ATLANTA, GA, April 21, 2023 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Unistar Technologies, a national leader in the ITAD industry, also plays a substantial role in the technology-based recycling industry as well. With some rather large projects in the first quarter of 2023, along with the continued growth of the company, Unistar has made a noticeable impact in helping to keep technology out of our nation's landfills.
In the first 3 months of 2023 the company has recycled over 150,000 pounds of e-waste using their R2V3 downflow partners based in Atlanta, Georgia. The service provided to their clients enables the company to recycle all types of electronic waste, from computers, servers, networking, telecom, laptops, as well as cell phones and tablets. Unistar's General Manager, Jason Arem stated, "It's a service that we feel environmentally conscious providers should offer to their clients in this industry, and we are proud to say that we are doing our part in the ITAD sector."
The R2V3 protocol, which establishes guidelines and adherence for the safe collection, disassembly, and segregation of e-waste for reuse or recycling is the current industry standard. The program is part of Unistar's commitment to reduce the environmental impact of electronic waste by promoting responsible reuse and recycling practices of hardware that would otherwise end up in landfills across the country. According to President and Owner Doug LaPonzina, "The first and most obvious benefit of the R2V3 process that 99.9% of businesses look to achieve is that of maintaining a green footprint by keeping old technology out of landfills. With the resale of viable hardware and "upcycling" of older technology throughout the scope of businesses, a large percentage of hardware gets a second life."
The company's ITAD (Information Technology Asset Disposition) program ensures that all the e-waste is recycled responsibly while simultaneously Unistar is able to purchase sellable hardware from clients and give a substantial return on investment. This can help offset new purchases or projects that would have otherwise have been sidelined or never come to fruition due to lack of funding.
Additionally, being able to repurpose technology helps redistribute viable hardware to those smaller businesses or individuals who may not be able to afford the latest and most expensive tech out there. Unistar Technologies also provides data security services, the NIST 800-88 protocol, to ensure that sensitive information is securely destroyed during the recycling process and can provide a certificate of data eradication by hard drive serial number and machine type to ensure the security of their clients' sensitive data.
