Arrow Electronics’ sudden announcement to “initiate actions to close its personal computer and mobility asset disposition business” by the end of 2019 leaves their former customers without a solution in place for their IT asset disposition. Since Arrow will no longer be accepting items as of Monday, August 5th, human-I-T would like Arrow’s former customers to know that they can go beyond responsibly recycling their devices, and use those items to make a social impact as well as an environmental one. human-I-T has all of the resources in place to offer a comprehensive replacement of Arrow’s ITAD services.
human-I-T is a trusted, California-based, refurbishing corporation. We understand the importance of all businesses to work with a responsible, viable, and fully certified electronics data destruction company. Our standards provide all our current and future customers reliable and complimentary ITAD services, tax-deductible donation receipts, free nationwide pick-ups, and a clear conscious – our mission is to keep tech out of landfills and put it into the hands of those in need.
Partners like ColoPros and BeachBody say: “Teaming up with an organization that represents underserved [communities], is our obligation. From corporate office to enterprise donations, human-I-T has made our E-waste transactions seamless with their pick-up [service] and friendly staff.“
Co-Founder James Jack states “With ECS closing their doors last year and Arrow now exiting the ITAD space, we are seeing a shift in the landscape. Arrow and the other major ITAD providers are for-profit organizations, and the demands of shareholders are likely what led to Arrow’s decision to exit. Instead of simply profiting, human-I-T gives back to the community, providing resources for disadvantaged communities. As a non-profit, we have the ability to be more flexible and responsive to market forces since we are not beholden to investors. These and other recent closings are related to processing and disposal methods that the organizations’ were utilizing, rather than the type or condition of the equipment they received.”
human-I-T prioritizes your Data Security. The data sanitization methods that human-I-T uses are compliant with NIST 800-88, HIPAA, GLBA, FACTA, FISMA, and SOX, among other regulations. Along with an itemized donation receipt, donors receive a Certificate of Data Destruction confirming that all data was fully wiped or drives are physically destroyed. Since human-I-T is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization; any devices donated are tax deductible to the fullest extent permissible by law. human-I-T offers free reverse logistics for qualified donations in North America.
