MPC to build 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. The new facility will support a 100 percent zero-landfill operation.

The MPC processing facility is set to open in the first quarter of 2011. MPC will take in electronic material and IT-based assets and provide disposition and remarketing services, chain of custody and risk mitigation services while pursuing zero-landfill strategy development.

The Governor’s Action Team, a group of economic development professionals who work directly with businesses that are considering locating or expanding in Pennsylvania, 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.

MPC estimates that the facility will process 15 million pounds the first year.
