Recycling World Record Attempt begins

ATR shakes the Recycling World by attempting to set a new Guinness World Record for “Most Consumer Electronics Recycled in 1 week”  accross 6 facilities nationwide.  In an effort to raise awareness to the importance of recycling ATR created the “One Million Pound Challenge” in 2012 to offer a way for communities and businesses to work toward a common goal for Earth Day, April 22.  Each year the Earth Day initiatives have taken the recycling world by surprise as the company continues to “up the ante” and this year is no exception.  The goal is to exceed 1,046,000 Pounds in just 1 week, contact your local ATR facility for more details on how you can help.
