Reducing Our Impact on the Environment
All of our sites follow a Stewardship Management System. Which is intended to meet the requirements of the ISO 14001:2015 International Standard as defined by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), e-Stewards Standard for Ethical and Responsible Reuse, Recycling and Disposition of Electronic Equipment and Information Technology v.4.0 and NAID AAA Certification. The purpose of the certification is to reduce North Coast Services’ impact on the environment, worker health and safety, data security, and social responsibility as a result of its operations and activities.

North Coast Services operates in the State of New Hampshire as a Large Quantity Handler Destination Facility for the collection, consolidation and dismantling of universal waste. North Coast is required by state laws to appropriately track and manage universal waste and have procedures in place to protect the environment in the case of unintended breakage for materials that are in storage.
North Coast Services accepts the following types of universal waste:
- Mercury containing lamps
- Mercury containing devices
- Rechargeable batteries
- Alkaline primary batteries
- CRT televisions and monitors
- Other electronics
Our facility consists of covered and secure warehouse space. Prior to acceptance, all materials must be containerized using industry standard packaging. Universal waste lamps are palletized to protect the materials while in storage. Mercury containing lamps and rechargeable batteries are repacked and consolidated for shipment to an approved recycler. Electronics are triaged for type and condition upon receipt. Data containing equipment is isolated and secured for electronic erasure services or physical destruction. Based on customer specification, reusable electronics are set aside for possible resale after thorough testing. All equipment that is determined to be “End of Life” is manually disassembled into commodity components for recycling.
Data containing devices are of utmost concern to North Coast Services. Upon a customer’s initial set up, North Coast Services explains the various options for data device handling and destruction to ensure our customers are provided with an appropriate service.
While North Coast Services does not recycle hazardous waste, it does use its connections in the industry to broker services. Included in this service is the gathering of multiple quotes to ensure that the customer gets the best price.
Commodity Revenue Share
North Coast Services offers an Asset Revenue Share program in which North Coast takes in material for resale and provides a Revenue Share back to the customer. The credit can be used against an invoice, if applicable, or a check can be issued at the customer’s request. North Coast does not back charge for items handled if we are unsuccessful at moving through a reuse program and the material must be managed as scrap. North Coast provides a purchase order to the customer for item(s) sold and will provide any back-up data for the sold item(s) as requested.
North Coast assumes responsibility from the time of pickup at the customer’s facility through the sale or “End of Life” of the product(s) and will provide a Certificate of Recycling once received or processed for End of Life.
We assume all responsibility to handle the material within appropriate State and Federal guidelines.
