Challenge(s) & Solution
With covid-19 safety regulations in place, the Greener Source team successfully executed the decommission earlier than projected. Given a two week timeframe, the job was completed in just six days, including the careful removal of data cabling located from workstations to server rooms. Due to careful extraction of items, over 75% of material was suitable for recycling, significantly reducing landfill accumulation.
“Knowing that we are able to find a second home for quality products that help organizations better themselves, and in turn, help the community, is a wonderful feeling that makes me proud to be part of this team.”
“It is such a wonderful feeling knowing that we are able to repurpose so many eligible items by breaking them down by material, which in turn, helps our community. It truly makes me proud to be part of this team.”
