LIVERPOOL, N.Y., April 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Highlight Networks Inc. (OTCBB Symbol: HNET) is pleased to announce the opening of its electronics recycling facility in East Syracuse, New York. The 12,000 square foot operation is located in a modern industrial park and is situated on over an acre of land with room to expand. The Company is currently offering free recycling of electronics, computers, cell phones, servers, and other items, for local businesses and residents during normal business hours 9 to 5 Monday through Saturday. For convenience HNET also offers a 24 hr drop off container located at the front of the facility at 6 Adler Drive, East Syracuse, NY 13057.
The Company strives to keep electronics, metals, and recyclable goods out of landfills. We accept everything from single cell phones to entire truckloads of working and nonworking products. Items are then repurposed, reused, or recycled in accordance with the regulations set by the United States Environmental Protection Agency and by the various state departments of environmental regulation, and their guidelines. Individuals interested in recycling with Highlight Networks may also call 1-855-687-HNET (4638). We offer a free pick-up service to local clients, and can help arrange shipping on a national basis.
HNET CEO, Alfonso Knoll stated, "We are pleased to have this first facility operational, and plan to expand to other locations quickly. We are part of a solution to a very real environmental problem. It is estimated that Americans throw out more than 350,000 cell phones and 130,000 computers every day. Nationally only 16% of electronic waste is recycled. Globally, current estimates report that the worldwide number of PCs will be 2 billion by 2014. There is no reason for this material to wind up in landfills when it can be profitably reused or recycled."
Highlight Networks Inc. headquartered in New York, engages in recycling, refining, metals trading, and asset recovery, with a focus on precious metals refining from electronic waste. The Company currently operates one facility in NY that contracts nationally for refining and recycling projects. The Company has recently expanded its business to include the repurposing, resale, and recycling of networking and telecom hardware.Safe Harbor Statement - In addition to historical information, this press release may contain statements that constitute forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Securities Act of 1933 and the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended by the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995.
