eCommodity Program Designed to Combat Supply Chain Shortages and Rising Costs

November 4, 2021, Pontiac, IL, Advanced Technology Recycling (ATRecycle) announces a new program that will help customers transform eWaste into valuable eCommodities as prices and material shortages dramatically increase.

2021 has certainly presented some unexpected challenges as supply chain shortages increase, and the available staffing needed to resolve these issues decreases.

“The strategy is to not just work harder, but to also work smarter.” said Ken Ehresman, COO for ATR, a nationwide IT Asset Management company.  “The eCommodity program will empower customers to play an active role in maximizing returns on retired IT assets, manufacturing scrap, and eWaste that until recently reduced profitability.”

ecommodity sellerseCommodities are the reusable materials harvested from outdated electronics, computers, wire, and all types of technology assets that have reached the end of their life cycles.  Recycling companies use a wide range of recovery technologies to shred, sort and prepare these materials for reuse.

“An eCommodity, such as computer RAM or processor chips (CPU)  can be worth $100 or more per pound”.  “ATR has established a marketplace where customers can use simple sorting methodologies to transform their traditional E-waste into sellable eCommodities.  Once graded, they’ll be listed on the exchange and sold to pre-qualified buyers that meet specific material buying qualifications.” continued Ehresman

Waste generating customers can increase their materials recoverable value by simply sorting items into specific categories, or maximize values by removing contaminants like bags, boxes, and segregating materials that have higher values from less valuable materials.   Interested eCommodity and Wholesale buyers can sign up at

Nearly everything we use is manufactured from a commodity or sold as one.  It’s time to re-think recycling, think eCommodities and become part of the solution, not the problem.
