Environmentally Conscious Recycling

We care about the environment. Period. As we strive to be the best in our industry, we continually seek to improve our recycling process and empower our employees to become stewards for the environment.
Nathan Zack, President of Great Lakes Electronics started this company with an intention to dispose of old electronics in an environmentally responsible way. We have also routinely been recognized in the media for our environmentally conscious recycling efforts. However, refusing to remain complacent, we always strive for greater ways to protect the planet we love, especially through environmentally conscious recycling. To that end, we make sure our every operation follows the guidelines of the Occupation Safety and Health Administration and the Institute of Scrap Metal Recyclers. Every move we make is made in order to conserve our earth for future generations to come.
