It’s a common story -- years go by and inevitably you find yourself staring into a sea of used tape cartridges that will never be looked at again, and you don’t quite know what to do when them. You consider throwing them into the dumpster or hauling them off to a dump.
These two options aren't the best for a number of reasons. Of course, there’s the chance that the data you've stored over the years could be fished out of a dumpster by your competitors or a crook looking for valuable data to steal.
Secondly, dumps and landfills are already filled with massive amounts of toxic e-waste that isn't doing the earth or our future generations any favors.
And thirdly, you may be missing out on a handful of cash by not recycling your LTO-2, LTO-3, LTO-4, LTO-5, LTO-6, 3592, and other tape formats.
At Big Data Supply, we are working with organizations of all sizes and individuals to let the world know that most used tape and numerous other technologies are perfectly good and should be recycled. Unfortunately, only a very small percentage (about 3%) of tape cartridges and related technologies are recycled.
Here’s how it works:
1. Drop us an e-mail or call us and provide our recycling team a list of technologies you want to sell.
2. We’ll make you an offer.
3. You sign-off on our purchase, and we’ll arrange for shipment.
4. Once we receive your recycled goods, we’ll make sure they work and send you a check for all items in good shape.
5. All tape cartridges will be degaussed and the data completely erased. (Certificate of Data Destruction Provided Upon Request)
Once your goods are recycled/refurbished, we then make it available for our clients.
By selling used tape and other data center technologies, we then help growing and thriving organizations keep their costs down. It’s a win-win for everyone involved.
Want to sell tape or other technologies as soon as possible? Give us a call or send us an email, and we’ll get started!
Whatever you do, think twice before throwing perfectly good technologies into landfills. We can all work together to make a difference!
