Metech Recycling approved as 2012 e-waste consolidator

Metech Recycling received approval from the State of Maine to be an E-Waste Consolidator in accordance with Maine’s E-Waste Law.

The law, enacted in 2004, established a shared responsibility system for the recycling of end-of-life electronics generated by households in Maine.

Approval as a consolidator is based on technical ability, financial capacity, and competitive costs. As a BAN Certified e-Stewards Recycler, Metech Recycling meets or exceeds Maine’s requirements regarding environmentally sound management of e-waste. 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.
