Sadoff shifts facility’s focus to electronics recycling

Fond du Lac, Wisconsin-based Sadoff Iron & Metal Co. has restructured its facility in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, in response to what it describes as the region’s growing market for electronics recycling and data destruction services.

As part of the location’s restructuring, the newly R2 (Responsible Recycling Practices) certified facility exclusively provides e-recycling and data destruction services and no longer purchases ferrous and nonferrous scrap metal. The company says it continues to purchase, receive and process scrap metal at its other locations in Wisconsin and Nebraska.

“This is really an opportunity to focus on the Sadoff E-Recycling & Data Destruction business activities in Oshkosh and the surrounding region,” Sadoff CEO Mark Lasky says. “The need for these services is growing in the Fox Valley and around the country. Our vision is to be the preferred choice for recycling in the Midwest.”

Sadoff E-Recycling & Data Destruction, a subsidiary of the family-owned Sadoff Iron & Metal Co., has been in business for five years. The company’s expansion into the electronics recycling field has been a “natural fit,” Lasky says.

“The decision is really more local than global,” he adds. “We see our opportunities expanding in our region for e-scrap and data destruction services.”

Sadoff says it offers drop-off containers for ferrous and nonferrous scrap metal at the Oshkosh facility.

Illinois ITAD company expands

Illinois-based Advanced Technology Recycling (ATR) has announced the opening of new facilities in Salt Lake City and Las Vegas that will meet customer needs and add processing and service capabilities along the West Coast, the company says.

The information technology asset disposition (ITAD) management and recycling company is relocating its Tooele, Utah, facility to a new 30,000-square-foot plant in Salt Lake City that is set to open in the spring of 2019.

Brodie Ehresman, national business development manager, says the Salt Lake City valley is home to many of the world’s leading tech companies.

“This has been an important region for us,” Ehresman says. “The Tooele operation provided additional material management capabilities for our ITAD customers.”

The Salt Lake City facility will operate as a primary logistics and processing hub, he adds.

The company says its Utah expansion comes two years after ATR acquired Electronic Recycling Solutions.

Salt Lake City Site Manager Isaac Dougal says, “The new location will make it more convenient for local customers and improves logistics throughout the West Coast.”

ATR’s newest Las Vegas facility is expected to open in early 2019.

“The Vegas facility will be the ninth location and third major expansion in just one year for ATR,” Ehresman says.

ATR began providing ITAD management services in 1992 with the founding of the company’s first computer store in Pontiac, Illinois. The company says it provides sustainable ITAD, secure destruction and recycling services to customers “that require a high degree of secure operational control and accountability for their retired technology assets.”

“These new locations were necessary to expand our logistics, managed IT services and ITAD programs throughout the U.S.,” Ehresman says. “Our customers have overwhelmingly asked for more logistics options to reduce costs and additional processing/service capabilities to the West Coast regions.”

ATR has eight R2 (Responsible Recycling Practices) certified facilities with a combined 400,000 square feet of processing space and 200 employees.
