Illegal shipments of electronic waste are in violation of the Basel Convention. We don't believe in negative campaigns against our competitors who have been accused of shipping overseas illegally. But we do feel it is important for our clients to know the risks associated with improper disposal: legally, morally and environmentally.
Our 100,000 square foot facility is located in the Grays Ferry section of Philadelphia and we are one of only a handful of DEP approved demanufacturing facilities.
Demanufacturing provides the highest level of reclamation of valuable metals and avoidance of landfilling. Although shredding has become more popular in the electronic recycling industry, the risk for contamination of materials is much higher and figures estimate that as much as 30% of the end product cannot be reclaimed. Shredding is popular due to the sheer volume of material that can be handled and generally produces "fluff", which is composed of dirt, glass, rubber and plastics, and is landfilled. Finally, shredding also produces airborne debris that can be harmful to employee's health.
Conversely, demanufacturing processes assure materials are separated to produce the highest environmental and economical value and concentrates exclusively on the recovery of raw materials for use in domestic manufacturing. This process greatly helps in the reduction of mining of raw materials.
eForce Compliance maintains zero commingling of materials and zero contamination. Our processes also produce a huge economic value: the creation of sustainable and local jobs.
eForce Compliance employs the service of certified local material processing companies, thus further adding to job creation in the local metro-Philadelphia economy.
