ProTek Recycling Inc. was founded by two engineering graduates from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute with the goal of developing a process for recycling all types of electronics from the ground-up. Ultimately, it was important to develop a process that was both sustainable and cost-effective.
With this in mind, we strive to maintain minimal to zero-cost recycling and pickups for our clients. All of our services are designed to be simple and efficient, allowing our customers to focus on their core business without having to worry about the logistics of their waste stream.
We have more than 10 years of experience in the industry and, with over 1500 clients served in the Manhattan area, we understand the unique recycling challenges experienced by NYC based businesses. In addition to serving the financial district and midtown Manhattan, our recycling services expand to businesses in New England, New Jersey, and the rest of New York.
Our mission is to develop a custom solution to fit each of our customer’s needs. From a one-time pickup to an ongoing program, we understand that each business requires something different. Our custom solutions ensure that your e-waste and data destruction is handled in a way that suits your business.
One aspect of our process that remains consistent is the protection of our customer’s data. Your data is never viewed, copied, or accessed. We also do not allow third parties to access your data containing material. A certificate of destruction provides you with the documentation of the process to keep for your records.
Also, when you work with ProTek Recycling you can be assured that it will be our employees that personally come to your office and bring your equipment directly back to our warehouse. We do not use subcontractors or third parties to pick up or transfer the equipment on ProTek’s behalf.
ProTek Recycling is a New York State registered electronic waste collection and recycling firm (DEC # 00838). We select our downstream vendors with great care, ensuring that any end-of-life material that could potentially be hazardous is given only to companies vetted to meet strict recycling standards. In addition, our strict zero-landfill policy ensures that all material is discarded in an environmentally friendly way.
ProTek Recycling also has collected and saved outdated and classic computer equipment and electronics over the years. We save these pieces to preserve history and also make them available to rent as prop rentals for advertising, theater productions, movies, and television shows.
If you have any questions, please let us know. An expert on our team would be happy to discuss your individual corporate needs to develop a custom solution for all of your electronic waste recycling and data destruction needs.
Protek is strongly committed to protecting the data of our clients. We will never view, copy, or otherwise access any data on hard drives that we receive, and we will protect any and all data containing devices from third-party access. We also provide in-house services that will completely and irrevocably destroy your data. Please view our data destruction page for a full outline of what we can do.
