Kentucky Awards E-Scrap Recycling Contract
Gov. Steve Beshear has announced that the Energy and Environment Cabinet has signed a contract that will result in the continued recycling of the millions of pounds of electronic scrap, or e-scrap, generated by government agencies and educational institutions in Kentucky each year.
The e-scrap contract with Creative Recycling Inc. of Tampa, Fla., which has a collection and distribution center in Louisville, will assure this large volume of scrap will be recycled in an environmentally sound manner, with effectively zero percent of the scrap going to landfills. It also ensures the proper sanitization of any data/information remaining on hard drives and in memory.
