Genesis Electronics Recycling is a recycling company which recycles electronics, computers, and other digital equipment, and also destroys hard drives for security compliance and confidentiality measures. Located in Buffalo Grove, this company serves the northwest suburbs, including Lincolnshire, Wheeling, Long Grove, Prospect Heights, Arlington Heights, Vernon Hills, Mundelein, Palatine, Deerfield, Hawthorn Woods, Lake Zurich, Mt Prospect, Northbrook, Highland Park, Highwood, Inverness, Libertyville, Des Plaines, Lake Bluff, Lake Forest, Glenview, and Morton Grove. The company has been in business since 2010 and is a member of the Illinois Recycling Association, the National Association for Information Destruction, and a sponsor for Ronald McDonald House Charities and the Les Turner ALS Foundation. The company is ISO 14001:2004 certified and ISO OHSAS 18001 certified as well as R2 (Responsible Recycling)-2013 certified.

This company provides recycling services for electronic equipment by hand-disassembling all electronics so that they can be utilized as feedstock for raw material extraction processes, such as smelting and refining, and then be used again for new electronics. This process is better for the environment, as shredding electronics, like other recycling companies do, sends e-waste into the air and water and further contaminates the earth. The only materials which Genesis Electronics Recycling shreds are hard drives, which are fully self-contained and which must be shredded in order to ensure that their data is not compromised. This company provides document destruction by shredding hard drives on-site, scanning the hard drive to capture its model and serial number for documentation and allowing their customers to supervise the process. The company then provides a certificate with all the pertinent information for the customer's records.
