Commonwealth Computer Recycling Secures Growth Capital from Private Investors

Pennsylvania e-waste disposal and data destruction company will use new investments to scale its operations and services throughout the Mid-Atlantic region


Greensburg, PA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 02/23/2016 --Commonwealth Computer Recycling LLC, a respected electronics disposal, computer recycling and data destruction provider, has completed an initial fundraising round led by a group of Philadelphia-based angel investors.

Using these investments, Commonwealth will scale its IT asset disposition (ITAD), data destruction and e-waste recycling services throughout the Mid-Atlantic region and beyond.

"Our new investors' proven track records in scaling small businesses make them a logical fit for this next phase of our company," said Serdar Bankaci, CEO and founder of Commonwealth Computer Recycling. "Eastern Pennsylvania and Delaware are where we see short-term growth, and from there we will continue to grow our presence across the broader Mid-Atlantic region."

Founded in 2012 and based in Greensburg, Pennsylvania, Commonwealth operates a U.S. Department of Environmental Protection-permitted and R2 certified recycling facility. In late 2014, the company opened a transfer station in Aston, Pennsylvania, partnering with Elwyn Industries, and it will expand to northeastern Pennsylvania and Delaware as soon as possible.

"The strategic locations of both facilities will allow us to serve businesses from northern New Jersey down to Washington, D.C., and from Philadelphia to Cleveland," said Bankaci.

Over the past several years, Commonwealth has built a strong reputation as a safe, reliable and efficient e-waste recycler and data destruction provider for businesses and organizations in western Pennsylvania. In fact, Smart Business magazine recently named the company a Smart 50 Business, reflecting the sustainable and innovative approach of its services.
