Swimming Upstream with Arrow Value Recovery

The race is on to make electronics sustainable.

Here in Arrow’s Value Recovery business, we refer to our specialized recycling partners as our “downstream.” We take assets that cannot be repaired or refurbished or have no viable new life in their form as assets per se, and we break them down. First we harvest usable parts. Even if a laptop cannot be repaired, for example, chances are its power supply is just fine. From there, we separate materials into commodity types ready to send to our certified partners, which reclaim materials that can in turn become part of a supply chain to be used again in new products.

But even with our diligent pursuit to reclaim everything reclaimable, even refurbishment and recycling are no panaceas for the avalanche of electronic waste that continues to gain momentum even as we put our best practices in place. The ultimate solutions lie upstream.

And there are many important points upstream where we can begin to slow the volume and impacts of unwanted electronics and move toward more sustainable electronics and a true circular economy.
