Over 400 customers worldwide have chosen us because of our dedication to the environment, our stellar services that get them the best return on their recyclable electronics, and the ease of scheduling and doing business with us. We have led in the reverse supply chain industry in Dallas since 1979 and those years of experience has given us an edge for our clients that none of our competition can match.
Early in the history of our company we recognized many repeated problems that tech businesses were facing. As technology progressed, many machines that contained toxic elements needed to be upgraded, and thrown out. They couldn't be disposed of with the regular garbage or recycling and they posed a greater threat to pollution than most modern products.
That's how the passions for maintaining proper disposal of electronic waste for healthy and clean water and air for our communities began. High turnover rates for electronics became a commonplace for the tech industries and waste was piling up, proper disposal was a real question mark for companies who wanted to keep costs low or see returns on their expensive infrastructure. In those early years when large arrays of electronics were becoming standard machines for businesses and individuals, our industry began.
Since then we've been working to be a single destination for electronic remarketing, recycling, and disposal needs.
Our Quality Policy
We certify with ISO 900 and 14000 each year and always try to further the ways we can improve our services for our customers. We seek to understand new ways that we can create value with electronic materials and protect our client's data. We accomplish this by allowing new ideas with strong merit to challenge any old policy or procedure, and it has served us well for over 30 years.
Our Environmental Policy
We strive to be a true steward of the environment. At the core of our business we implement strategies for reusing and recycling electronics, and through those methods work to protect the environment and limit as much waste as possible. Our environmental strategies are constantly upgraded as the industry and our abilities evolve. Our overall goals are:
- Understand and help execute proper environmental requirements and laws set forth by federal, local and community laws, ordinances, and rules.
- Prevent as much pollution as possible
- Conserve natural resources
- Improve our own environmental policies
Our industry has seen some tough times over the years. Initially the problems and pollution created by electronics did a lot of harm to many communities worldwide, but many efforts have help curtail unethical practices and pointed us on a path towards clean and functional procedures that clean up and recycle the mess at a low cost.
Over the last few decades many national, state and international laws and procedures have been put in place to help stop some of the cleanup before the product is even made with laws to help reduce toxic components in the first place. In other instances like batteries toxic elements are clear and new laws have been put in place to help share the burden of recycling these types of electronics. At any given time many state and local governments are considering e-waste legislative measures.
Other major directives include:
Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive: BCD has an additional location serving businesses in Madrid, Spain and this European policy helped improve efforts to reduce waste in that region tremendously. It also helped govern their importation laws so even international businesses in the US have taken notice.
RoHS Directive: Adopted in 2002 and implemented in 2006 the banning of the use of lead, mercury, cadmium, and many other dangerous elements helped to reduce the health impact of disposal and exposure in industrial applications.
The EC Draft Directive for Enegry Using Products (EUP): This important policy helps to protect from importing dirty products which don't meet environmental standards.
In 2011 the Texas Takeback law was signed to help curb the amount of toxic waste from CRT teevisions and monitor screens. This law forces manufacturers to be responisble for the cleanup involved in desconstrucintg these screens.
