Sims Lifecycle Services opens Innovation Centre for IT and e-waste recovery
Sims Lifecycle Services (SLS), a global specialist in IT asset disposition (ITAD) and electronics recycling, will open the company's new Tampa Innovation Center, dedicated to increasing the redeployment, reuse and recyclability of retired IT equipment, including data center material.
According to SLS, the Innovation Center looks to build on the success of past projects, such as the HP plastics project, and accelerate the creation and adoption of new sustainability opportunities. Focusing on equipment from large data centers, the company continues to work with clients to help them meet their sustainability goals, returning better value to clients and reduce the carbon footprint of retired electronics.
"I am very pleased to work with clients on our shared sustainability efforts," stated Sean Magann, global vice president of sales and marketing for SLS. "We have put resources into creating cleaner commodity streams to increase recyclability, and with our new Innovation Center we can build on those efforts and help create products that are highly reusable, reducing everyone's carbon footprint."
SLS is a division of Sims Limited and a member of the World Business Council for Sustainable Development.
For C&D recyclers, waste haulers, demolition contractors and landfills, there is a growing opportunity to profit from rethinking processes. Although every operation is different, by streamlining the front end of the C&D operation processes with purpose-built technologies, recyclers can tap into new end markets, accommodate higher material volumes, stay ahead of regulatory restrictions, increase recovery rates and add commodity revenue, while decreasing labor and other costs.
