(ATLANTA- April 2nd, 2015) In an effort to create a national footprint of like-minded IT asset and electronic waste recyclers, Impact Recyclers launched recently with operations in California, Colorado, Indiana, Georgia, Minnesota and New York. The formation of this network marks the largest of its kind; providing secure, eco-friendly services with a dedication to social impact. Members of the Impact Recyclers network hire people who are willing and able to work, but who have the hardest time getting a job, including people on the autism spectrum, who are homeless, who have been in the justice system, and/or with physical and/or mental disabilities.
“These businesses were already offering exceptional services and value to their clients,” said Mike Daniels Co-Founder of Impact Recyclers and VP/COO of Reworx in the Atlanta area. “By establishing this consolidated network, we can now provide businesses with the best solution to securely handle their IT and electronic waste needs across the country. The network model provides clients a centralized point of contact, improved efficiency and a significant social impact to help customers meet and exceed their Corporate Social Responsibility goals.”
Impact Recyclers collectively recycled 25 million pounds of electronics in 2014. All members are licensed, bonded, insured and meet R2 and/or e-Stewards certification requirements. Impact Recyclers provides businesses, governments, and individual consumers a comprehensive and secure way to eliminate electronic waste. Services include:
