Kraig Heitmann, E-waste Division Manager
He writes, "Personally, I love new projects. On this particular project I have been able to be involved in everything from research and planning for E-waste processing and compliance, to the remodeling of our new facility. Additionally, I have been appointed to a new position within LCRI as E-waste Manager and I am very eager to get started.
For Lewis Clark Recyclers this is an excellent growth opportunity in several ways. By expanding its' range of recycling services to include end-of-life electronics, LCRI now offers the LC valley and the surrounding region a service not before provided while extending additional job opportunities and a higher level of environmental sustainability.
For the community Lewis Clark Recyclers E-waste facility will impact our area on several levels. Due to the hazardous materials they contain, keeping end-of-life electronics out of the landfills is imperative. Customers will be able to responsibly dispose of surplus and end-of-life electronics whether consumer level, commercial or industrial. We also offer a service that is equally important; data destruction.
Whether it's a private individual avoiding identity theft, a commercial account protecting client information or trade secrets from industry, our customers can request various levels of data destruction to ensure that their information is purged in compliance with industry standards."
