NewTech Corporate Electronics Recycling, Somerset, New Jersey, has joined The Electronics Reuse & Recycling Alliance (TERRA), headquartered in Nashville, Tennessee, to provide electronics recycling options for residents in Delaware, Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania.
NewTech provides end-of-life recycling solutions for corporations, municipalities and individuals in the New York area. By joining TERRA and its Done with IT mail-in recycling program, NewTech will help drive awareness about the negative environmental and health effects of electronic waste and provide access to sustainable recycling that includes secure data destruction services to more than 44.5 million residents in 129 counties from its R2 (Responsible Recycling Practices) certified recycling facility in Somerset, TERRA says in a news release.
With the addition of NewTech, Done with IT now serves more than 111 million people in 25 states, according to TERRA.
“As we rush to purchase new devices this holiday season, we need to take responsibility to mitigate the growing threat caused by improperly disposing of our old ones,” says Steven Napoli, president and CEO of TERRA. “With the volume of e-waste expected to more than double by 2050, we have to focus on driving materials to e-Stewards and R2-certified recyclers.”
“Unfortunately, not all electronics recycling is done in a verifiable and sustainable manner,” adds Jim Entwistle, president and owner at NewTech. “As a certified R2 recycler, NewTech adheres to rigorous standards and compliance audits to maximize the reuse and recycling of natural resources.”
Napoli says Done with IT is rapidly expanding and is seeking only certified recycling partners like NewTech to join.
