ProTek Recycling Inc. was founded in 2012 by engineering graduates from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute with the goal of developing a process for recycling all types of electronics from the ground-up. And most importantly, a process that could be sustainable while still being cost-effective.
We believe very strongly that the decision to properly recycle electronics shouldn’t be limited by cost. With this in mind, we strive to maintain minimal to zero-cost recycling and pickups for our clients. All our services are also designed to be simple and efficient allowing our customers to focus on their core business without having to worry about the logistics of their waste stream.
In addition we have years of experience in the industry and, with over 400 clients served in the Manhattan area, we understand the unique recycling challenges experienced by NYC based businesses.
We have experience working with companies and organizations of all different industries and sizes and in each case we work with the company to develop a custom solution for their needs.
ProTek Recycling is a New York State registered electronic waste collection and recycling firm (DEC # 00838). We also select our downstream vendors with great care, ensuring that any end-of-life material that could potentially be hazardous is given only to R2 or eStewards certified companies. In addition we also have a strict zero-landfill policy for any electronic material and even have recycling programs for non-electronic materials such as cardboard and plastics.
ProTek Recycling also has strong connections with some of the early pioneers in the computing industry and as a result has long maintained a museum of notable classic systems and computing firsts. In 2014 we expanded to start providing these machines as well as all other types of electronics for rentals in film, photo, and stage productions; helping to preserve computing industry by introducing it to a new generation through popular media.
If you have any questions, please let us know. We would be happy to discuss your individual corporate needs to develop a custom solution for all your electronic waste recycling needs.
