Oscar Winski Launches New Electronics Recycling Division
First in the Area to Offer a Reliable Data-Security Solution


LAFAYETTE, INDIANA—Greater Tippecanoe County residents and business owners eager to find a safe disposal solution for their unwanted stockpile of old electronic devices now have a convenient, certified local resource.

Lafayette’s Oscar Winski Company, a longstanding recycling champion in the region, has announced the opening of its new eRecycling division, located next to its Metals Recycling facilities on North 9th Street.

Oscar Winski eRecycling combines IDEM registration with the area’s first certified data destruction services to alleviate all of the most common anxieties holding people back from discarding their outdated computers, cell phones and other devices.

“Obviously, people have an aversion to throwing away electronics they perceive are not friendly to the environment,” explains Thom Davis, general manager of the new eRecycling division, “but the reality is, most are equally afraid of leaving their personal data out on the public curb, so to speak.”

Either way, Oscar Winski eRecycling solves the dilemma, giving the community the first secure e-waste disposal option from an environmental-recycling and identity-protection standpoint.

Apart from documented data destruction, convenient services include on-site pickup, data return for customers wanting to retrieve and keep the information on their old devices before the drives are destroyed, and scheduled e-recycling programs for business customers.

A complete listing of electronic items Oscar Winski eRecycling will accept is available at OscarWinski.com/eRecycling.

Oscar Winski eRecycling is a full-service electronics recycling facility, IDEM registered proper downstream material stewardship in e-waste disposal. From its location in Lafayette, Indiana, Oscar Winski eRecycling accepts virtually anything in the residential and business e-waste stream, including old computers, laptops, cell phones and more.

Oscar Winski eRecycling is a division of Oscar Winski Company, “the complete metals company,” which also operates its Oscar Winski Metals Recycling division—a full-service ferrous and nonferrous metals salvage facility—and its Lafayette Steel & Aluminum sales division—an ISO 9001-2000 certified steel and aluminum service center.
