GEEP is Proud to Proclaim #WasteReductionWeek in Canada

How do we proclaim WRW?

GEEP believes in a sustainable future and is proud to support #WasteReductionWeek in Canada. We are committed to effectively and responsibly managing one of the fastest growing waste streams: e-waste. As a leader in managing the complete lifecycle of IT assets, we provide individuals, companies and municipalities with the means for safe and complaint reuse and recycling of their electronic waste; just search the hashtag #GoGreenWithGEEP. We strive to achieve a zero-landfill objective by extending the useful life of electronic devices; through absolute data erasure they can be refurbished and repurposed without any security risks. If this is not possible, our end of life services provide maximum recovery of natural resources through compliant and environmentally friendly operational practices. GEEP annually processes 130+ million lbs. of e-waste and securely remarkets for reuse 500k electronic products.

We are proud to share our internal employee initiatives as well, which include: outfitting our offices and employees with reused electronic devices, encouraging e-communication (to avoid paper waste), reusing packaging materials, encouraging the use of reusable cups/mugs and providing easy to access recycling bins in our communal kitchen areas within all GEEP sites.

To learn more about this amazing program and how you can get involved, visit the Waste Reduction Week in Canada website.

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.
