Sims Recycling Solutions, located in Roseville, recently installed the "world’s most powerful electronic waste recycling equipment" at its facility. Sims detailed the improvements in a press release.
This modernized technology has an improved workflow process; and the equipment investment and engineering innovation will enable Sims to increase processing capacity by 36.4 million pounds per year -- the equivalent of almost two million computers.
Installation of the equipment began in April. Sims hosted a grand re-opening celebration today.
"This improved process enables our Roseville location to accept a wider variety of materials in higher volumes which will help better serve the needs of local municipalities, communities and businesses," stated Steve Skurnac, president of Sims Recycling Solutions. "Our engineering team analyzed our current equipment and its capabilities and determined that in the long-run it was necessary to upgrade so it could effectively handle the growing demand of material ready for recycling."
CAW's Executive Director Mark Murray attended the celebration as a featured speaker.
California's Electronic Waste Recycling Act leads the nation in curbing illegal electronic waste export by only allowing recyclers to be reimbursed for covered electronics that are recycled in the state. This is also great for California’s economy, as it creates a local market and increases green jobs.
