Upcycling is the process of transforming waste or unwanted products into useful, and more valuable, products

Too often electronics are sent to end of life recycling when they still have a useful life.  Upcycling keeps electronics and parts up the life cycle until they are truly at the end of useful life.  Upcycling is offered at no-cost to our client partners and results in significant revenue returns. We have spent years researching and building sustainable upcycle solutions for off-lease, off-warranty, and retired owned equipment such as: ITAD, telecom, networking, LCD Monitors, , smartphones, tablets, printers, consumer electronics, medical equipment, surplus Inventory (not limited to electronics) and more.


Upcycling nearly doubles the environmental impact of recycling.  Example: One cellphone recycled saves 20 lbs. of carbon emissions whereas one cellphone Upcycled saves 38.4 pounds!  In the U.S. alone it has been reported that over 300,000 cellphones are thrown away each day. 


Our philosophy…Upcycle before you Recycle.


Upcycling can ease the burden of retired IT assets that many companies struggle to find affordable and environmentally sound disposal methods. Printers are a pain point for many businesses and costly to recycle.  More often than not, we are able to provide an upcycle solution.  Contact us with the make and models of your printers and we will respond within 2 business days if they qualify for upcycling.


LCD monitors are often sent to recycling. Through our program all LCD monitors that do not have shattered or cracked screens qualify for upcycling.


We have strength in every classification of electronic equipment and our upcycling process yields high residual returns for our client-partners and broadens their commitment to environmental stewardship..
