Metech Recycling Approved as Covered Electronics Recycler (CER)
Worcester, MA – February 8, 2011 – Metech Recycling became one of the first companies approved as a covered electronic recycler (CER) by Connecticut’s Department of Environmental Protection. Connecticut law prohibits disposal of household electronic devices effective January 1, 2011. However, under the Connecticut e-waste law, residents may responsibly recycle their computers, printers, televisions and monitors without charge through CERs such as Metech Recycling. Manufacturers are financing transportation and recycling of these electronic devices.
“As this is a new program and you are one of the first companies to receive this approval, I offer my congratulations and look forward to working with Metech Recycling to make the recycling of covered electronic devices in Connecticut a success,” said Amey W. Marrella, Commissioner, Department of Environmental Protection.
Metech Recycling operates six recycling facilities in California, Utah, Colorado, Nebraska, North Carolina, and Massachusetts and is a national leader in the industry. Metech Recycling guarantees it does not landfill or export hazardous electronics waste material. All hard drives on systems that are recycled are securely shredded to ensure data security.
“Metech Recycling is honored to support Connecticut’s Recycling Law,” stated Chris Ryan, President of Metech Recycling. “Connecticut is leading the way in addressing the growing problem of household electronic waste.” To learn more about electronics devices covered through this program, visit http://www.ct.gov/dep/cwp/view.asp?A=2714&Q=397480.
