(Boston, Mass.—October 11, 2011) At an event today, in Worcester, Mass. EPA regional administrator  Curt Spalding, General Services regional administrator Bob Zarnetske, Congressman Jim McGovern and other state and local officials toured a  New England electronics recycler  as part of the Obama Administration’s “National Strategy for Electronics Stewardship” – a strategy for the responsible electronic design, purchasing, management and recycling that will promote the  sound electronics recycling (e-cycling)   and jobs of the future here at home.

The event today at METech Recycling Inc. exemplifies EPA’s partnership with industry aimed at promoting environmentally sound management of used electronics, which goes hand in hand with creating green jobs.  As a certified e-Steward, the company operates all its facilities in accordance with the most stringent certification standard in the electronics recycling industry. The company employs 221 people, and expects to hire an additional 80 workers over the next 6-9 months to meet increased production demands.

 “A growing electronic recycling industry has great environmental and economic potential–it makes addressing pollution profitable while also creating green jobs,” said Curt Spalding, regional administrator of EPA’s New England office. “We applaud industry leaders like METech Recycling. The participation of industry as well as government is essential to the success of this effort.”
