New York City-based The 4th Bin, which offers door-to-door collection of e-scrap for area commercial businesses, has expanded its service offering, adding what it calls “ethical and secure” on-site data destruction.
 The 4th Bin says its secure, on-site data destruction program ensures that all assets have full on-site data destruction certification for total auditability. The 4th Bin says it reconciles and tracks assets throughout the disposal process, offering transparency and complete data destruction.
The company says it can shred about 150 to 300 PC or server drives per hour and roughly 400 to 500 laptop drives per hour at its customers’ locations.
Alongside its new commercial offering, The 4th Bin has also participated in various community service and nonprofit initiatives. Most recently, The 4th Bin has decided to donate proceeds to The Make-A-Wish Foundation, at a customer’s discretion. The 4th Bin says it has worked with various commercial partners, including The New School, ZipCar and R/GA, to organize corporate and community-wide electronics recycling events.
