Decommissioning pre-5G telecom tech for profit

Nationwide IT asset management company Advanced Technology Recycling (ATR) has announced a new program that it says will help telecommunications customers "transform e-Waste into valuable e-Commodities."

Nationwide IT asset management company Advanced Technology Recycling (ATR) has announced a new program that it says will help telecommunications customers "transform e-Waste into valuable e-Commodities" as the industry ramps up the 5G rollout.

According to a statement by the firm:

For a telling example of what is demanded to keep pace in the client-service space, we can look to a project recently undertaken by Advanced Technology Recycling (ATR), which operates multiple U.S. facilities and specializes in providing sales and services in the realm of IT asset disposition (ITAD).


"The strategy is to not just work harder, but to also work smarter," said Ken Ehresman, COO for ATR. "The e-Commodity program will empower telecommunications customers to play an active role in maximizing returns on retired IT assets, cabling, antenna, and various types of equipment that until recently reduced profitability."

The new case study reviews how ATR utilized their decades of recycling, and disposal expertise to help a growing telecommunications provider decommission and sell one million pounds of 2G and 3G equipment in the emerging e-Commodity marketplace.

The company says its case study reviews in detail "how these waste streams were collected, processed, and eventually resold as valuable eCommodities to reduce expenditures, and generate revenue."

The firm's statement further advises:

Telecommunications customers can increase their materials recoverable value by simply sorting items into specific categories, or maximize values by removing contaminants like bags, boxes, and segregating materials that have higher values from less valuable materials.

Nearly everything we use is manufactured from a commodity or sold as one. It's time to re-think recycling, think e-Commodities and become part of the solution, not the problem.
