What happens to my computer?

  • At NISWMD computer equipment is sent to a contractor where it is demanufactured and prepared for processing. All hard drives are shredded for security purposes.
  • Components can be used for various things after being demanufactured. Circuit boards can be recovered and placed into new units, plastic housings from CPUs may be used as roadbed fill and CRT glass (screen of a monitor) is used to make new CRT glass.
