Recycling News

Kansas City Business JournalA great profile story exclusively about Kory Bostwick and PC Disposal.

Companies such as Sprint Corp. and Time Warner pay to take old equipment off their hands. The fee seems small compared with fines that can be levied should environmental regulators trace old equipment in a landfill back to a company -- a process helped by serial numbers. Bostwick said fines can go as high as $10,000 a unit. That hurts. Especially if the EPA finds 1,000 computers and hands down a seven-figure fine, as Bostwick said he has heard was slapped on one Fortune 500 company. Regulators say states need more people like Bostwick, who provides a full-service outlet for companies that otherwise may have thrown old PCs in the trash bin.
