Product Destruction

Products that fail to meet company standards or regulations pose a threat if not disposed of in a secure, documented fashion. That’s why the risk to our client’s corporate reputation is something that we take very seriously.

Landfills are no place for sensitive and defective materials that could end up in the wrong hands. As a safe, secure alternative, Wasteco offers product destruction services that render materials unusable and irretrievable. We also provide thorough documentation to help you satisfy the needs of regulators and stakeholders.
