5th Annual Flowers for Towers
When it comes to analyzing website traffic, two essential sources often come under the spotlight:...
Remote backup disaster recovery includes a few different moving pieces. The first is remote backups – this essentially means a company that provides networking services, such as iPoint Technologies, routinely makes copies of your company’s most significant data, and then stores those copies on a server that is located somewhere far away from your office. That way, if a disaster occurs – such as a wildfire, or one of your employees clicks on a suspicious link that downloads a ton of ransomware onto your servers, and suddenly you cannot access any business information unless you pay a huge ransom to strangers over the internet – your company’s information is safe and can be recovered! (Take that, fraudsters!)

Is an old computer sitting in your garage collecting dust? Is your broken laptop moonlighting as a table coaster? We’ve got you covered this Earth Day weekend. iPoint is announcing our 5th annual Flowers for Towers.
What is Flowers for Towers?
We designed Flowers for Towers to empower our communities to properly dispose of toxic materials and better the environment.
Not only does Flowers for Towers prevent dangerous toxins from ending up in landfills, but it saves you money. Most local recyclers charge a minimum of $15 per laptop; we’re helping you protect the planet for free. We’ll even throw in a $5 gift card to the Fort Collins Nursery. Then you can better the local environment with flowers, trees, and vegetables.
Why should I recycle my e-waste?
It takes around 539 pounds of fossil fuels, 48 chemicals, and 1.5 tons of water to create just one computer. E-waste contains toxins like mercury that can seriously harm the environment, yet only 20% of the world’s laptops, cell phones, and towers are recycled.
Worldwide, we throw over 50 million metric tons of e-waste into landfills each year. That waste contributes to 70% of all toxic waste. By recycling your old computers, we can minimize our carbon footprint, preserving our planet for the next generation.
What was our impact last year?
Our goal is to recycle 100,000 pounds by 2020, and we are well on our way. Since 2014, we’ve collected over 54,000 pounds of e-waste.
What do you accept?
We accept PC’s, laptops and servers. We’ll even securely wipe your hard-drive. No one will be able to access your personal information. We do not accept monitors or printers.
Bring your old electronic equipment to iPoint Technologies April 20th – 21st from 10 am to 4 pm. We’ll help you unload your equipment, get you a free gift card, and even enter you into some fun raffles to win prizes. See you there!
