Arrow Collects 154,000 Pounds Of Used Electronics At Mile High Electronics Recycling Event

Approximately 1,300 Colorado residents recycled more than 154,000 pounds of electronic devices on Sunday, Aug. 11, at the Mile High Electronics Recycling Event hosted by Arrow Electronics Inc. (NYSE: ARW) in partnership with Comcast, the City and County of Denver Public Works/Denver Recycles and Sports Authority Field at Mile High.

A wide range of electronics including computer hardware and peripherals, home office machines, mobile devices, television and gaming equipment and small appliances were collected. Denver Broncos cheerleaders and past players participated to meet fans and sign autographs.

“Arrow applauds Colorado residents for legally and securely disposing of electronics by participating in this event,” said Mark Majeske, president, global reverse logistics, of Englewood, Colo.,-based Arrow. “Arrow assures residents that all data will be removed from collected items and that electronics will be repurposed, donated to charity or recycled through the industry’s most socially and environmentally responsible methods.”

Arrow provides asset recovery, data sanitization, testing, recycling, remarketing, donation and resale services for a wide range of electronic equipment. It provides specialized services that enable business clients to uncover opportunities for greater efficiencies and value capture at the end of the IT product lifecycle. The company maintains strict responsible handling and recycling policies that ensure maximum reuse of electronics, adhere to all export laws and prevent hazardous materials from going to landfills or being incinerated.

“Comcast is proud to join Arrow, Denver Recycles and Sports Authority Field at Mile High in raising awareness for the importance of securely and legally disposing of old electronics through this event,” said Cindy Parsons, vice president of public relations for Comcast. “Given the role that Comcast has in enabling our customers with advanced entertainment and technology options, we recognize our responsibility in helping them responsibly recycle their old technology.”
