Operationally functional, but physically damaged units are reviewed for useable parts and components. The identified components are set aside and the rest of the unit is combined with other un-remarketable product and forwarded to the recycling area, where it is is manually dismantled, separated into commodity classes (metal, plastic, glass) and each commodity is sent to downstream vendors for complete recycling and re-use.

Some equipment, for various reasons, can’t be remarketed or reconfigured for other re-use, but instead must be recycled as scrap. However, even though these units are being recycled, USMe’s scrap audit solution provides the same degree of complete and detailed information as for remarketed products, but at a reduced cost.
