Should your compliance team require verification of destruction, we allow you to witness the compliant destruction of your equipment either in person at our processing facility or via webcam.
Security, brand protection and documented/verified destruction are core drivers of defense agencies and contractors when managing the physical destruction of retired equipment.
SLS provides certified destruction of proprietary technology including field gear, radar systems, prototypes, military hardware and computer and telecommunication equipment. We operate secure, certified and monitored facilities to manage destruction of equipment.
SLS provides secure online access for requesting services, monitoring equipment handling, and processing and generating reporting.
Our on-line reporting is flexible and provides:
Our portal manages the inventory and logistics of multiple sites, providing reporting by location as needed. This integrated solution introduces significant efficiencies in managing regional and global programs.
SLS is a business of Sims Metal Management (Sims), a leading global metal recycler. Few companies can offer global electronics recycling and metal recycling solutions like Sims. Our status as a publicly traded company gives our clients confidence that we adhere to regulations and do not cut corners in managing our destruction services. We protect our clients’ brand reputation in the same way we protect our own.
Our certified facilities have the capacity and capability to handle complex destruction projects in a timely manner. Our services are secure and bolstered by pollution liability and cyber insurance and auditing of all downstream vendors.
We have rigorous protocols for handling and processing precious metals-bearing alloys frequently utilized in the aerospace and defense industries. As an ITAR certified company with locations throughout the world, we are able to support the global supply chains typical in the aerospace industry.
Unique to the Defense and Aerospace industries is the use of significant amounts of precious metals to meet stringent quality specs. We have the expertise to identify and process these metals in otherwise mundane scrap, allowing SLS to share the additional revenue back with the client. Other options for revenue return are parts harvesting and resale of select parts, but only with the approval of the client. SLS has recovered hundreds of thousands of dollars for our clients from easy to pull components such as memory and processors.
Leveraging the capabilities of Sims Metal Management, we have equipment and personnel who can plan and manage disassembly and shipment of large equipment. Our field services teams can coordinate logistics and transportation of disassembled equipment.
It is your responsibility, as the equipment owner, to make sure that your equipment is being processed consistent with your standards and regulatory requirements.
