Chantilly-based Securis recycled almost one million pounds of electronic storage devices in 2018 — including old computers, monitors, memory boards, and smartphones.

Moreover, the company trains and employs high school students and individuals with disabilities through a special job training partnership with ServiceSource, Inc.

“This is a significant milestone,” said Jeremy Farber, owner and president. “We are excited and know we’ll do even better next year. A lot of this work was done by people with disabilities who have become fully integrated into our workforce.”

Securis is a faith-based company dedicated to helping safely and securely dispose of computer hard drive destruction, as well as all of the e-waste recycling that is critically needed when old IT equipment is discarded.

“One of our core values is to be of service to the community, and we’re pleased to be able to help nonprofits and schools with free electronics recycling,” said Farber. “Nothing we process ends up in a landfill.”
