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.

#GoGreenWithGEEP 04/22/2018

 

Earth Day has become the world’s largest environmental movement! In 2018, more than 1 billion people across 192 countries will join to celebrate, educate and activate global initiatives. Unfortunately, our world faces many challenges and it is our responsibility to come together and provide solutions to protect the Earth for future generations.

GEEP believes in a sustainable future and is committed to responsibly managing the consequences of the electronic age. Our mission is to encourage reuse whenever possible. Through innovative, continuously improving processes, we securely repurpose and safely recycle used electronic devices and electrical equipment.

GEEP will be participating in several events across North and Central America, celebrating and collaborating with individuals, companies and governments. Follow our corporate social media accounts (@GEEPGlobal via Twitter, Facebook and Instagram) to learn more about these upcoming events and how you can participate!

If we do connect in-person, you may receive a GREEN ‘thank-you’ in return: a GEEP seed pen! This item is biodegradable, with the base containing pine tree seeds. Once pen has been used, dispose the refill, plant the pen and watch it grow!

Everyone must do their part, no matter how small, because together we can achieve lasting changes. Celebrate with GEEP this Earth Day, because #TogetherWeCanMakeADifference!

 

Happy Holidays & All the Best for 2018!

GEEP collaborates with Canada’s Big Five banks to host a personal e-waste recycling event in the GTA from October 17th – 19th

In support of Waste Reduction Week, GEEP is pleased to work together with the five major Canadian banks (BMO, CIBC, RBC, Scotiabank and TD) to build awareness and educate consumers and companies alike about the environmental impacts of electronic waste also referred to as e-waste.

The e-waste recycling event, which will run daily from 7:30AM to 3:30PM, October 17th to 19th, provides a great opportunity for people working in the GTA to bring in their personal electronic waste items from home for responsible disposal.  There will be three e-waste collection locations: the main lobby of Commerce Court East (21 Melinda St., Toronto), south tower lobby of Royal Bank Plaza (200 Bay St., Toronto), and the Atrium of 100 Consilium Place, Scarborough.  E-waste items such as cell phones, computer components (hard drives, monitors, scanners, keyboards, printers, etc.), and home electronics (TVs, radios, CD and DVD players, etc.) are all acceptable materials for electronic recycling.  For a full list of acceptable e-waste items for collection, please visit: Ontario Electronic Stewardship (OES) – Electronics We Accept.

Waste Reduction Week in Canada, which runs from October 16th to 22nd, is a national environmental campaign that builds awareness around responsible waste management.

GEEP Press Release: Forgotten Treasure in Recycled TV is Returned

GEEP – Responsible Electronics Recycling in Action.

Forgotten TV Treasure to be Recycled is Returned to its Rightful Owner

(GEEP Barrie Facility and Cash Found)

GEEP is pleased to announce that Barrie Police Investigative Services have returned a forgotten treasure left inside an old TV, recycled at GEEP’s Barrie facility, to its rightful owner.

As reported by Barrie Today, Barrie Police Investigative Services have spent the past month trying to trace back and return the found treasure to its owner.

On January 13th of this year, an old television was dismantled at our GEEP Barrie facility, located at 220 John Street, when an employee found a cash box inside the TV with over $100,000 cash and some personal banking records, dating back over 30 years ago, to 1985.

The GEEP employee reported and handed over the items to the General Manager and police were involved to handle the matter accordingly.

GEEP commends the honest actions of our employees and staff and are happy to hear the money has been returned to its original owner.
