January 2011 was the busiest month on record for Capitol Asset Recycling, Inc. As the month of January 2011 came to a close, Capitol Asset Recycling’s total volume of electronics recycled soared to a monthly record, 232,011 lbs. This means that Capitol Asset Recycling has deflected over 200,000 lbs of electronic and hazardous waste from entering U.S. landfills, so far this year. The increased volume has also forced the Beltsville, MD recycling company to increase capacity, adding another 5,000 square feet to its Tucker Street sorting and processing operation. Chris Scott, the Company’s CEO attributes this increased growth to more and more businesses choosing Capitol Asset Recycling to process their unwanted and surplus electronics. “What we have seen this past month is a large increase in our commercial customer base. Our new customer targets have exceeded far beyond expectation. Our increased capacity is directly attributed to the growth of our commercial practice.”
It is not only commercial end users that are flocking to Capitol Asset Recycling, but other DC Region electronics recyclers are now finding that the honest pricing and certified recycling processes help maintain the integrity of the electronics recycling industry here in the nation’s capital.
Businesses are coming to the realization that choosing their recycler is now an Environment as well as an Economic decision. A certified recycler that PAYS businesses for their large scale electronic turnover is truly the way to go. “We have developed the ability to provide business with DC metro operations a solution to profitably dispose of their electronics. The blend of proper disposal and metal recovery combined with our expertise in the valuation of surplus usable electronics is a true value to our commercial customers,” said Zack Boorstein, company Vice President.
Capitol Asset Recycling’s disposal practice is not the only high growth business line that has seen major improvement this year. “Our GSA contract to physically destroy electronic media like hard drives, tapes and blackberry’s has also become a major driving force behind our business.” With contract recently won supplying this destruction service to the U.S. Navy, Department of Human and Health Services and US Peace Corps, as well as major financial institutions flocking to have their electronic media destroyed in various major cities around the country, Capitol Asset Recycling finds itself in a world of its own.
