Sims Buys E-Waste Recycling Firm E-Structors

Sims Recycling Solutions (SRS) has purchased electronic waste recycling firm E-Structors Inc. for an undisclosed amount.

The Chicago-based Sims Recycling said in a news release it has acquired the assets of the Elkridge, Md.-based E-Structors, one of the largest providers of e-waste recycling and document destruction services in the Maryland, Virginia and Washington, D.C., area.

E-Structors’ clients include educational and financial institutions, government agencies, health care systems and medical centers, private and public corporations, and national electronics retailers. The company’s 160,000-square-foot facility processes more than 22 million pounds of e-waste material annually.

“With the acquisition of E-Structors, SRS continues to increase the size of its U.S. footprint,” said Steve Skurnac, president of SRS, Americas. “Having a location near Washington, D.C., will allow SRS to not only build on the great partnerships we have with federal agencies but more efficiently service our existing government agreements, including our five-year Department of Defense contract.”

Sims Recycling is a subsidiary of Sydney-based Sims Metal Management Ltd.
