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.   Chat with one of our qualified Customer Service Representatives today in real time and learn how ATR can help your school district recycle responsibly without compromising confidential records.
