What happens to the e-waste?
Digital Technology Partners is a minimal processing facility. After items go through our onsite breakdown, we forward their parts to the appropriate refineries, including Ecycle Atlanta and CHaRM (The Center for Hard for Recycle Materials).
Fun fact: 100% of the parts we handle make it to the appropriate refineries, and 0% end up in landfills.
How do you ensure a safe work environment?
As a minimal processing facility, we don’t work with hazardous materials onsite. We maintain a clean work environment, provide the proper Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), including gloves and eyewear, as well as training and supervision.
