The convenient way to collect your technotrash
GreenDisk offers two full-service options that include a collection
box, all transportation, the destruction of content on media, and recycling of associated material – the
GreenDisk Technotrash Can and the
GreenDisk eMedia Recycler.
The GreenDisk Technotrash Can
The GreenDisk Technotrash Can is a
collection box specially made for easy disposal of a
wide variety of
technotrash. It is perfect for disposing of your technotrash at the
time you no longer need it rather than waiting for it to pile up.
No longer need some CDs or have some old diskettes,
drop them in the box. Dead cell phones, mystery cables, old tapes -
don't throw them in the trash can - throw them in the Technotrash Can!
When the box is full, we responsibly recycle all your e-waste and
take care of the secure disposal of all your private information.
Then, for your records, we send you a Certificate of Destruction
that documents compliance with
regulatory requirements, company policies, or just your own personal
There are two sizes of Technotrash Cans:
Technotrash Can Standard (12” x 14.25” x 15.5”) and
Technotrash Can Tall (12” x 14.25” x 25.5”)
The Technotrash Can Standard is small, enables you to
recycle up to 35 lbs., and is easy to lift and move around.
The Technotrash Can Tall is 10 inches
higher than the Standard and you can ship up to 70 lbs., space
permitting for both boxes.
cans are designed to conveniently fit into your office environment
using just one square foot of your floor space (dimensions are
approximately 1 foot by 1 foot with varying height).
You can dispose of any computer-related waste
that fits into your Technotrash Can. That includes
anything from a CD to a laptop.

please use our Computer and
Components Recycling Service.
The GreenDisk eMedia Recycler
The GreenDisk eMedia Recycler is also a collection box similar to the Technotrash Can but
focuses exclusively on media and their cases for organizations that
place a priority on the secure destruction of their content and,
specifically, desire regular compliance reporting for regulatory or
internal corporate purposes.
Like the Technotrash Can, the eMedia Recycler has two sizes: Standard (12” x 14.25” x 15.5”) and
Tall (12” x 14.25” x 25.5”)
The eMedia Recycler is the preferred collection box for those wanting
annual reports and recycling larger quantities of denser media (CDs
and DVDs). The Standard is allowed up to 50 lbs. and the Tall is
allowed up to 100 lbs., space permitting for both boxes. The
eMedia Recycler also includes the individual Certificates of
Destruction and the cumulative Enterprise Recycling Compliance Report as detailed below.
With either the Technotrash Can or eMedia Recycler, you conveniently pay one fee that includes the
collection box, shipping of the technotrash to the GreenDisk processing facility, processing,
and Certificate of Destruction.
Enterprise Recycling Compliance Report
GreenDisk also offers a compliance report detailing an
organization’s technotrash returns by location by weight and number
of boxes. The report is generated upon your request; the charge for
this report is $250.
The Enterprise Recycling Compliance Report is provided free of charge
annually for any organization that has
purchased $1000 or more of Technotrash services during the
prior two calendar years or who is in the eMedia Recycler Program.
If you qualify for a free Report and your organization has different
timing requirements, contact GreenDisk Customer Service.
