Sims Recycling Solutions is the major strategic partner and provides all operational services for the EPSA arrangement. All e-waste received into our facilities is weighed, inbounded and then manually separated by the material type for easier processing. All focus materials (such as batteries, toner, cathode ray tube (CRT) type TV’s/ monitors, fluorescent tubes (mercury containing devices), and any non-conforming materials) will be removed as these materials need special handling before we process this material.
Once the e-waste has the focus materials removed, the e-waste then is placed into our shredder using mobile equipment (Bobcat / excavator), where various equipment (such as magnets, eddy currents, and metal finders) separate the e-waste into various streams of commodities (relatively pure streams of materials). All operators at our facility are suitably trained and skilled and are provided all of the personal protective equipment to work safely following our policies and procedures in an environment that has engineering controls and mechanisms in place to suitably process e-waste.
