Auditing Disposals

Have you ever been audited to demonstrate where your company's old terminals went? Does someone have the receipts to show their proper disposal? Companies have a cradle-to-grave responsibility to properly handle and dispose of material they use. Visit the recy-

cler's facility to verify that they are properly handling and disposing of these toxic materials as promised. These visits should be unannounced and be made throughout the year.

In your business case, go as deep as you feel is necessary to describe the problem. The key points are to identify the breadth of the issue (there are more electronics to throw away than just desktop PCs) and the potential legal liabilities for improper disposal. Most companies mitigate these issues by contracting with a qualified recycling company and requiring that they address all of the issues.
