E-Waste Recycler Recleim Partnering with Pepsi on Equipment Recycling

Electronic waste recycler Recleim LLC is partnering with Pepsi Bottling Ventures (PBV) to dispose of Pepsi used equipment.

The agreement calls for Atlanta-based Recleim, which recycles appliances, to properly dispose of retired cold drink vending machines, fountain units, glass door merchandisers, and other parts and components. Recleim’s recycling technology allows it to recover 95 percent of PBV equipment by weight, the company said in a news release.

The Raleigh, N.C.-based PBV is the largest privately held Pepsi-Cola bottler in North America.

Under the agreement, Recleim will transport retired equipment from PBV’s central distribution center in Winston-Salem, N.C., to its flagship recycling facility in Graniteville, S.C., for processing. Recleim also will provide PBV with a certificate of destruction that guarantees also goods are recycled in a manner that meets or exceeds legislative and regulatory requirements.

“Recleim has the technology and process in place to maximize the amount of materials recovered from the items we retire,” Roy Taylor, marketing equipment manager at PBV. “Our objective is to work with a company that shares our passion for responsible stewardship of the environment.”

Recleim’s 110,000 square-foot recycling center can process more than 60 million pounds of equipment annually.
