Destroy Your Defective Product Securely
Without correct disposal through defective product destruction, your defective products, prototypes and recalls can turn up in the resale market to compete against you. There is also the chance of image, logo, and brand theft.
We can destroy almost any electronic equipment you make – from printers and mobile phones to PCs and hover boards – and they are demolished in full compliance with federal, state, and local regulations.
At All Green, your items are not just thoughtfully disposed, they are permanently destroyed.

Case Study: Recalled Whitegoods Are “Ticking Time Bombs”
Numerous reports are surfacing of whitegoods – particularly refrigerators and freezers – exploding and causing grave injuries and even death. If that wasn’t disturbing enough, further reports suggest that many of the whitegood death traps were defective products and had been subject to a recall, according to the Daily Mail.
- Shocking revelations suggest that the devastating fire in a London apartment block earlier in 2017 may have originated when a refrigerator exploded in a fourth-floor apartment. The fire, which was so devastating that London Fire Commissioner Dany Cotton described it as “an unprecedented incident” and of a scale that he has not previously seen in his 29 years of service, killed at least 80 people, according to the BBC.
- In February 2017, a 54-year-old man barely survived after his refrigerator exploded with such force that the door was blown off its hinges, according to the Daily Mail. The appliance in question was a Samsung RS21NCNS fridge freezer which had been discontinued eight years earlier, in 2009.
- Also in 2017, a 63-year-old man died after his faulty Beko fridge-freezer, which was the subject of a safety recall, exploded.
- Another Beko fridge-freezer explosion caused the death of a man in 2014, who died saving two children after the appliance exploded in north London. The refrigerator had been recalled 11 years earlier, in 2003.
The Daily Mail also reported that more than 250 electrical products have been the subject of a defective product recall over the past six years, yet huge numbers of defective whitegoods are still in circulation.
The question then becomes: how many of these defective products are still being used because they were purchased prior to the recall and the owners are unaware that the product has been recalled, and how many were sold on the gray or black market after the recall was announced?
If manufacturers are not vigilant about making use of defective product destruction to completely eradicate all forms of a product once it has been identified as unsafe or defective, goods can easily end up on the gray or black market by unscrupulous retailers looking to make easy money.
