Arca Recycling Inc., a recycling service provider based in Minneapolis, has opened a new appliance recycling center in Pennsauken, New Jersey. The center will process appliances collected through new programs with multiple electric utilities in the state.
According to a news release from Arca, these new programs, launched in the second and third quarters of 2021, are the result of multiyear contracts signed by Arca Recycling to provide appliance recycling services as a part of utility energy efficiency programs. The new programs will result in approximately 17,000 refrigerators and freezers recycled annually, keeping more than 800 tons of metal, glass and plastic out of landfills and reducing emissions of ozone-depleting substances found in refrigerants and foam insulation.
Arca, a subsidiary of JanOne Inc., says the Pennsauken recycling center will support Environmental Protection Agency Responsible Appliance Disposal-compliant appliance recycling processes. The processes are designed to ensure all appliances are fully demanufactured, stripped of hazardous materials and disposed of in an environmentally responsible manner.
Arca Recycling has more than 90 utility-sponsored programs in operation.
