WeRecycle! LLCrecently was featured by the CBS Evening News during a segment focusing on the economy and green jobs. The company’s services include asset management, data destruction, recycling logistics services and compliance assistance services.

CBS Evening News reporter Anthony Mason toured WeRecycle! facilities in Mt. Vernon, N.Y., and Meriden, Ct., to see firsthand the role the company is playing in creating local, sustainable jobs through the responsible recycling and refurbishing of used electronics. 

"We've grown 50 percent over the last six months," Gina Chiarella, WeRecycle!'s executive vice president said in the report.  Referring to the positive impact that domestic recycling can have on our economy, Chiarella adds, "We're providing 'green collar' manufacturing jobs and we plan to do that all over the country."

WeRecycle! also notes that the company is committed to advancing globally accepted best practices for managing e-waste, in accordance with standards set forth by the Basel Action Network. As an ISO 14001:2004 & NAID certified business and an e-Stewards Founder, WeRecycle! says it affirms a promise to provide environmentally responsible recycling.

WeRecycle! is a member of the Northeast Recycling Council, National Association for Information Destruction and the Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries, among others.
