SEATTLE (Waste Advantage): The acquisition of Full Circle Electronics marks the third recycling company acquired by Tide Rock Holdings, following American Recycling and Cal Micro Recycling. With the acquisition, Tide Rock dramatically scales its recycling business to include expertise in electronics decommissioning and certified data destruction.
Full Circle recently expanded its national footprint to become Tide Rock’s first electronics recycling provider that spans from coast-to-coast, with locations in California, Arizona, Colorado, Georgia, and Florida. The company has ITAR Registered (International Traffic in Arms Regulations) locations and R2 Certified facilities in its portfolio and is an expert at safely managing and processing waste, scrap or obsolete circuit boards.
“With tightening government regulations, increased awareness of proper disposal, quicker replacement of electronics goods and proper disposal of secure data, the electronics recycling industry is very attractive to Tide Rock. Full Circle Electronics has been growing – organically and through acquisitions – across the country and we look forward to building a national brand with a coast-to-coast footprint,” said Brooks Kincaid, President of Tide Rock Holdings.
Full Circle is a group of companies committed to the safe and secure processing of the rapidly growing electronic waste generated by today’s lifestyle. Full Circle Electronics collects, processes and returns usable equipment and commodities back into the market from electronic waste streams. They are certified to U.S. recycling and international quality standards.
Full Circle, led by CEO Tracey Haslam, has focused on providing certified and environmentally-conscious asset destruction of extremely sensitive data for over 20 years. Forging strong community and regional relationships, the companies have gained trust as an “environmental insurance policy” among fortune 100 companies serving the education, healthcare, and governmental sectors. “Our data destruction processes track, destroy, document and report for our customer’s peace of mind,” says Haslam. “We are proud of the trusted relationship we have with technology and service provider leaders in handling their most sensitive data and technology.”
