Brooklyn Garage Facility to be Remoulded Into Major E-Waste Recycling Hub

SEATTLE (Scrap Monster): The Cleveland-headquartered information technology asset disposition (ITAD) firm MCPc Inc. has selected Old Brooklyn neighborhood as its new hub of electronics recycling services. According to media reports, the company has reached an agreement with Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority (RTA) to purchase its Brooklyn garage to be the center of its future technology operations.

The garage building has a total area of 117,000 square feet, housed in a site of approximately 5.8 acres. The RTA had put the building for sale almost a decade back, but with no buyers. As per reports, MCPc Inc. has agreed to pay $78,000 as the purchase price. The deal is likely to happen during early 2018. On top of the purchase price, the company plans to invest additional $500,000 into the garage facility towards landscaping and other enhancements in order to make it more attractive to the neighborhood. Also, nearly 20,000 square feet of the building facility will be rented out to the Foundry- a community rowing and sailing training center for Cleveland’s student-athletes.

Once fully operational, the MCPc Inc. recycling hub will offer approximately 100 entry level technology jobs. The company plans to provide employment to high school graduates from the surrounding neighborhoods, thereby providing them an opportunity to work in the IT sector. Although the facility will have a cyber security component attached to it, it will primarily focus on great entry-level positions.

Mike Trebilcock, MCPc Inc. chief executive officer noted that the company has been in search of an ideal location for almost a year. It has finally decided to choose the Brooklyn garage, mainly on account of its proximity to company’s other facilities. The huge size of the garage and its openness also turned the site into a compelling choice, he added.

MCPc Inc. has already forwarded an application for forgivable loan through a program that targets vacant and underused properties, which is currently under the consideration of the Economic Development Department.

The building was originally constructed in 1895, which was later expanded and renovated several times. As part of RTA’s decision to consolidate bus garages, operations were pulled out of the Brooklyn facility. Since then, the garage has been lying idle except for a brief period of nearly two years between 2012 and 2014 when it was leased out to an online automotive dealer.

Headquartered in Cleveland, MCPc Inc. offers data destruction and recycling services to companies functioning in various industries including healthcare, financial services, manufacturing, and education.
