New Osage City plant ready to recycle the world’s excess electronics
Well-wishers, friends and staff gathered in front of Asset Lifecycle’s Osage City facility Thursday to cut the ribbon for the grand opening of the new computer and office equipment reclamation plant.
Osage City’s newest industry was welcomed by the Osage County community Thursday as Asset LifeCycle officially announced its recycling and reclamation plant is now staffed and in operation. A ribbon cutting ceremony included Osage City Chamber of Commerce members, Osage County Economic Development members, county officials, local business owners, and the company’s staff and management team.
The company purchased the 10,000 sq. ft. former KanBuild building in October, and began seeking employees to work in the plant in January. During Thursday’s grand opening, company officials said 25 key positions had been filled in the plant, with at least five more positions to be filled to maintain the current operations. Tours were given of the reclamation and materials handling line, which had been in operation earlier in the day, allowing visitors to see raw products obtained from the reclamation process.
The company’s host of services includes security, storage and destruction of electronic media or data, and the reuse and remarketing of computer or other equipment.
The reclamation plant is located at 126 Nichols Road, Osage City.
