USA – The largest waste services company in North America, Waste Management, has acquired Access Computer Products, a leading provider of electronics reverse logistics, remarketing, and recycling services.
Additionally, WM took over Mordell, LLC, a re-commerce partner responsible for refurbishing and selling used computer equipment obtained through Access and other third party suppliers.)
The acquisition of the Loveland, CO-based Access Computer Products will further strengthen Waste Management’s position as a leader in the recycling of e-waste.
Pat DeRueda, president of WM Recycle America: ‘This acquisition will expand Waste Management’s presence in the growing electronics recycling and re-commerce market and provide an additional high value service to our customers.’
Electronics recycling is a fast-growing industry that creates high-paying, green jobs. Twenty-six states have mandated e-waste recycling programs and consumers increasingly trade up to newer models of mobile phones, computers, and other consumer electronics.
‘Waste Management is committed to maximizing the value of the components in electronic materials as well as other materials it manages,’ adds DeRueda.
This acquisition complements WM’s other ecycling operations and will contribute to Waste Management’s sustainability goal of tripling the amount of material it recycles to 20 million tonnes by 2020.
