This Year, DISH Is Extending Its Program To Recycle With Reworx - An Electronics Recycling Program That Employs Individuals With Disabilities And Those Who Face Barriers To Traditional Hiring. (Photo: Business Wire)

DISH has partnered with Reworx, an electronics recycling program that employs individuals with disabilities and those who face barriers to traditional hiring. Reworx will recycle the pay-TV provider’s retired satellite receivers and related electronics in an extension of DISH’s existing sustainability operations that last year processed more than 26 million pounds of materials.

“Reworx not only furthers DISH’s sustainability endeavors by keeping nearly all received materials out of landfills, but it also yields another critical byproduct: opportunity,” said Jim LaRocque, DISH SVP of Service. “Reworx provides much-needed second chances by putting individuals to work. Steady employment can be a motivating force that prompts a sense of purpose, feelings of independence and, in many cases, helps staff rebuild their lives.”

“DISH looks to create efficiencies that allow the company to pass savings to its customers while keeping with its goal to reduce and eliminate waste,” said Mike Daniels, Reworx COO. “The responsible disposal of DISH electronics is a smart operation with a lasting environmental and, now, social impact. By recognizing this value, DISH advances its business objectives while forever impacting the lives of our people.”

Kelley Ferguson, shipping and receiving coordinator at Reworx, shares her perspective in a video on the partnership, saying Reworx provides opportunities from which she believes her daughter will one day benefit.

“This company has always had a special place in my heart,” said Ferguson. “I have a special needs daughter so I really believe in their cause. One day I feel sure my daughter will be in the program, so she’ll be able to conquer and be able to get out in the workforce.”
