The EPA defines Sustainability as “Everything that we need for our survival and well-being depends, either directly or indirectly, on our natural environment. Sustainability creates and maintains the conditions under which humans and nature can exist in productive harmony, that permit fulfilling the social, economic and other requirements of present and future generations.”
M&K is committed to our clients, employees, and the environment. We have a responsibility to the communities in which we live and operate, and to the planet on which we live.
Corporate Sustainability and “Green Initiatives” are growing in popularity within corporate America. The goal in implementing these programs is to protect the environment by furthering sustainable practices within organizations and communities. M&K’s respect for the environment is found in every action we undertake at our facilities, from energy reduction to the recycling of lamps, paper, cardboard, foam, pallets, and shrink-wrap. All recyclable material generated from our processes is recycled or reused in an effort to protect the environment and to optimize resources.
M&K partners with clients who are seeking to attain a 100% “Green,” compliant recycling program. Waste Stream Management solutions include collection and recycling of IT equipment, electronics production scrap, fluorescent lamps, batteries, toner cartridges, paper, plastics, and cardboard.
M&K processes materials in accordance with R2 Hierarchy Guidelines for Responsible Management Strategies that include the “Reuse, Recovery, Dispose” philosophy. Extensive pre-screening and inspection processes allow us to evaluate all products in order to generate the best asset recovery value and proper re-use of that product. Our objective is that “whole” equipment and functional components are re-used for the manufacturer’s intended purpose. This process involves testing and refurbishing units as well as disassembly for component reuse. Non-functional and end-of-life equipment is disassembled and commodities are segregated for electronics recycling. Universal wastes are separated for recycling by certified processors. Non-ferrous and ferrous metals, plastics, and leaded-glass are “re-used” through proper recycling by downstream partners.
