"Electronics are the fastest growing waste stream in the United States. Of particular concern, consumers are having trouble knowing how to properly recycle their personal electronics due to the risks and misinformation associated with disposal" stated Steve Skurnac, President, Sims Recycling Solutions, Americas. "The Sharks clearly understand the growing need to raise awareness of this problem and provide a solution to the San Jose community. It’s an honor for Sims Recycling Solutions to join with the organization as part of this initiative to demonstrate the responsible method for e-waste recycling, a process that protects both the environment and consumers’ personal data."
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency estimates that recycling one million laptops saves the equivalent of the electricity used in 3,657 US homes a year. Sims Recycling Solutions is a proud sponsor of the San Jose Sharks and the Sharks Green Territory webpage.Sims Recycling Solutions
