Evolution E-Cycling: Behind-the-Scenes Tour of Electronics Recycling
August 26, 2015 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Have you ever wondered if recycling plants are really keeping waste out of the landfill? Learn more about the recycling process at GBA’s tour of Evolution E-Cycling, a local electronics recycling and data destruction company that walks the recycling talk.
Evolution E-Cycling is a small business in Pittsburgh’s Southside that processes three kinds of waste: electronics recyclables, electronic data that need to be safely destroyed, and universal waste. After networking over snacks and beverages with Pittsburgh professionals, our afternoon event will begin with a presentation on Evolution E-Cycling’s founding and development as a company that meets a demand for electronics recycling in Pittsburgh. We will receive an overview of the categories of waste that Evolution E-Cycling processes and the amount of waste diverted from landfills each year. We will then tour the recycling plant and see firsthand the streamlined recycling processes designed to limit energy consumption within the facilities.
1. Learn about the amount of waste diverted from landfills by Evolution E-Cycling each year.
2. Understand how a streamlined recycling process models energy efficiency best practices through reliable monitoring, similar to LEED O&M prerequisites.
3. Explore ways that organizations could include Evolution E-Cycling in their ongoing waste policies according to LEED O&M standards.
4. Brainstorm ways that organizations could utilize Evolution E-Cycling’s services to help reduce durable waste by 75%, according to the LEED O&M Solid Waste Management credit.
