WHAT IS PRODUCT DESTRUCTION: Product destruction service enables secure, verifiable destruction of obsolete or discontinued products, recalled items, and outdated trademarked materials. Your product destruction provider transports these items to a destruction processing plant.

WHY SHOULD I DESTROY PRODUCTS I NO LONGER WANT: Products with trademarks and logos are corporate assets; it they fall into the wrong hands, it can seriously damage your brand. Destroying no longer wanted products limits your company’s liability, and prevents proprietary information from being stolen.

IS PRODUCT DESTRUCTION REQUIRED BY LAW: Under Federal law, businesses are required to destroy items that contain sensitive, personal or medical information. If someone’s privacy is compromised with your product, your company is responsible and is subject to fines. Destroy obsolete or unwanted products to avoid non-compliance penalties.

Carelessly discarding products can seriously damage your brand. Throwing away unwanted products using general waste streams may seem like a simple solution, but the reality is much more complex. Trade secrets are exposed. Your business becomes more vulnerable to competitors. Things get messy. What was once a quick fix has turned into a new pile of problems.

Our product destruction services take away these risks. We ensure business security to save you time, money, and the risk of identity theft. Whether you need a one-time pickup or regularly scheduled removal, we collect your materials on-site for fast, secure product destruction.
