The average U.S. household owned 28 consumer electronics and generated about 3.14 million tons of e-waste in 2013 (according to an Environmental Protection Agency report). The United Nations reports that only 16 percent of the world’s e-waste in 2014 was recycled by government agencies or companies sanctioned by regulators. In Nashville, Mayor Megan Barry’s Livable Nashville Committee is coordinating comprehensive sustainability efforts.
“We are joining Nashville and global efforts to combat our planet’s e-waste epidemic,” said S3 CEO Rod McDaniel. “America Recycles Day is a fantastic opportunity to raise awareness about the increasing need to securely and responsibly dispose of electronic devices. Our team is excited to educate our community about sustainable living, and provide a safe environment for them to recycle.”
S3 Recycling Solutions (formerly named S3 Asset Management) routinely conducts community service activities to inform the local community about the benefits of recycling. In October it hosted 20 Metro Nashville high school students at its headquarters in conjunction with the Nashville Technology Council’s Tech Travel Day, and this summer it conducted a recycling workshop for summer camp students at Napier Community Center.
As a member of the National Association for Information Destruction, S3’s core business is to provide corporate entities with information technology asset disposition, data destruction, decommissioning, computer and electronic recycling, and medical asset disposition services.
