Custom Solutions

At Mervis, our greatest success stories have grown out of the engagements with our large industrial partners and their one-of-a-kind needs. There is no challenge more motivating to our professional team than to scope out a complex situation and then respond with customized recycling programs for plastics, metals, electronics, fiber, and used machinery and equipment. In meeting the specific requests of our industrial partners, we have often built new facilities, expanded into new regions, and reached new heights in state-of-the-art processing.

Equipment Recycling

Protect Yourself and Protect the Environment

Now Mervis accepts household electronics for recycling at three convenient locations in Central Illinois. We offer this valuable service to the community at no charge.

To find out what materials we accept and do not accept, please see our list of accepted materials.

Recycling your electronics diverts harmful chemicals from landfills, which keeps our environment cleaner, and allows many materials to be reused, which conserves resources including energy. Our eco-friendly approach means recycled materials can be used to manufacture a wide range of new products.

Community electronics recycling events are usually very well attended, but can be inconvenient because they only occur occasionally. People can accumulate a closet full of devices waiting for the right day when they can get to an electronics recycling event near where they live.

We don’t just recycle – we recycle the right way! We meet the highest industry standards to ensure responsible recycling of electronic scrap materials.

Electronics can be recycled Monday through Friday at all three locations and Saturday morning at Mervis Recycling in Danville.

  • Computers, Servers and Network Devices
  • Monitors (LCD or Flat Screen only) we do not accept CRT Monitors
  • Printers (Inkjet, Laser and All-in-One)
  • TVs (Flat Screen and Projection only) we do not accept CRT TVs

Scrap Management

Mervis Industries can design and implement a corporate scrap management program for the recyclable products generated at your facility, maximizing revenues and minimizing costs.

The goals of such a program are to improve material segregation, to minimize waste by reclaiming and directing appropriate materials to the recycling stream, to improve in-plant collection, and to provide proper transportation equipment for the various recyclable products in an environmentally sound manner.

Scrap, Waste, and Recycling Audits

Mervis Industries can provide facility audit opportunities for both existing and potential customers to upgrade recycling materials, develop landfill diversion into recycling programs, and perform materials-flow analysis to help maximize your recyclable products.
