Houston, TX (PRWEB) October 25, 2016
When Refael Bekhor launched R.A.K.I. Computers in November of 1991, e-waste recycling wasn't on most people's radar yet. Recycling was still voluntary, and recycling companies didn't require certification. There was absolutely no oversight governing how e-waste was handled or destroyed.
Nevertheless, Refael was passionate about two things: protecting natural resources and helping companies solve the security and logistical issues associated with electronics waste.
Over time, R.A.K.I. became the trusted choice for Houston-area businesses.
"We gained Houston's trust through education and showing companies that it's not only ethical to recycle but it's also worthwhile to do from all aspects." explains Amit Behor, Vice President of Operations. "R.A.K.I. has spent the last 25 years serving businesses and providing a turn-key solution for their e-waste disposal needs. The partnerships we've built over time allowed everyone to learn about protecting the environment. We've been especially vigilant about teaching people to recognize the danger in not disposing equipment properly both in terms of environmental aspects and security concerns."
High-integrity customer service has also contributed to R.A.K.I.'s success. Their pick-up services and recycling events make it easy for companies to do the right thing and to do so in a highly cost-effective manner. Their data destruction service and hard drive shredding capabilities keep customer information safe from identity thieves and other criminals who might put it to ill use, in addition to protecting corporate financial data and trade secrets.
Amit notes one of R.A.K.I.'s biggest challenges has been navigating the rapid-fire changes the industry has undergone over the past quarter of a century. They got certified as soon as Texas began requiring certifications in 2008. They adopted a strict no-landfill policy and have consistently met or exceeded all EPA quality guidelines. Today R.A.K.I. holds the highest certifications in the recycling industry including R2, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001.
Amit says he's excited to see where the field of e-waste recycling takes R.A.K.I. next.
"We're happy to have made a positive impact on the environment for the past 25 years. We'll be celebrating all year, and working hard in anticipation of completing 25 more wonderful years!"
