- Cohen Recycling is investing $7 million and expanding its electronic waste recycling facility in its headquarters city of Middletown, OH. Cohen will add 50,000 square feet to bring the site to 110,000 square feet.
- A new processing system is expected to increase production to more than 20,000 pounds of e-waste per hour, allow Cohen to better reclaim raw materials for market consumption and decrease the amount of recyclables in the landfill. Jobs will be added, but the company has not yet said how many.
- Michelle Balz, assistant program manager at the Hamilton County Recycling and Solid Waste District, said, "Cohen's expansion strengthens the electronics recycling infrastructure in southwest Ohio to help us keep these valuable materials out of landfills.”
ER2 Electronic Responsible Recyclers this month announced it is adding a $1.8 million e-waste recycling facility in Memphis, TN.
In February, 3S International of Mount Pleasant, MI formed partnerships with IMS Electronics, Kuusakoski Recycling and Valley City Electronic Recycling. The partnerships will pave the way for 3S to open a new facility in southeast Michigan.
