Commitment To The Community

Recycling Technologies Helps the Community

We not only strive to provide the absolute best equipment recycling practices in our industry, Spectrum Ecycle’s commitment to community is strong. We believe a community that bands together and works together is stronger, kinder, and more productive, leading to greater achievements and joy. So how do we help make our community a better place?

By deliberately seeking local non-profits that are well respected, socially responsible, and serve the community through social services and employment services, we endeavor to make a difference. With our help (and yours) these incredible non-profits can employ the community, donate equipment, and create opportunities for individuals that they may not otherwise have.

Our Mission – More Than Recycling

Since 2011, our mission has become two-fold: to encourage responsible, secure commercial and residential electronics and technologies recycling, and to give back to the community in which we live and work.

Spectrum Ecycle’s vision is based on the belief that forward-thinking businesses, organizations, and individuals see the value in taking a proactive and environmentally-responsible approach to electronics recycling by partnering with Spectrum, and at the same time, helping those in need without even realizing it. We thank you and hope you’ll be inspired to contact us for your recycling needs and reach out to help those in need.
