Maine has approved METech Recycling to help private and public sector entities comply with the state’s electronic waste recycling law.
The Worcester, Mass.-based METech Recycling was approved to be an e-waste consolidator for municipalities and manufacturers to meet the e-waste law of Maine.
The 2004 law established a shared responsibility policy for the recycling of end-of-life electronics generated from homes.
Approval as a consolidator is based on technical ability, financial capability and cost competitiveness.

METech said it doesn’t landfill or export any hazardous e-waste material. All hard drives on systems that are recycled are securely shredded to ensure data security.
