    Obsolete, recalled or outdated products carry liability if they appear on the open market. Once a company decides to dispose of these materials, it is imperative that their disposal is guaranteed. Landfills  will not ensure the secure disposal of the materials they receive.

    Our product destruction process is straightforward and transparent.

    Once you contact us to let us know you want to dispose of unwanted products, we securely transport them to our facilities. Here, depending on the nature of the products, we use methods such as shredding, crushing, or incineration to ensure they’re irrecoverable and ready for disposal.
