In response to the growing need for electronics recycling, Covanta has established a business line ECOvanta, that consists of specialists dedicated to safe, secure e-waste recycling. Our services keep pollutants out of landfills, reduce the effects of e-waste on the environment and prevent data from falling into the hands of those who might exploit it. We work with many states, counties and municipalities to collect and recycle their old electronics. Our electronics stewardship and expertise with security and risk management have been demonstrated time and again.
We manage more than 15 million pounds of e-waste each year, and recycle or reuse more than 95 percent of that e-waste in accordance with our Mission Statement, Electronic Waste Policy and Safety and Health Policy.
We can provide you with several transportation options to make collection easier. We work with our customers to ensure our processes are in accordance with their needs as well as all applicable laws and regulations.
We can also provide you with a Certificate of Recycling or periodic reports on the materials that are shipped and processed.
We also offer complete information technology asset disposition (ITAD) services for businesses, institutions, colleges and more. With higher value IT equipment, such as laptops and servers, we are able to provide refurbishment and resale opportunities while ensuring all hard drives have been shred or erased in accordance with industry standards.
The ECOvanta facility, located at 2209 S. 58th Street, Philadelphia, PA 19143, has obtained e-Stewards, OHSAS 18001, and ISO 14001 certifications. We also audit all of our downstream recycling partners to make sure they follow our standards for sustainable management of electronics.
We do not burn our e-waste. We make absolutely sure that the only items sent for thermal destruction are post-recycling non-hazardous materials that can’t be reclaimed or recycled in any other way. And the thermal destruction itself occurs only as part of our Energy-from-Waste (EfW) process.
With our years of experience, multiple certifications and proven capability to manage your entire e-waste stream, we are your best choice for powering today and protecting tomorrow.
