OEM Manufacturers and E-Waste Recycling

Direct Resource Management is committed to responsible electronic recycling and keeping electronics out of the waste stream. Maximizing the reuse of electronics and their components through parts harvesting, redeployment and remarketing is our first goal.

DRM offers the following solutions:

  • Program Planning and Implementation
  • Data Protection and Destruction Services with Reporting
  • Full Auditing and Reporting of Electronic Assets and Products
  • Complete Chain of Custody
  • Sustainability Reporting
  • Certified Recycling
  • Certified Product Destruction

With the increase in State laws requiring that Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM) responsibly recycle obsolete consumer electronics; many OEM's have recognized their role in offering both environmentally sustainable electronic products and also participating in the collection of retired electronic products for reuse and recycling.

An OEM handling end-of-life disposal responsibly is a part of being not only a good environmental steward but also meeting compliance and regulatory requirements.

OEM objectives and demands are radically different from all most other entities. DRM knows that OEMs face specific concerns when selecting an electronics recycling service provider, including:


The principal demand of OEMs is ensuring that all obsolete, non-working, off-book and off-lease equipment is dismantled. Several OEMs have been burned from recyclers reselling parts or equipment. The results caused grave environmental, legal, and business problems.

  • DRM earned a reputation among OEMs for integrity. Many of DRM's OEM clients are major electronics manufacturers. DRM assumes the responsibility to protect these customers from environmental and legal liability. DRM management installed rigorous redundant Chain-of-Custody steps to ensure no electronic equipment in the recycling process returns to the market.
  • DRM also provides detailed reports to OEM customers with equipment transport detail. This complete accountability comforts customers, knowing de-manufacturing and destruction or recycling of equipment occurred and no decommissioned equipment found its way to the marketplace.

DRM's End-to-End Management System

Original Equipment Manufacturers want to optimize productive time, which means avoiding logistics minutia. OEMs want service partners to manage national and global turnkey projects.

DRM has helped a number of OEMs transport equipment, whether from clients or their own facility. DRM responsibilities include:

  • Communication
  • Coordination
  • Negotiating best logistic prices
  • Ensuring timely pick-up and delivery of every shipment

DRM's turnkey services released OEMs from devoting valuable time dealing with unproductive issues, but more importantly, the system also produced significant logistics cost savings.
