A new facility that will handle recycling Amazon’s e-waste is set to open next year in Pennsylvania, creating up to 500 new jobs.

The new facility will house re:Cycle Reverse Logistics, a stand-alone company within the Amazon corporate family. A third-party demanufacturing vendor will also occupy the space in Antrim Township, PA.

“We are excited to announce re:Cycle Reverse Logistics’ plans to build a new facility in Greencastle,” according to Lisa Anderson, a regional manager in project planning.

“We are repurposing a vacant industrial building into a state-of-the-art center for the safe and responsible reuse and refurbishment of electronic equipment used in data centers. We look forward to building a facility that creates good-paying jobs, new tax revenue and economic growth for the community for years to come.”

For Amazon, recycling electronics is one component of the company’s commitment to sustainability. Amazon plans to be carbon neutral by 2040. This multi-faceted approach considers both environmental and social impacts.

“We are working to scale and collaborate with others to reduce emissions, waste, and water consumption while innovating to optimize packaging and product performance. Through it all, we seek to act in ways that respect the human rights of people throughout our supply chain,” says the 2022 Amazon sustainability report “Building a Better Future Together.”
