GEEP Durham Facility Featured in CBS 17 ‘Secure Your ID’ Article

On April 20th 2018, Consumer Investigator, Steve Sbraccia from CBS 17, visited GEEP USA Inc.’s processing facility in Durham, NC.

During his site visit, Steve learned from GEEP’s Brooks Callisher, the sustainable methods employed by GEEP to securely remove sensitive data from electronic devices and electrical equipment. To extend the life of useful items that may become re-purposed, all data is erased to an unrecoverable state through Blancco, the world’s leading provider of data erasure software. While end-of-life products are processed through state-of-the-art proprietary machinery that breaks them down to their base commodities, which can in turn be refined into new products.

The month of April is always an extremely important time at GEEP! Although April 22nd marks the official date of ‘Earth Day’, GEEP participates in several events throughout the month across North and Central America. Our corporate social media accounts (@GEEPGlobal via Twitter, Facebook and Instagram) give insight to our collaborative involvement with individuals, companies and governments, one of those being the FREE open-to-the-public ‘Secure Your ID Day’ Electronics Recycling & Document Shredding Event in Raleigh, NC. Local partners BBB Serving Eastern NC, Coastal Credit Union, Shred-It and GEEP hosted the event on April 21, 2018 as part of a bulk shredding event in Raleigh.
