Decommissioning 3G technology for profit, ATR Telecommunications case study sheds light on electronics recovery options that pay for what others don’t

BIRMINGHAM, Alabama., January 19, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Advanced Technology Recycling (ATR) announces a new program that will help telecom customers turn e-waste into valuable electronics as the industry accelerates the deployment of 5G.

For a telling example of what is required to keep pace in the customer service space, we can turn to a project recently undertaken by Advanced Technology Recycling (ATR), which operates several facilities in the United States and specializes in providing IT Asset Disposition (ITAD) sales and services.

“The strategy is not only to work harder, but also to work smarter.” noted Ken EhresmanCOO for ATR, a national IT asset management company. “The e-Commodity program will enable telecommunications customers to take an active role in maximizing returns from retired IT assets, cabling, antenna and various types of equipment that until recently reduced profitability. .”

In this case study we’ll see how Advanced Technology Recycling (ATR) used decades of recycling and disposal expertise to help a growing telecommunications provider decommission and sell a million pounds of 2G and 3G equipment in an emerging electronics market. We’ll take a closer look at how these waste streams were collected, processed, and ultimately resold as valuable electronics to reduce expenses and generate revenue.

Telecom customers can increase the recoverable value of their materials by simply sorting items into specific categories, or maximize values ​​by removing contaminants such as bags, boxes, and separating materials that have higher values ​​from materials less valuable.

Almost everything we use is made from a commodity or sold as such. It’s time to rethink recycling, think e-Commodities and be part of the solution, not the problem.
