Healthcare Technology and Medical Electronics and  Recycling and Disposition

The rapid advancement in medical technologies is increasing the pace of replacements and increasing the need for recycling of used and obsolete medical electronics. Comprenew can help. We make it easy to do the right thing.

Healthcare technology and medical devices require special attention when being recycled. Not only do many of these devices contain  hazardous materials, but they may also contain sensitive patient health information. A tight chain of custody is maintained through the disposition process. 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.) All assets are carefully tracked and monitored. Asset tracking records and certificates of destruction are available. On data retaining devices, Comprenew can provide certificates of data destruction.

Whenever possible, Comprenew prioritizes refurbishment over recycling. When refurbishment is not possible, we disassemble healthcare technologies and medical electronics, routing recovered components into streams of commodities that can be reused or converted into raw materials again.

If you have healthcare technologies and medical electronics requiring secure asset disposition, take them to one of our drop-off locations or click the button the schedule a secure pick-up.

On-site data destruction and decommissioning services are available. Comprenew also offers complete IT Asset Disposition (ITAD) through its Secure Asset Technology Disposition services.
