Our co-founder, Will, was on the “environmentenlist” podcast to discuss CircleIT and the Circular Economy.
THE LIFE OF YOUR DEVICE IS COMING TO ITS NEW BEGINNING
Used Device. Perpetual Life.
CircleIT supports the circular economy and embraces the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal #12: Responsible Consumption and Production. We break the linear consumption model of make, use, dispose and replace it with the circular model of make, use, repurpose. From batteries and screens to processors and motherboards, we ensure that all reusable pieces of your devices are kept out of landfills to limit waste. For each device you send in, you'll receive an environmental impact report that shows how your device has been reused and recycled.
As a Certified B Corporation, we’re part of a global movement that defines success as not only best IN the world, but best FOR the world.
An increasing amount of personal data and information are stored on our devices. Keeping your data protected is paramount to our process. Every device you send in will go through the same security measures that have earned us the trust of Fortune 500 companies who comply with HIPAA, FINRA and other regulatory authorities. Our processes are independently certified and NIST 800-88 compliant to ensure we meet or exceed every relevant industry standard.
Throughout the entire process, you'll have full transparency into how we're protecting, handling, and erasing the data on every device you send in.
- Every data-bearing device goes through a comprehensive data erasure process
- Consistent third-party forensic tests are performed monthly to ensure our erasure practices are industry leading
- A Serialized Certificate of Data Cleansing/Destruction is provided
- World-class compliance and certifications
- Compliance requirements include federal regulations such as RCRA, CWA, CAA, CERCLA, HIPPA, OSHA, and DOT
- Local, state, federal, and international laws and regulations governing data security and the reuse and recycling of electronics equipment are exceeded
Send in your device. Help change the world.
