About And Contact Us

Genesis Electronics Recycling was founded in 2009 in response to growing demand for responsible electronics recycling. Over the past 11 years, we have experienced explosive growth, beginning in a garage and expanding to a 65,000 sq. ft. state-of-the-art facility with a team of 43 highly trained personnel.

Since our inception, the end goal has been nothing less than a 100% Zero-Landfill policy. It was a true passion of the founders, and it shaped all operational procedures, set KPIs and drove strategic decisions.

A first significant milestone was the decision to obtain R2 (Responsible Recycling) certification and ISO 14001 and ISO 18001, which we did in 2012 and have maintained ever since with annual third-party audits. We are also proud members of NAID (National Association for Information Destruction) and ISRI (Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries).

That unwavering passion, total accountability, absolute business and personal integrity was what eventually transformed an unknown Chicago firm into a leading partnership choice of local and national mid-market corporations pursuing a Zero Landfill policy.

Today, Genesis Electronics Recycling serves more than 600 companies, representing major firms across a broad spectrum of industries. Last year alone we recycled more than 20 million pounds of e-waste, which was re-introduced back into the manufacturing stream instead of ending up in a landfill, saving energy and reducing pollution.

Next major milestone was reached, when Genesis Electronics Recycling partnered with one of our long standing Zero Landfill clients to take over and improve their established nationwide IT Asset Management, Secure Disposition and Value Recovery Program in one case. Brand Protection, Market Retrieval and EOL Management for a mid-market manufacturer, in another.

Result of that decision, followed by intense learning, strict implementation and collaboration with top industry leaders, became what is known as a Genesis Dome. IT Assets Life Cycle Management and Manufactured Products Life Cycle Management Platform organically grown from, and fully integrated with our 100% Zero Landfill foundation.

Genesis's fully integrated e-waste and products recycling platform continues to grow as a standalone Zero Landfill program, and holistically, with Genesis's IT Asset Management and Product Disposition Divisions as a leading one source solution suite for mid-market companies.

We've built an advanced Manufactured Product and IT Assets Security Division, working closely with our customers' technology and security personnel to ensure 100% safety in technology-retirement processes. We ensure that no current or retired process, product, or technology can compromise your company's success.

Genesis has a strong and growing presence in the IT assets lifecycle management space, with advanced customized solutions in value recovery, secure disposition, data destruction, and protection.

Genesis continues to expand our capabilities and the scope of our Manufactured Product Lifecycle Management Division, which offers leading customized solutions in brand protection, market retrieval, end-of-life management, and value recovery.
