Comprenew is the leading electronic recycling organization in the Midwest. We serve both corporate and nonprofit organizations with our zero-landfill and zero-export certified electronic recycling. Comprenew has doubled in size in the past two years, recycling more than 5.3 million pounds of electronic waste in our Grand Rapids facility in 2013. Comprenew serves both corporations and the general public.
Once the electronics are refurbished and sold, 100% of proceeds generated go toward community service programs that focus on education and environmental initiatives. “I was blown away by [Comprenew’s] mission, customer service, passion and willingness of the staff to workwith me and my students. My students love Comprenew because they feel they are part of a solution with recycling, and they love the hands-on experience,” said Ann Paauwe, Teacher at the GVSU Eberhard Center.
