Material Separation and Recovery
But let’s be realistic. A good percentage of the equipment we receive cannot and should not be returned to operation due to its age or condition. Again, we follow R2:2013 guidelines in the proper recycling, separation and recovery of the complex materials that make up electronics.
Much of this is performed manually by our skilled work force. Here, we take a second look at reuse by removing potentially usable parts for further testing and resell. The bare metal cases, plastic covers, printed circuit boards and other materials are separated for further processing. The goal? To process the material for its commodity content. The recovered commodities can be reused again in the manufacture of new parts and products. The result is that very little waste ends up in our landfills.
