Health & environment
The importance of certified and responsible electronics recycling:
Rapid advancement of technology and planned obsolescence leads to shorter technology life cycles. This has a direct relationship to e‑waste being one of the fastest growing segments in the global waste problem.
A shocking amount of e‑waste ends up in landfills or is exported to developing countries.
Ultimately, you are responsible to dispose of your surplus assets properly. According to the EPA, the generation, transportation, treatment, storage, and disposal of e‑waste is the ultimate responsibility of the owner of the equipment, regardless of the e‑waste contract you have in place (Resource Conservation & Recovery Act).
Through our simple & proven recycling process, we can take virtually any technology product and break it down to a commodity that is refined and repurposed.

Disassembly & Materials Harvesting
Technology products contain reusable precious metals & materials that can be dismantled, harvested, and sorted as like commodities to maximize reusable materials.
Any products that cannot be disassembled manually are shredded.
Harvested components & shredded material are then sorted with like material & repurposed back into their respective domestic channels as a commodity (copper, glass, gold, plastic, silver, etc).
Once the material has been broken down to a commodity level, the individual commodities are sent to our downstream partners who repurpose & refine them further
Recycled commodities typically require only a fraction of the energy vs producing or harvesting raw materials
