MINNEAPOLIS, Aug. 26, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- ARCA Recycling, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Appliance Recycling Centers of America, Inc. (NASDAQ: ARCI), held a grand opening tour Wednesday, July 24, 2019 at their new Syracuse, NY recycling center. The center will process appliances collected through new programs with several of ARCA's local utility partners.
We anticipate that the Syracuse facility will recycle approximately 18,000 refrigerator and freezers annually, keeping over 1,300 tons of material out of landfills and reducing emissions of ozone-depleting substances found in refrigerants and foam insulation.
Those attending the tour observed demonstrations of ARCA Recycling's EPA Responsible Appliance Disposal (RAD) compliant appliance recycling processes designed to guarantee that all appliances are fully de-manufactured, stripped of hazardous materials, and disposed of in a safe and an environmentally responsible manner.
"We are excited to work with ARCA on our new upstate New York Refrigerator and Freezer Recycling Program," said Tom Baron, National Grid, Energy Efficiency Sr. Program Manager. "It's an easy way for our customers to safely and responsibly dispose of an outdated, inefficient appliance, save energy and reduce electricity costs, and earn some money too. It's good for our customers' wallets and it's good for the environment by keeping the old clunkers out of landfills."
ARCA Recycling is the largest implementer of appliance recycling programs in North America with over 90 utility programs in operation.
