has a zero landfill policy. Every piece of eWaste we process has a home. We have the relationships and partnerships with the right certified downstream vendors that will extend the sustainable life of an item. The fact that recent studies say up to 70 percent of the hazardous waste which is deposited in landfills is eWaste, there is room for improvement!
If you take a step back and think about the fact that over 50 million tons of eWaste is generated every year, with 10% growth year after year, this is a serious issue that needs our attention now. United States is the #1 producer of eWaste in the world. Americans throw around 10 million tons of electronics with less than 50% is recycled.
Our goal is to make sure every piece of hardware that hits our facility is used in the production for new technology hardware. We are reusing the hardware components needed for new devices while contributing to keep manufacturing production domestically.
