Unisys Responsibly Disposed of More Than 1.6 Million Pounds of IT and Electronic Equipment Last Year

WEST CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwired - October 13, 2015) - Sims Recycling Solutions, a leading provider of global IT asset disposition (ITAD) services, recently presented an award to Unisys Corporation to acknowledge Unisys' efforts to securely and responsibly dispose of IT and electronic equipment during the 2014 calendar year.
