MPC to open electronics recycling facility in Philadelphia

IT asset disposition company MPC will open an 111,000 square foot technology and electronics disposition processing facility in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The new facility will support a 100 percent zero-landfill operation.

MPC will take in electronic material and IT-based assets and provide disposition and remarketing services, chain of custody and risk mitigation services and zero-landfill strategy development.

A group of economic development professionals who work directly with businesses coordinated the project at the state level. Pennsylvania provided the company with a $230,000 funding offer through the Department of Community and Economic Development that included an opportunity grant, job training assistance and job creation tax credits.

MPC estimates that the facility will process 15 million pounds of material in its first year.
