The FTK Group electronics recycling process is far from an easy task to explain. They custom tailor every program for each individual client, so that no two are alike. Their programs can vary from the total destruction of an item, to the complete refurbishment and reuse of the item. At FTK Group they create every program with one purpose in mind: keep the client happy and their business safe.

Listed below is a sample of one of their many electronics recycling processes. To learn more about setting up your own program contact an FTK Group sales representative here.

4. Recycling

Any materials designated for reuse, repurposing or refurbishing are separated, processed, warehoused and shipped according to their assigned destinations. All end-of-life and information-secure items are shredded into pieces no larger than 1.5" using FTK Group state-of-the-art destruction system. The resulting materials include steel, glass, plastic and precious metals that are then separated into processing bins for recycling. Nothing from FTK Group processes ever enters the nation's waste stream.
