Have LTO or other tape cartridge types that you need to dispose of? Instead of having them destroyed or throwing them into dumpsters, we recommend recycling them.
There are a number of reasons we suggest this, including:
1. Incineration of tape cartridges is expensive and toxic.
2. Perfectly good tape is completely wasted.
3. You miss out on cash that can be gained through tape buyback problems.
4. Throwing tape into dumpsters leads to toxic waste being poured into landfills.
5. Important data can get into the wrong hands if data isn’t completely expunged.
Simply put, there is no good reason not to recycle tape in today’s world. This is why we are constantly working to educate organizations and individuals on the process.
We offer a buyback program by which we offer top dollar for used tape cartridges. Our recycling team sees to it that all data is completely expunged and tapes are made ready for reuse. This process is safe, secure, compliant and highly auditable.
Once tapes are ready, we then make them available for other organizations and individuals to use. This helps saves them large sums of money as they years progress.
Beyond the cost-effectiveness of recycling tape cartridges, there are also huge benefits where industry regulations are concerned.
Our recycling process assures all organizations that their data will be completely expunged in a manner that satisfies all major regulatory bodies including HIPAA, Sox, Sarbanes-Oxley, etc.
And finally, it is important to consider the value of building eco-friendly policies within an organization. Unfortunately, statistics have continue to reveal that organizations within the U.S. and beyond are failing to establish recycling programs.
In fact, less than 3 percent of decommissioned tape cartridges are recycled each year! This is a sad statistic, as the majority of tapes can be reused.
