Our Methods

C&I Electronics Maintains Careful and Strict Methods by which We Operate.

Material Receipt

As required by the State of Indiana, equipment is checked in and weighed at our facility according to customer. Each lot of equipment submitted is separately tracked through our computer system, giving us the ability to generate a summary of the items received for our customer’s records. By request, we can also submit a more detailed spreadsheet with corresponding equipment asset and serial numbers. We first consider refurbishment and reuse opportunities for whole units, then parts. Data containing devices such as hard drives, data tapes, and CD-ROM disks are sanitized or destroyed according to our customers’ requirements. Items that have little or no value are either dismantled and separated into categories such as plastic, metal, and electronic boards, or sent as whole units to our recycling partners who possess the machinery and environmental controls needed to properly recycle these complex materials.

Downstream

Outgoing weight is recorded regardless of whether it is a PC sold to a local customer or a truckload of material being sent to one of our recycling partners. Transparency is our goal so that our customers, as well as inspectors and auditors, can easily assess the success of our recycling operations. Our goal is to not only achieve the highest rate of recycling, but to also work with those recycling partners who are dedicated to recovering the maximum amount of materials using methods that protect worker safety and the environment.

All outgoing shipments of e-waste are recorded on our shipment manifests. Bills of Lading are maintained for each shipment. C&I Electronics retains all records of incoming and outgoing shipments for a minimum of 3 years.
