|What's Green at Printer Parts Exchange?|
Reclaim, reprocess, salvage, save or convert…no matter how you slice it, recycling isn’t always easy; but it is an important part of Printer Parts Exchange’s business and daily routine. As a veteran to the printer parts marketplace, James Evans had recycling at the forefront of his mind when establishing his business nearly 3 years ago. Recently Printer Parts Exchange has partnered with a reputable recycling company that finds value and use in the nearly one TON of scrap produced monthly.
Like many companies, PPE takes in a large amount of used product with the intent of cleaning up, reworking, testing and redistributing it again as a refurbished printer part. In that process many items are not able to be reused and thus become scrap. Circuit boards, plastics and other metals in printers are among the common items that are usually tossed to the wayside. It would be easy to just throw them away and not worry about where they go. After all they are no longer worth anything to the company. As a green printer parts provider, that was not an option.
Thousands of parts are sorted in the warehouse and added to bins for collection on a monthly basis. With the aid of their partner, Universal Recycling Technologies, these sorted pallets are picked up each month and kept from prematurely filling landfills. URT’s processing centers have more than 40 years of combined experience in this field and today they recycle over 84 million pounds of e-waste per year! All products they collect stay in the United States and are never shipped off shore. An important fact because off shore recycling does not have the same high rules and regulations imposed by the United States thus becoming drastically less likely to contaminate our environment.
Anywhere you look there are staggering numbers pertaining to recycling. According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency, “each year Americans throw away 25,000,000,000 Styrofoam cups. Even 500 years from now, the foam coffee cup you used this morning will be sitting in a landfill.” They also mention that “Americans make more than 200 million tons of garbage each year, enough to fill Bush Stadium from top to bottom twice a day!” Small changes make large impacts! Printer Parts Exchange is working toward a greener environment and looks forward to sharing those moments with you for years to come!
