Logistic Recycling Inc. (LRI), a recycling company based in Green Bay, Wisconsin, recently launched a specialized electronic scrap recycling service that enables commercial, governmental and industrial establishments to hand over their e-scrap for recycling safely. The company says the service can help various establishments avoid breaching hazardous and universal waste compliance rules.
According to a news release from the company, computer components, such as monitors, keyboards and central processing units, contain toxic metals and are classified as hazardous waste by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Their disposal in landfills violates hazardous waste compliance rules and incurs heavy fines because of associated liabilities. With the launch, the company says it aims to provide a safe and legally compliant way for customers to get rid of obsolete electronic parts while saving time, cost and resources.
LRI says it ensures that every bit of e-scrap it collects from customers is fully recycled with no part getting landfilled. This allows institutions that enlist the service to remain clear of any penalty or liability related to improper disposal of hazardous waste. LRI says it runs regular pickup routes throughout the Midwest region from its location in Green Bay. Establishments that want to enlist the service can call the company, make a request and schedule a pickup on the next visit. For pickups outside its regular service area, LRI employs commercial common carrier transporters. It runs straight trucks and semitractor trailers, so no amount is too large for a pickup.
“At Logistics Recycling, we make sustainability and compliance simple to save our customers time, money and resources,” says Brent Dubois, president of LRI. “We collect, manage and dispose of regulated waste streams cost-effectively and efficiently so our customers can focus on running their business rather than worrying about their waste.”
LRI says it provides a certification of recycling to all its customers for validation that their electronic scrap has been properly handled and fully recycled. It also provides additional paperwork on demand for data destruction or asset tracking.
