AnythingIT, a Fair Lawn-based technology electronics recycler and e-waste handler, announced a milestone expansion of its recycling capabilities Tuesday at a ribbon cutting that was attended by Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno, County Executive Kathleen Donovan, Sen. Bob Gordon and multiple Fair Lawn council members.
The event celebrated AnythingIT's receipt of Bergen County's first Class D (Universal Waste) permit, which puts it among a select few electronic recyclers in the state and enables the company to expand services for existing customers by permitting them to shred materials onsite, de-manufacture consumer electronic and accept universal e-waste.
“E-waste is the fastest growing type of municipal solid waste in the country," AnythingIT CEO David Bernstein said in a statement. “We are committed to performing at the highest levels of eWaste processing. This permit validates our process.”
At Tuesday's council meeting, multiple Fair Lawn council members spoke glowingly of AnythingIT, which besides being a leading e-waste recylcer since 1992 also makes recruiting and hiring veterans a priority.
"AnythingIT is so important that both the Lieutenant Governor, Kim Guadagno, and the county executive attended that [ribbon cutting]," Deputy Mayor Ed Trawinski said Tuesday. "That, to me, is an indication of how important it is. The state needs this, and certainly we know, the county needs this."
