outdated or defective product destruction

Outdated Product Destruction

Commercial products and materials do not always meet quality or safety standards. These are referred to as “off-spec products.” These plus recalled, outdated, damaged, overstock, or defective products must be destroyed. The outdated product destruction and and defective product destruction and disposal must be in compliance with area, state and federal rules and regulations. A professional product destruction services company will provide such certified and secure product destruction services, as well as certified data destruction.

Unfortunately, some manufacturers do not choose outdated product destruction. Sometimes these products become part of the ‘gray market.’ The customers who purchase the ‘gray-market’ products are not given access to any warranties from the manufacturer. Plus, these products, are typically faulty and of substandard quality.  Naturally, the consumers who are given access to goods through the ‘gray market’ will connect the poor quality of these products to the manufacturer’s business, damaging their reputation.

In order to maintain the solid reputation of the business and brand, companies must secure proper outdated product destruction of these off-spec or expired products through a fully licensed hazardous and non-hazardous waste-disposal service.
