John Lingelbach's Response to BAN's Press Release

https://resource-recycling.com/e-scrap/2017/09/14/opinion-trackers-ban-ignores-advice/

"The Basel Action Network (BAN) has issued a second report presenting information derived from its GPS tracking activities. Like the first report from a year ago, this report names electronics recyclers and leaves the casual reader presuming each named recycler is complicit in illegal exporting (part of an “export chain,” as BAN puts it).

GPS trackers can be an effective tool for identifying potential wrongdoing that warrants further investigation. However, GPS trackers alone do not provide sufficient information to indict a recycler in the court of public opinion for complicity in illegal exports.

BAN knows this. Yet it ignores its own advice, as noted in its September 2016 report: “The presence of any particular company being listed as part of an ‘export chain’ by itself is not an indicator of irresponsible behavior.”

Recycling Today: Houston-based company fully manages clients’ IT assets.

September 15, 2017

"CompuCycle, a Houston-based provider of end-of-life IT asset management services, has expanded its focus to work with local, national and global corporations for electronics services management.

The company says the purpose of this new approach is to fully manage IT assets for these organizations so that IT staff can devote their efforts to creating more efficient and streamlined internal processes, thus generating further revenue for businesses.

“CompuCycle will continue to uphold high standards across all aspects of our business as we develop programs and services designed to cater to the needs of our clients.”

As part of its new electronic services management, CompuCycle says it will offer the following services: IT asset inventory and deployment, on-site inventory and validation, on-site hard drive inventory and shredding, on-site mobile device inventory and data erasure, data center decommissioning, IT asset decommissioning and reinstallation, IT asset storage, lease return management and other services.

“CompuCycle was founded out of the need for secure, electronics recycling solutions,” says Kelly Hess, CEO of CompuCycle. “We remain committed to our mission of destroying our clients’ confidential data and ensuring customers’ product are managed and controlled professionally throughout the entire process, which is why we’ve decided to expand our services offering. This comprehensive approach of recycling and electronic services means IT departments can function more proficiently and businesses can become more profitable.”

Response to BAN Press Release

CompuCycle had no prior knowledge of the BAN press release on September 6, 2017.  We take issue with that release.  We are horrified to be listed by BAN as a “Scam Recycler.”  
 
CompuCycle did not export a printer from our Houston facility to Hong Kong.  What actually happened is as follows: CompuCycle delivered 15 skids of printers to our approved recycler in Fort Worth, Texas on July 13, 2017, and this is documented.  CompuCycle had previously performed significant due diligence on this approved recycler, and we have documentary proof that they routinely dispose of their dismantled printer materials in conformance with R2 standards.      

By virtue of this BAN press release, Jim Puckett and BAN have made an obvious attempt to improperly besmirch our business reputation and we intend to pursue this matter more fully.

We felt the need to issue this correction to set the record straight.  Our reputation in the community is of course very important to us.  CompuCycle has been in business for 21 years, and we will always strive to conduct our operations in an environmentally responsible manner.
