Handling Challenging Devices in Challenging Times

With ongoing labor shortages how do ITADs process increased quantities of newer and more challenging devices?

Please join Chris Thacker, Senior ITAD Sales Engineer at Blancco and Rike Sandlin, CEO and founder of Rivervista Partners in a discussion about handling challenging assets from the past, present, and future. In this session we will discuss best practices on how to assess, erase and accurately report on Chromebooks, Network Equipment, and other challenging assets. We will explain how to increase efficiencies, while reducing manual touch-time and inconsistent grading, with a reduced labor force.

Being Socially Responsible

Being a technology company comes with stewardship of both the environment and data protection.  And as good, corporate citizens we also have a social responsibility to our local communities.  Hear one such story of an ASCDI Member who saw an opportunity to bring all three responsibilities together to make a difference.

Where, who, what and when- Tracing Products in a Circular Economy

Where did it come from?  Who did what to it?  Was the data really erased?  How can I be sure that it did not end up in a landfill?  All good questions that your customers are asking that you soon will have to answer. Founded in 2017, OBADA is a coalition of over 100 organizations that provide asset disposition services for end-of-life electronics. The goal is to provide PROOF when device data is destroyed and when devices are properly recycled.

KEEP is an innovation project led by Chalmers Industriteknik aiming to create a traceability solution for electronic products. The 14 project partners are working together towards a future with sustainable production, increased re-use, and recycling.

Sensitive data must be destroyed to prevent data breaches. Toxic materials must be disposed of properly. Lithium, cobalt, and rare-earth elements must be recovered. Traceability in recycling is the answer.
