Certified E-Cycling for the Healthcare Industry

Whether you’re running a hospital or working at a dental office, we understand the importance of upgrading your electronic equipment to ensure optimal functionality and convenience for your patients. From ventilators to patient monitors, we can recycle them as long as your electronics consist of more than 70% metal or has a cord connected to it. This encompasses a wide range of equipment.

At DTG Recycle, we want to help you save time, money, and most importantly, our environment. We offer FREE business pickups for qualified E-Scrap over 500lbs. Pickup charges apply to residential loads.

Proper Healthcare and Medical Devices Disposal is Important.

All medical institutions – including hospitals, medical schools, clinics, dental offices, ophthalmology practices, med spa facilities, labs, nursing homes, and other healthcare facilities – heavily rely on technology and medical electronics. The demand for new technology is high in modern medical institutions due to their precision and efficiency. As a result, there is a growing need for the recycling of these technological equipment in the healthcare industry.

Recycling medical equipment requires special care, similar to other types of IT equipment. These devices often contain hazardous chemicals and sensitive information. Disposing of medical equipment in landfills is not an ideal solution. Improper disposal of electronic equipment poses significant risks to public health and the environment. State and federal regulations may require comprehensive documentation for recycled equipment, including unit serial numbers or certifications of destruction.

It is crucial for healthcare institutions to manage their electronic equipment in a manner that  protects data and ensures compliance with federal, state, and local laws.

Healthcare Clinic, Surgery, and Imaging Center Equipment

  • Computed tomography (CT) scans, also known as CAT scans, utilize x-rays to produce highly detailed and precise images of the body. CT scans contain iodine-based and barium-sulfate compounds, which can potentially harm people and the environment if disposed of improperly.
  • Magnetic Resonance Imaging or MRI is a non-invasive imaging system that enables the visualization of soft tissues without exposing the patient to radioactive materials. MRI machines contain gadolinium, which is a toxic rare earth element. Getting rid of MRI machines inappropriately may lead to harmful effects on our environment.
  • Ultrasound imaging utilizes high-frequency sound waves that are directed towards the body’s tissues to generate visual representations. When your ultrasound machine is no longer being used or has been replaced, let us recycle it.

DTG Recycle provides secure and reliable health clinic and surgery center equipment recycling.

Laboratory Equipment

The medical testing industry produces a significant amount of e-scrap. Laboratories require a diverse range of equipment to effectively conduct tests for various ailments, diseases, and medications. However, like any other industry, the rapid advancement of technology renders these equipment outdated over time. Medical laboratories often utilize highly specialized technology, which can pose challenges when it comes to proper disposal of the generated electronics. Additionally, the size and weight of certain laboratory equipment can further complicate the disposal and recycling process. DTG Recycle offers responsible laboratory equipment recycling services. We take care the disposal and recycling process, ensuring the most efficient and responsible approach for your electronic items.

Home Health Care Equipment

It is crucial to ensure the proper disposal of home health care equipment, such as CPAP machines, once they had reached the end of their lifespan. These machines contain valuable electronics that can be recycled or repurposed for other medical purposes, ensuring sustainability. At DTG Recycle, we offer a solution for home health agencies and rental organizations seeking to dispose of unwanted or outdated home health care equipment. We are here to assist you by scheduling a pickup at your convenience. Together, we can contribute to a sustainable and responsible approach in recycling home health care equipment.

Eye Care Equipment

Ophthalmologists perform thorough examinations of various parts of the eye to identify signs of illness. To assess different eye structures, they utilize a range of equipment. Managing the disposal of complex equipment in your eye care practice doesn’t have to be a hassle. DTG Recycle specializes in the secure and eco-friendly destruction of records, data, and x-ray films as well as responsible ophthalmologist equipment recycling.

MedSpa Equipment

As technology in the field of facial rejuvenation and fat removal continues to advance, the commitment to staying at the forefront of the industry drives medical spas to constantly improve their MedSpa equipment. The disposal of such equipment requires special attention. When it comes to medspa equipment recycling or secure data destruction of patient records, you can trust our knowledgeable experts at DTG Recycle to handle the process with care and expertise.

Dental Equipment

As a dentist, your commitment to providing exceptional care to your patients includes utilizing the latest advancements in dentistry and imaging technology. When it comes to implementing new technology, it’s crucial to ensure the proper disposal of outdated equipment, protecting your patients’ privacy and minimizing environmental risks. For over 2 decades, DTG Recycle has been dedicated to offering reliable and eco-friendly solutions for dental equipment recycling, x-rays, and information technology within the dental industry.

Medical Data Security is Crucial.

The protection of data is crucial for businesses across various sectors. However, it is especially critical in the healthcare industry, where confidentiality is of utmost importance. Healthcare professionals are bound by strict regulations when it comes to safeguarding patient information. In addition to complying with federal laws, they bear the responsibility of securing electronic protected health information (ePHI), patient identification details, and payment method information. Below are some of the rules a healthcare institution must abide by.

  • FACTA Disposal Rule
  • Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act
  • Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act (HITECH)
  • Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA)
  • Identity Theft and Assumption Deterrence Act
  • Patriot Act of 2002
  • PCI Data Security Standard
  • Sarbanes-Oxley Act

It is crucial for healthcare institutions to ensure proper disposal of the outdated tech while also complying with HIPAA regulations for data destruction and certified IT asset disposition. We specialize in providing safe, secure, and industry-compliant recycling and asset liquidation solutions tailored to the unique needs of healthcare organizations.

X-Ray Film Recycling and Secure Data Destruction

We follow a specialized process for x-ray film recycling and its data destruction. From the moment we pick up the x-rays, we handle the films with care, extracting them from their paper envelopes, and crushing them into smaller fragments. We then separate the silver nitrate component from the x-ray and plastic through a washing process. We prioritize confidentiality and ensure compliance with HIPAA regulations to protect your patients’ privacy and maintain their trust to your brand.
