Eco International opens second New York e-cycling facility .

April 11, 2012 - 23:47 GMT

 

A New York electronics recycler has opened its second location less than two weeks after receiving approval for the site.

 

The Binghamton facility will be used as a redemption center and transfer site for recyclables, which will be shipped to the Vestal location for dismantling.

 

An employee at the recycler told AMM that the company expects to recycle almost twice its 2011 volume this year now that the state has a mandated electronics recycling law.

 

The Electronic Equipment Recycling and Reuse Act went into effect on April 1, 2011, and has resulted in a boon in the industry. Whenever a consumer buys a new piece of electronic equipment, the manufacturer is required to accept the discarded item, such as televisions, computers, etc.

 

Since its 2000 start-up, Eco International has recycled more than 200 million pounds of electronic waste.
