Recycling Made Easy.

Miners simply does it better. We have made a substantial
financial investment in education, training and
equipment to create a better way to recycle and
re-use, one that makes a lot of common sense and
is sustainable over the long haul.
you bring your recyclable materials to Suburban
Miners main facility or to one of our quick drop
locations, you will have the peace of mind knowing
that your items go through the following processes
you speak with one of our representatives and have
a special request, this is what happens after you
drop off your items for recycling:
Security Inspection: All items
are carefully inspected initially for data containing
disks, media and hard drives. All found items are
physically removed from computers and electronics
and placed into a secure
locked cage. This ensures physical separation from
any on site visitors and protects your data from
theft. Most hard drives are destroyed within minutes of your arrival and if requested are automatically shredded on our ameri-shred hard drive shredding equipment. You may witness this process upon request. It is common for us to invite you to watch the process if you have a few minutes to spare. If you would prefer us to use our hardware wiping solution and reuse the hard drives then your drives are segregated and protected
in a locked cage and are guarded by our alarm system and our video
monitoring security system. Once your hard drives
are wiped they are then placed into our reuse stream for sales to refurbishers within the USA.
Re-Use: All non data containing items are then inspected
for resale value. If any whole item has any resale
value it is sorted and separated and placed into
our reuse stream.
Dismantling for re-use: Items containing
resalable items within them are further dismantled
and redeployed back into the marketplace
Remanufacturing: Many times we
can take items from multiple donations and combine
them to build or repair a broken item. Laptop computers
are a good example of how we do this. We stockpile
non working laptops and combine multiple broken
units until a new working unit emerges from the
parts. We do this whenever we can and where it makes
economic sense. We also sell broken items as-is
through our multiple sales channels for parts and through this
we can place many things back into the marketplace
that you might not have otherwise thought possible.
Recycling: Anything left without
a resale value is then completely dismantled, sorted and placed
into our recycling bins for sales to our certified downstream recycling vendors.
