Zero Landfill Disposal
At Colt, 100% of each electronic asset entrusted to the firm is recycled. Absolutely nothing is left to be disposed of in a landfill. All recycling is processed domestically to ensure the highest level of security for your organization.
Colt will not export any electronics to developing countries and continents such as China, India and Africa.
Responsible, Specialized Recycling
Many forms of scrap electronics contain other types of electronics requiring alternative management for maximum recovery. Colt only works with certified approved downstream partners with specialties in the successful management of fluorescent lamps, batteries (all types), and mercury-containing electric components. Colt follows USDOT’s HMR, 49CFR, parts 171-180 to insure compliance with federal, state and local transportation regulations.
