M&K Recovery Group increases e-cycling volume, expands customer base -Electronics recycler reports strong momentum

(NORTH ANDOVER, Mass.) - M&K Recovery Group (www.mkrecoverygroup.com), a precious metals refining and computer recycling specialist drawing on more than thirty years of global expertise, reported its successes in 2008. The company recycled and reclaimed 600,000 pounds of copper-related materials, including circuit boards, cable and brass, representing a 15% increase from 2007. By recycling these items, M&K and its customers have helped keep a host of hazardous or toxic materials out of U.S. landfills.

"The steady rise in companies seeing the need to ‘go green' in a fiscally prudent manner led to a renewed look at e-cycling and an increased demand for our services," said William Rockett, Vice President, M&K Recovery Group. "We built on that demand, expanding both our Boston area and Austin, TX facilities, to better meet the needs of a significantly expanded customer base."

Proper e-cycling benefits organizations from a number of perspectives, including:

  • Environmental: By using a responsible, carefully vetted e-cycler such as M&K Recovery Group, organizations are assured that none of their materials will wind up in landfills in the U.S. or abroad. Not only is this the right thing to do, it eliminates the danger of incurring EPA fines and a tarnished public image.
  • Data security: M&K Recovery Group provides a certificate of destruction for all electronic components that contain data; current recycling technology ensures complete destruction, not just "wiping," of hard drive discs and cell phone SIM cards.

 

M&K Recovery Group is a family business that helps global customers manage electronics and precious metal waste. Founded in 1995 by CEO Donald J. Decareau, M&K has built upon its legacy in refining and recycling by adding data destruction services for corporate and government clients. Operations performed on-site include precious metals refining, computer/electronics recycling, and NSA-approved data destruction. M&K's second processing depot in Austin, TX is outfitted for de-manufacturing and hard drive and tape media destruction. M&K's proprietary "Chain-of-Custody" asset management system and downstream reporting ensures environmental compliance and final disposition of all materials processed.
