DAVENPORT–Shopping for a laptop? Now you can purchase gently used, refurbished laptops and flat-screen computer monitors online from Waste Commission of Scott County's Electronic Demanufacturing Facility, through its new Electronics Reuse Program.  

"We're proud of our new Reuse Program. It's another step in the right direction for the environment and for our community," said Kathy Morris, Director of the Commission.  

Reuse saves natural resources, extends the life of discarded electronics, and retains their value close to home.  

The Electronic Demanufacturing Facility launched its Reuse Program in January 2015 to comply with the R2:2013 (Responsible Recycling) standard for electronics recyclers. Rather than demanufacture and recycle electronics with additional useful life, the Facility now tests some items for key functions and refurbishes them for resale.  

To view or purchase electronics, visit the eBay store: http://stores.ebay.com/wastecomrecycling/. For safety reasons, all transactions occur online, and all purchased items are shipped to the buyer at no extra charge. No shopping or viewing of items for sale may take place at the Electronic Demanufacturing Facility.

 

Through the Reuse Program, the Facility continues to focus on data security as the highest priority. All data received is securely managed and destroyed. For hard drives that will be reused, technicians use state-of-the-art hardware and software to destroy all data found on the drive. The success of this process is then validated through a second, independent review. Finally, the data-destruction process is audited on a regular basis by a third party.

 

The Electronic Demanufacturing Facility holds R2:2013, ISO 14001:2004, and OHSAS 18001:2007 certifications and is a Microsoft Registered Refurbisher.

 

The Facility is located at 1048 East 59th St., Davenport. Hours are 7:30 a.m.-4 p.m. weekdays. No appointment is necessary to drop off electronics, and there is no charge for residents of Scott and Rock Island counties.

 

For more information, please visit http://www.wastecom.com or call (563) 381-1300.
