Fax Machine Recycling and Disposition

Sometimes fax machines are stand-alone devices; other times, they are part of printers or copiers. These devices contain materials harmful to the environment, and they should not simply be routed to a landfill. If you have used or obsolete fax machines, bring them to Comprenew. We can help. We make it easy to do the right thing.

Comprenew prioritizes refurbishing fax machines and other electronic devices rather than recycling whenever possible. When refurbishment is not possible, we disassemble fax machines and recover components, routing them into streams of commodities that can be reused or converted into raw materials again.

Sometime fax machines can retain data and sensitive information. We necessary and appropriate, we properly destroy all data, either through complete shredding of data devices to small pieces or by removing device data using leading industry practices for media sanitization (NIST 800-88.)

If you have fax machines to be recycled or reused, take them to one of our drop-off locations or click the button to schedule a pick-up.

Comprenew also offers IT Asset Disposition (ITAD) through its Secure Asset Technology Disposition services.
