Metech offers services to a wide market of large and small business, manufacturers, distributors, service providers, repair centers, governmental agencies, educational entities, and consumer groups, providing customized solutions to control product security, protect intellectual property, and mitigate environmental liability. Metech Recycling offers transport of materials for recycling, secure data destruction and certification, material tracking and reporting of computers, televisions, printers, fax, batteries, small appliances, telecom equipment, data center equipment, and most commercial electronic equipment, including biotech and medical devices, as well as tracking and certified destruction of obsolete products and excess inventory. It also partners with local community groups across the country to host electronics recycling collection events.
Metech Recycling prides itself in its investment in the more labor-intensive process of hand disassembling and separating electronic devices. This social commitment benefits communities through job creation. Its adherence to manual disassembly of electronics ensures both maximum material value and a high rate of “green” employment. Their employees sort, weigh, and disassemble electronic scrap into distinct material streams: precious metals, other metals, plastics, glass, circuit boards, and hazardous items (e.g. batteries). These commodities are sent to downstream partners for further recycling. Downstream vendors receiving hazardous e-waste are audited in person on a routine basis to determine initial and ongoing eligibility. Throughout its disassembly process, the company offers its clients transparent tracking and auditing for commodity recovery and recycling.
