Our new location will allow us to handle more electronic waste from large organizations nationwide, which amounts to a cleaner, more environmentally friendly future for everyone across the country.
Linton, IN (PRWEB) August 12, 2013
Green Geek Electronics Recycling, a company that provides businesses of all sizes with safe and environmentally responsible recycling for end-of-life electronics, is opening a new facility in Linton, Indiana and significantly expanding its range of service.
Founded just over a year and a half ago, Green Geek Electronics Recycling has rapidly expanded its services to thousands of individuals, businesses and schools throughout Indiana and Illinois, disposing of obsolete, damaged or unwanted electronics at no charge. The expansion will allow Green Geek to extend its services to more companies across the United States looking for an economical solution for recycling their e-waste.
“We are very proud of the success we’ve seen since we launched Green Geek, and this expansion is a reflection of that,” said Jake Thatcher, CEO. “Through the support of our clients and the Linton community, we have been fortunate to grow quite quickly. Our new location will allow us to handle more electronic waste from large organizations nationwide, which amounts to a cleaner, more environmentally friendly future for everyone across the country.”
Green Geek Electronics Recycling was established following the implementation of the Indiana Electronic Waste (E-Waste) Program in 2009. The law requires electronic waste to be handled by certified collectors and recyclers. Many other states have passed similar laws in recent years.
In addition to its recycling services, Green Geek provides secure data destruction for all storage devices processed in its facility. This allows businesses and individuals to dispose of old electronics confidently, without having to worry about misuse or unauthorized access to personal information. The company is committed to reuse wherever possible, but does so with a keen eye toward preserving the personal privacy of its donors.
“There are a lot of hazardous materials in modern-day electronics that just don’t belong in landfills,” said Thatcher. “By offering free recycling services to local businesses and individuals throughout the region, Green Geek is doing its part to preserve the environment from the harmful chemicals and heavy metals common in today’s electronic devices.”
Green Geek Electronics Recycling will hold a ribbon-cutting ceremony and open house at its new location on Tuesday, August 20 at 10 a.m. The new facility is located at 1251 SE 12th St. in Linton. To learn more about the company, a division of Node 1 Technology, visit http://greengeekrecycling.com.
