FREE Recycling for Schools
ATR offers FREE R2 certified electronics recycling for Schools, we offer safe and secure recycling for Schools to ensure student, parent and staff records are properly destroyed. If you’re state doesn’t offer FREE Recycling for Schools ATR is here to help. Most OEM funded Take back programs don’t include schools and district officials often turn to less reputable solutions in an effort to save money. This was certainly the case in Iowa City when confidential records were found at a recycling center by a student. According to local news source, KCII, the Iowa Education board isn’t sure whether to take actions on the district officials yet but plans to investigate further.
Plummeting commodity prices and excessive volumes of CRT (Cathode Ray Tube) TV’s and CRT’s have forced many recycling companies into desperate measures to make ends meet. ATR has been following one such story out of Kentucky where a state approved vendor actually rented heavy equipment and created their own landfill out back. OEM’s like Lexmark who paid GES (Global Environmental Services) the now bankrupt recycler to collect electronics on their behalf are now voluntarily helping to clean up the abandoned mess. Recycling in today’s landscape requires a diversified service portfolio and ATR has you covered! ATR is ITAR (International Traffic in Arms) Registered, GSA Schedule approved until 2019, ISO:14001, OHSAS:18001 and of course R2:2013 Certified at all 6 Nationwide Facilities.
