Kennedy explains that Premier Surplus has created their own “recipes” for running batches of materials such as printers, set-top boxes or automation equipment. AUTOSORT® FINES identifies the material to be removed from the stream to create a good, clean final product. “The machine’s customer interface stores different sorting programs and allows the operator to quickly switch between programs to match the material stream,” explains Thurston.
A year and a half into operating the new circuit, there is no second guessing that Premier Surplus made the right equipment selection for the automated circuit. “We definitely made the right choice with TOMRA. I really have to give thanks and praises to everyone that was involved in this project,” says Kennedy. “The demand for properly recycling e-waste is there. That is why the Premier Surplus team stands ready to do our part in keeping material out of the landfill and, at the same time, protecting our customers’ data and reputation.”
