November 2022

NEW JERSEY—Back Thru The Future Technology Disposal has won the Sussex County Economic Development Environmental Leadership Award in November of 2022. The Environmental Leadership Award is given in recognition of an entity or individual who makes a conscious effort to develop or expand a business that complements and is consistent with the character and environment of Sussex County.

Back Thru The Future is a fully licensed electronics recycling company that adheres to strict rules regarding data security and environmental consciousness. Their clients, who are manufacturers, hospitals, financial institutions, and other organizations, are ensured that when they send equipment to Back Thru The Future for disposal, the hard drives will be destroyed and the equipment will be fully recycled.

Melanie J. Haga, CEO of Back Thru The Future, who received the award at the Sussex County Economic Development awards luncheon on November 4, 2022, said, “Our clients have always known that their electronics will be recycled responsibly but we are honored to be recognized for our hard work and dedication towards environmental excellence.”

The nomination for this award stated that in 2021, Back Thru The Future shred and recycled over 200,000 items. This allowed the metals and plastics to be reused, the precious metals in those devices were recovered, and those electronics were prevented from being thrown in our waste stream. Back Thru The Future also launched a free program for consumers that are looking to dispose of their hard drives in an environmentally responsible way. The company will accept up to five (5) hard drives per household and shred them at no charge.
