Intercon Solutions is an electronics recycling company with no tolerance for wastefulness or irresponsibility. Through techniques that have taken years to develop, we've created a way to turn end-of-life electronic machines, scrap and equipment into the materials from which great things are made. Our ISO 9001, 14001 and OHSAS 18001 certified de-manufacturing processes take place in a two hundred fifty thousand + square foot facility in Chicago Heights, IL. To broaden our reach for our customers, we also operate facilities in Concord, NC, Dallas, TX, Huntsville, AL, Sacramento, CA, St. Louis, MO, Tampa, FL, Toronto, ON, Vancouver, BC.

Because we can. Because we want to. And, most importantly, because it has to be done. We recognized a growing problem, wanted to be part of the Solution and developed a company around this desire.

As is becoming well known, people could build actual mountains or skyscrapers (granted, they'd be pretty weird-looking) out of the electronics that are currently hitting our waste streams and we're confident that no one wants to see a 'scrap-scraper' anytime soon. Aesthetics aside, the issue is really that most pieces of electronic equipment contain materials that can be damaging to life and the environment. It is probably this reason that has motivated many decision-making individuals to attempt to prevent this material from being handled in such a way that could lead to negative consequences for people and the planet.

We do what we do for our customers, whomever they may be, so that they have a partner that they can depend on to solve their e-waste problems.

We consider ourselves to be great problem solvers. Most clients of ours have similar problems that almost always fall into the category of having out-of-use electronic equipment, sometimes mountains of it, usually in warehouses nationwide and sometimes in offices, closets and desk drawers. Intercon Solutions works toward solving e-waste problems by developing electronics recycling programs to fit the requirements of each one of our valued clients.

We completely recycle all types of electronics equipment and material, including all computers (mainframes, monitors, terminals, CPU's), printers, fax machines, modems, bridges, hubs, copy machines, consumer electronics (radios, CD players, dvd players, clocks, calculators, telephones, cellular phones), components and various other types of plastic and metal. Each piece of equipment and/or material is tracked, disassembled by hand, carefully separated and eventually utilized as feedstock for various raw material extraction processes (including smelting and refining). These raw materials are in turn used to produce new metal and plastic products. As our environmental policy includes zero landfill tolerance, all equipment, including all hazardous substances will be processed according to these ISO 9001, 14001 and OHSAS 18001 certified methods. It is Intercon policy for us to know exactly what happens to whatever we take in. The processing facilities that we utilize are located within the continental United States where we can monitor how your material is being handled and the compliance of the facilities' processes to state and federal regulations.

It is important for you to know what happens to your material from the time it leaves you to the absolute end of the line and this is why we're so focused on employing specialized material tracking methods that generally include photography of equipment upon arrival, labeling, weighing, and keeping inventory. We can also provide custom Internet-based programs that provide accurate and detailed tracking of product and facilitate communications between different facilities. All materials are handled at our Chicago, IL facility and loads can be handled separately so they can be monitored throughout the entire recycling process. Our entire facility is monitored by Department of Defense approved closed-circuit video surveillance. Certificates of Destruction (Recycling) are always provided upon completion of the recycling process.
