Earth Day 2015 Wrap-up

With Earth Day 2015 coming to a close, Turtle Wings is proud to announce that this year’s Earth Day celebration was one of our biggest and best ever.  Our sales and management personnel coordinated and scheduled a variety of activities including electronics recycling events, Gaylord drop-offs, business and residential pick-ups, on-site data destruction projects, and customer drop-offs.  The following Earth Day 2015 wrap-up gives our many readers a brief description of some of the activities that contributed to its overall success.

One of our most convenient options for electronics recycling is our Gaylord box drop-off, which allows people to bring their electronics to the site of the Gaylord and place them in the box for recycling.  Once the Gaylord box is full, Turtle Wings will return to pick-up and transport the Gaylord box with electronic pieces to our recycling center.  Gaylord boxes provide excellent electronics recycling options.  For Earth Day 2015, we dropped off and picked up nearly 100 Gaylords with equipment totaling 38, 216 pounds.

In addition to Gaylord boxes, another major player for this year’s Earth Day was our electronics recycling events that offer on-site data destruction.  By offering on-site data destruction via hard drive crushing at our events, Turtle Wings is able to tap into the data security market which many people and companies are adamant about.  Our highly effective, patent-protected, impactor pulverization machinery will destroy the hard drive platter rendering the data unrecoverable.  Our equipment bends, crushes and pierces the platter destroying it so it can no longer be spun hence the data is unrecoverable.  Turtle Wings then recycles the hard drives in compliance with all local, state and federal regulations.  This year we hosted 15 events and destroyed a total of 224 customer hard drives at our events.

Many people in the communities we serve look forward to Turtle Wings annual participation in their Earth Day electronics recycling and data destruction activities because they know we are R2 certified and are a compliant recycler with a no e-waste landfill policy.  Recycling electronics with a certified electronics recycler like Turtle Wings is an easy way to help the environment.  This Earth Day 2015 wrap-up provides a brief snapshot of the many activities that Turtle Wings is proud to offer our customers for Earth Day and throughout the year.  Turtle Wings is excited about this year’s increase and we are committed to the businesses and residents in the communities we serve as well as reducing the nationwide environmental footprint.
