Rare Earth Metals Recycling

ATR has established Secure Destruction Services (SDS) comprised of compliance, legal, logistics and operational professionals with additional capabilities and ITAR security clearances that identify and manage vulnerabilities in existing processes.  ATR also provides Rare Earth Metals Recycling programs that can be individually tailored to the customers needs.  The SDS team inspects commercial streams to locate anomalies such as hidden storage devices frequently missed by traditional processors who allow coexistence with residential e Waste materials.  Additionally we offer a complete line of destruction devices that can be deployed and used at the customers facilities when transportation to our secured facilities isn’t sufficient.  We are GSA Schedule approved until 2019 and registered with the US State Department and Homeland Security for ITAR environmental services.

Assets are individually tracked by serial numbers, standardized and individually customized reports are made available in powerful web based tools scalable to facilitate your companies individual needs.  Customers can use the online tools to generate their own packing lists and define the PPE gear required for each facility.   Global reporting is readily available to the sustainability managers 24/7/365 and regional teams organize their own pickups and localized equipment dispositions individually by site. Our portal is internally developed, designed and supported by ATR staff making customization seamless when changes are required.

To protect our customers branding we have implemented a zero landfill policy and qualify each downstream vendor to ensure all recoverable commodities remain on US soil.  ATR is authorized by the US State Department and Homeland Security to provide SDS (Secure Destruction Services) to highly volatile waste streams for Aerospace, Defense and all federal agencies including the FBI, FAA and the US Border Patrol just to list a few.  These waste streams fall under the ITAR (International Traffic and Arms Regulations) and ATR’s compliance team has developed a comprehensive program outlined in our IMS documentation which is available upon request.

Additionally ATR offers secure web based video monitoring and logistics tracking sent right to your desktop in real time to ensure proper documentation of ITAR scrap materials.  ATR also has a GSA Schedule with standardized pricing until May of 2019 that allows us to offer these same services and discounts to law enforcement and state agencies that require additional security.

Since 2002, Advanced Technology Recycling (ATR) has built their foundation on making electronic recycling easy by offering these customizable solutions to clients.   Whether your security risk is in hard drives, prototype products/documents, or if you have a need for whole item destruction at your facility ATR has a diversified portfolio of competencies to choose from.  Additionally ATR can develop a comprehensive recovery program tailored to our customers individual needs.  US based Smelting capabilities allow our customers the ability to create specific recovery parameters for Rare Earth Metals and other military grade metals.   Forbes recently reported “What 60 Minutes got wrong” and placed a high value on these competencies.
