Total Recycling Accountability
TechnoCycle, Houston, is a Texas based e-Stewards electronic waste recycler (we are currently in the process of certifying our San Antonio facility) providing recycling solutions and services to businesses and corporations in order to simplify the disposal of end-of-life technology.
Our process is designed to mitigate the environmental impact of recycling electronics by following a “reuse and recycle” policy that is guided by the stringent e-Stewards electronic recycling guidelines set forth by the Basel Action Network (www.ban.org). These guidelines ensure that data is properly erased and that all electronic materials we handle stay out of domestic and international landfills.
- Manufacturing items takes lots of energy and environmental resources, so reusing them beyond their planned obsolescence to their true functional end of life makes good environmental sense. All materials received at TechnoCycle are first considered for reuse before recycling.
- Items that cannot be reused are recycled by breaking them down into commodities that are categorized in a controlled, secure workspace, and then sent to appropriate down-stream processors. These commodities are recycled and used to produce new products which help reduce the need for consuming additional environmental resources.
- 100% of the electronic materials we receive are reused or recycled into commodities that will later be sent to a specialty processor. We ensure that materials are responsibly managed through our own in-house processing center or within our qualified nationwide partner facilities.
