle each asset with the aim to preserve all residual value.

Here are some of the services that we perform to enhance value recovery:

  • Onsite audit, data destruction, and packing
  • Reverse logistics nationwide with our dedicated fleet
  • Customer portal with electronic notifications and reporting
  • Audit, de-identify, and data destruction (wipe, degauss, or shred)
  • Recycling with commodity recovery, product destruction, and de-manufacturing
  • Reporting with online portal, asset audit, certificates for data destruction and recycling, and carbon footprint reporting

Knowing when it’s most profitable to remarket is essential. For desktops, laptops, and other devices, it’s best to refresh every three to four years. Holding on to aging equipment affects their total cost of ownership with maintenance costs and disruption of work. In addition, phasing out old electronics in favor of new ones helps to keep your business current.

Our remarketing process includes:

  • Expertise and nationwide resources to help recover invested capital from old assets through the resale market
  • 90-day guaranteed sale—or we buy it based on Fair Market Value (FMV)
  • Comprehensive and secure processes, protecting businesses from liability

For those assets that cannot be remarketed, our IT Asset Disposition (ITAD) includes recovery and recycling options to help get every last bit of value from your devices and other assets.

A United Nations report found that used electronics are a 40- to 50-times richer source of precious metals than newly mined ore. When devices and components can no longer be reused, the valuable materials contained in end-of-life electronics can be recovered. “Urban mining” of materials from used electronics preserves limited supplies of natural resources and reduces the environmental impact of mining raw materials. The environmental benefits are significant.

Our recovery process includes:

  • Robust de-manufacturing process
  • Disassembly of equipment for commodity-grade materials
  • Resources for resale and additional value-recovery options

There’s much more to recycling office electronics than just environmental impact. When conducted properly, it’s also an important security measure, protecting businesses, employees, and customers from dispersing sensitive and proprietary information. At ARCOA, we audit retired, obsolete, and rundown IT assets, putting them through strict data destruction processes that are e-Stewards® / NAID AAA certified for complete data elimination. Once data is confirmed destroyed, our team disassembles each asset at our in-house facility. The recovered commodities are then sent to annually audited third-party recycling consumers for processing into new materials.

Our recycling process includes:

  • e-Stewards® / NAID AAA certified data destruction processes that meet or exceed environmental requirements
  • Environmental data reports detailing the disposition of assets
  • Audited downstream vendors

Your data security is our #1 priority. We practice the most stringent data sanitation processes and treat all equipment we service with the utmost sensitivity for data privacy—protecting your business from risk of liability. Whether your old IT assets are being remarketed or recycled, we guarantee 100% data destruction.
