KruseCom Purchases Surplus Servers from a Recycling Company
PALM BEACH, FL-March 3, 2011-KruseCom, LLC, the company that Buys, Sells, and Maintains Enterprise IT, today purchased over 50 servers from a recycling company. KruseCom’s Remarketing Program promotes the responsible Re-Use of electronic waste.
Court Alton, Business Development Manager for KruseCom, commented, “Many individuals might be surprised to find that a large portion of our resale inventory comes from Recycling companies. The original equipment owners either give their equipment to recycling companies, or maybe even pay recycling companies to take away their e-waste. They are thinking “Recycle”. But there is more to conservation than just recycling. Even if they’ve never heard the term “Waste Hierarchy”, most Americans have become familiar with the three-arrow triangle that has become the symbol for recycling. The three arrows actually stand for Reduce, Re-Use, and Recycle. Recycling donors probably expect that their assets are being torn down to the component commodity level, separating plastics from metals, and then melting and refining the component metals. That makes sense for aluminum cans. But for electronics, recycling is the very end of the conservation process, and it may be more expensive than the original manufacturing process that created the asset. KruseCom is more likely to focus on the Re-Use aspect of the waste hierarchy. 98% of the assets we take in can be re-sold to someone else who can use the asset as it exists today. Companies could cut out the middleman, and share in the asset recovery dollars, by sending their assets directly to KruseCom first. But whatever path the assets take to get to our facility, we are grateful for the opportunity to Re-Use e-waste by putting it back into the market.”
