Cleveland, Ohio. December 21, 2021. MCPc Inc., one of the country’s leading asset management companies providing sustainable technology services, including recycling and refurbishment in their Cleveland, Ohio and Grand Rapids, Michigan facilities, have achieved the coveted e-Stewards Certification. e-Stewards® Certified recyclers ensure the responsible and safe disposition of hazardous electronic wastes and sensitive private data through a rigorous standard of best practices. Importantly, e-Stewards Certified companies do not export hazardous electronic waste to developing countries.
“We chose to become e-Stewards certified because we believe in setting the highest bar for environmental protection and social accountability,” said Mike Trebilcock, Chairman and Founder of MCPc. “Investing in sustainability and ethics aligns with our core values and mission as an organization. It is our place in the industry.”
MCPc was recently named the Premier Supplier for 2021 by one of their clients Steelcase, a company that offers workspace architecture, furniture, and technology products and services in a sustainable manner. MCPc’s Secure Technology Asset Disposition Center performs secure and safe disposition services for electronics including asset management, testing, data destruction, testing, remarketing, and de-manufacturing. As part of their mission, the Disposition facility was built in the heart of Cleveland’s Old Brooklyn neighborhood with the intention to provide jobs, career pathways, and services to underserved communities. The STAD Asset Disposition program is a component of MCPc Inc’s lifecycle management services that offers a full suite of solutions for customers throughout the lifecycle of a device.
“E-waste, if badly managed, can harm the earth, human health and can release you or your business’ private data to unscrupulous actors,” said Prema George, e-Stewards Certification Director. “But if handled with care, it can be a driver for a more healthy and circular economy, eliminating unnecessary energy consumption and the harm that comes with incessant mining and production. We welcome MCPc as leaders in this important effort.”
According to the U.N., e-waste production is on track to reach 120 million tons per year by 2050. This problem impacts everyone. MCPc is committed to being a responsible technology asset disposition partner, meaning that clients can be assured that a minimum of their e-waste will end up in landfill, and any data on their retired devices will be 100% destroyed. Recycling will be safe and pollution-free.
