World's Most Powerful E-waste Recycling Equipment Installed in Northern California

Sims Recycling Solutions in Roseville Hosts Ribbon-Cutting Event to Introduce New Shredding Process

ROSEVILLE, CA--(Marketwired - September 17, 2013) - Sims Recycling Solutions, the global leader in electronics reuse and recycling has installed the world's most powerful electronic waste recycling equipment at the 200,000-square-foot electronics recycling facility located in Roseville, Calif. This modernized technology has an improved workflow process; and the equipment investment and engineering innovation will enable Sims to increase processing capacity by 36.4 million pounds per year -- the equivalent of almost two million computers.

Installation began in April 2013 and the facility recently began processing material using the newly installed equipment. Sims will host a private grand re-opening and ribbon-cutting event on-site at 8855 Washington Boulevard, in Roseville, CA 95678 on Thursday, September 26, 2013 from 9:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. to present this new equipment. This event will not be open to the public.

"This improved process enables our Roseville location to accept a wider variety of materials in higher volumes which will help better serve the needs of local municipalities, communities and businesses," stated Steve Skurnac, president of Sims Recycling Solutions. "Our engineering team analyzed our current equipment and its capabilities and determined that in the long-run it was necessary to upgrade so it could effectively handle the growing demand of material ready for recycling."

The equipment being replaced was originally installed in the mid-1990's and was one of the first electronic waste recycling machines built in the United States. Using lean six sigma methodologies this new process has maximum efficiencies and effectiveness that will contribute towards a more environmentally responsible and data secure workflow of material.
