About BCS Recycling Specialists Asset Management

Mission Statement

BCS Recycling Specialists Asset Management will cultivate mutually value-driven partnerships with top-tier organizations and provide innovative, environmentally responsible end-of-life asset management and recycling services.

Why Partner With BCS?

Since 1988, BCS Recycling Specialists Asset Management (BCS) has been maximizing the value of unused surplus or end-of-life assets through effective recycling, reuse, or divestment. BCS operates on a nationwide scale and adheres to a ZERO Landfill Policy. We pride ourselves on diverting 100% of all electronic waste from landfills, and showing a commitment to corporate social responsibility through our Recycle 4 Charity programs. BCS is registered with the EPA on federal and state levels, and is focused to continually exceed industry standards, while creating value and protecting our counterpart's interests.

Electronic waste (e-waste) is a growing concern in waste management and the reverse logistics process. As the technology curve grows, older technology becomes less effective, inventory becomes obsolete, and waste increases. This universal waste is regulated by international environmental laws that enforce the proper disposal of electronic waste (CRT's, PWBs, CPUs, etc.). Choosing a responsible recycling partner has become more important than ever before, because in today's environmentally conscious marketplace businesses - not the recycler - are held liable for the proper disposal and record keeping of electronic waste.

Choosing BCS Recycling Specialists Asset Management will:

  1. Eliminate corporate environmental liability using auditable downstream channels.
  2. Maximize commodity values by utilizing BCS's Smart Sort and Separation™ (S3™) program.
  3. Protect proprietary interests with secured facilities and certified destruction services.
  4. Reduce costs with integrated turn-key reverse logistics solutions.
