Overview of Global Environmental Services:
Global Environmental Services was established in 2008, and with just over two years’ experience, has grown to employ more than five times its original starting size. In the July/August issue of Storage and Destruction Business Magazine, GES was rated the seventh largest e-recycler by volume in North America. GES is a zero landfill, no exporting electronics recycler. GES and its downstream partners have been fully audited by a third party to ensure that materials are handled in an environmentally safe, ethically sound manner.
Global Environmental Services feels that when it comes to proper electronics recycling, awareness is critical. GES feels it is the responsibility of our corporation to reach out to the community and to educate residents on proper and ethical electronics recycling. As a result, GES participates in several awareness-raising tradeshows, programs, collection drives, and other initiatives to further solicit the ever-growing opportunities that are available to the community through the electronics recycling industry.
Global Environmental Services has received its ISO certifications in the areas of Environment (14001), Quality (9001), and Health and Safety (18001). GES is BAN e-Steward qualified and is currently pursuing accreditation in conjunction with an EPA R2 certification. An inherently “green” organization, GES adheres to the most rigorous environmentally responsible guidelines and is a member of several environmentally-focused organizations including a local voluntary program, KY Excel, in which GES has achieved the highest level of membership (Master Member). Further compliance is met by participating in the EPA WasteWise program. Both of these programs encourage businesses and individuals to reduce their water, waste, and energy use.
GES provides its services to a variety of customers, ranging from large volume OEMs to local residents. It has had an extremely satisfying track record in setting up programs and meeting the needs of our customers. GES has the necessary resources, manpower, and processes in place to meet and exceed the demands of its customers. One of the major advantages GES offers is that it is partnered with the largest logistics management company in North America to provide outstanding logistics management.
