R2 V3 Certified
Rios Certified Recycler

SERI is pleased to congratulate Summit 360 for being one of the first facilities
to certify to R2v3, the newest version of the R2 Standard!

“Certification to R2v3 goes beyond providing assurance that electronics will be securely and responsibly managed,”
says R2 Director, Sean De Vries. “R2v3 Certification also provides customers with additional information about
the specific areas of expertise that have been certified at each facility. Summit 360’s certification scope
includes managing the downstream recycling chain, logical and physical data sanitization, and test & repair
of equipment for reuse — all very important capabilities for supporting a circular economy for electronics.

Introducing ITAD by Summit 360

Security, tracking, sustainability, and ROI –
all in one place.

When it’s time to dispose of your used IT hardware, maximizing the ROI on your equipment is important –
but it shouldn’t be the only thing on your mind. The security of your data is crucial, and being able to track the
environmental downstream diligence is essential. You need a partner who has a proven process, a sophisticated
ERP for tracking and transparency, and a focus on security to protect your most precious asset – your data.
IT Security

Security Above All Else

From the time a piece of hardware leaves your facilities to its arrival at Summit 360, and through our entire ITAD process, the security of your data is our first priority – and it should be yours as well.
Visit Summit 360 and you’ll be greeted with:
  • State-of-the-art surveillance, cameras, and access controls
  • Vetted, background-checked staff
We secure your hardware, we secure our people, and most important, we secure your data – from start to finish.

IT Environmental Diligence

Environmental Diligence

As downstream due diligence has become a focus, and new conditions have been tied to disposing of hardware, choosing the right ITAD partner is critical.
We adhere to strict:
  • Environmental repurposing practices
  • Documentation of our disposal programs
  • Assurance that all downstream vendors are in compliance
  • Regulations regarding toxic and harmful material handling
At Summit 360, we started working within the circular economy before they gave it a name, and we’re uniquely positioned to help you meet today’s environmental requirements.
IT ROI

Maximizing ROI

As much as ITAD is about maintaining the highest standards of security, tracking, and environmental diligence, we’re also focused on making sure you get the best returns possible on your used equipment.
A differentiating element of our ITAD process involves refurbishing used hardware and giving it a second life – while also putting money back in your pocket. Our ITAD strategy always includes helping you maximize your hardware investments.

Not all ITAD partners are created equal…

Within the ITAD industry, there are massive variations in the security, processes, reporting, and ROI you’ll receive.
At Summit 360, we’ve invested the resources, finances, and energy into creating an ITAD service we’re willing to stand behind.
Disposing of your hardware can come with risks. It’s our job to eliminate those dangers and replace them with confidence.

Waste free, worry free.

A $100,000 mistake…

In 2014, Visionworks experienced two data breaches that impacted over 120,000 individuals.
As encrypted servers were being upgraded, the first incident involved a mistakenly discarded
server containing the Protected Health Information of approximately 75,000 individuals.
The second incident impacted about 45,000 records. Although there was little risk to the breach
victims in either case, there was a violation of the HIPAA Security Rule and safeguards,
which led to Visionworks having to pay a $100K data breach settlement.
