First America Expands into Recycling Solar Panels

Metals and electronics recycling company First America has announced its expansion into the alternative energy sector with the addition of recycling services for solar panels, electric and hybrid vehicles, and other renewable energy equipment. This move comes as part of the company’s efforts to promote a cleaner and greener future by reusing and recycling assets from these technologies.

Headquartered in Morris, Illinois, First America has established several partnerships to facilitate the processing of material from electric vehicles and other streams. The company’s CEO, James Li, stated in a press release that the integration of solar and electric vehicle technologies is crucial for creating a more sustainable future for generations to come. However, this can only be achieved through the responsible reuse and recycling of these assets.

First America aims to assist environmentally conscious customers in recovering additional monetary value by processing whole units and components, such as PV panels, for sale or reuse. Additionally, the company offers recycling services for these materials and others related to renewable energy equipment.

Currently, First America primarily processes devices sourced from various industries, including telecommunications, healthcare, manufacturing, financial, insurance, education, and government sectors. With its expansion into recycling solar panels and other alternative energy equipment, the company is poised to contribute significantly to the sustainable practices of these industries.

By partnering with First America, organizations and individuals can now ensure that their used solar panels and other renewable energy equipment are properly recycled or reused, reducing their environmental impact and promoting a more sustainable future.
