Our Story

For years, electronic waste has been accumulating at an alarming rate, posing significant environmental challenges for businesses and individuals alike. Recycling practices have been inconsistent, with many struggling to find reliable, secure and transparent solutions for their diverse recycling needs.

The growing concern over environmental impact and the need for responsible electronic waste management has led businesses and individuals to seek trustworthy recycling partners. Many have faced the frustration of limited recycling options or ineffective methods that not only fail to extract the full value from their materials, but also expose their businesses to significant data breaches, leading to compromised sensitive information, loss of customer trust, and potential legal liabilities.

This is where First America comes in – the nation’s leader in electronics and metals recycling. Under common ownership, First America and METech provide a total solution for the unique recycling needs of our customers, assuring their products and sensitive data are treated with the utmost compliance, care and security throughout the entire electronics recycling journey while maximizing value.
