Acting Governor Kim Guadagno and Senator Bob Gordon Commend AnythingIT’s Commitment to Reducing Electronic Waste in New Jersey
DEP Permit Enables Expansion of E-Waste Recycling, Reuse, Resale and Reclamation Services
Fair Lawn, NJ (PRWEB) February 04, 2013
Acting Governor Kim Guadagno joined Senator Bob Gordon, County Executive Kathleen A. Donovan, Fair Lawn Mayor John Cosgrove, and other local officials for the ribbon-cutting of AnythingIT (OTCBB: ANYI), a leading information technology that specializes in the recycling, recovery and reuse of electronic equipment.
Although AnythingIT has been incorporated since 1992, the ribbon-cutting celebrates the additional services the company is now able to offer as a result of receiving a Class D (Universal Waste) Recycling Facility permit. These additional e-waste services include shredding materials onsite, de-manufacturing consumer electronics and accepting universal e-waste. Both the governor´s office and the Bergen County Economic Development Corporation were instrumental in getting the permit approved.
“AnythingIT´s decision to expand their services to include e-waste materials is yet another step toward reducing New Jersey´s reliance on landfills,” said Acting Governor Guadagno. “Removing obsolete electronics from landfills addresses the environmental hazard these products pose, while also spurring new business opportunities that create jobs and fuel our economy.”
Beyond providing jobs for Bergen County residents, AnythingIT makes a special effort to provide jobs for New Jersey´s veterans.
“We work with a group called Work Vessels for Veterans and made a huge commitment to hiring veterans,” said Bernstein. “They´re great employees and we always give preference to them as job candidates. Our business gives veterans the opportunity to learn a new trade and skill set in information technology. We actually donate laptops through Work Vessels for Veterans to returning vets to help them go back to school.”
“We have been working with AnythingIT over the past year to secure the first DEP Class D recycling permit in Bergen County, only the seventh permit of its kind in the state,” said Maggie Peters, director of the Bergen County Economic Development Corporation. “We are pleased to have such an innovative company within the county and will continue to be a partner and support in any way we can.”

Services provided by the company include: data scrubbing, shredding, inventory management, repair and remarketing of equipment and recycling of parts and materials.
