We practice responsible disposition
Our recycling habits will typically entail sorting and preparing the materials so they can be easily reused or broken down into raw material to create a new product. Common items that are recycled are plastic, glass, paper, batteries and aluminum, but nearly everything can be recycled or reused.
In the first stage of recycling, old products are collected and then sorted, cleaned and made ready for their next life. In the second stage of recycling, a product designer or manufacturer has created a new product from the old material. You complete the cycle when you buy or use that product created from recycled material.
Our system clearly defines best practices for managing ewaste. We document and regularly check our downstream vendors to ensure that their compliance remains in line with ours. Final demanufactured product is recycled with a smelter who constantly is evaluated and receives report cards for their levels of emissions and recycling efficiency.

XTG’s value is in the efficient disposition of your IT assets and optimizing asset value in the aftermarket. The management of electronic waste (e-waste) is increasingly becoming a major factor in preserving our environment. The Federal government has been working to develop legislation addressing this problem, but has yet to found a law. Consequently, states and regions within states have stepped up and created their own laws. The legislation can be complicated, especially if your organization has multiple locations nationally.
Find out how we can save you time, money, and litigation headaches. All of XTG’s service programs ensure data security measures are compliant wtih U.S. Department of Defense Min spec DOD5022.22M and Nist 800-88 and manage the disposal of electronic waste responsibly and in accordance with all applicable laws. Under the scrutiny of SOX, HIPAA, FACTA and GLBA and other federal and state agencies improper disposal of obsolete IT assets and proprietary data pose huge financial and security risks not only for business but for individuals as well. Find out how our transparent and comprehensive chain of custody, results in earth friendly and compliant verified disposition. Though disks may have come down in price, it just doesn’t make financial sense to store every snip-it of electronic information permanently. Besides creating more hardware, software, and utilities costs, over-sized data stores make backups and enterprise search less efficient, and legal e-discovery more complicated. When you’re paying lawyers huge sums an hour to review e-mail and documents, a smaller pile means a smaller bill. Thus is why it’s its essential to frequently plan data disposition projects, hammering out policies that will govern how long the company stores its information and when it can be disposed. More organizations are implementing–data disposition strategies.
“By 2013, half of all Global 2000 companies will have formal records management systems to shepherd data through its life cycle”, Gartner estimates.
But this is one area CIOs and now CFOs must approach with caution. There are significant technological, regulatory, and organizational hurdles to clear before organizations can eliminate data with confidence. At the top of the list are compliance and legal. Every industry has mandated retention requirements. A large constellation of rules and regulations governs how long various types of information must be stored: 17 years for patient health records, six years for broker records, the lifetime of a building for construction and architectural documents, and indefinitely for certain kinds of environmental records and reports. But once mandated compliance periods are met, information should be destroyed.
It’s no coincidence that companies that have been through litigation at least once are more amenable to implementing data disposition policies.
