According to a news release, the new service will allow financial institutions to recycle all obsolete ATM signage, furthering their own environmental-improvement programs.
"We are very pleased to offer this new service and to be able to help financial institutions further reduce their impact on the environment," said Al Tiley, Companion Systems' president. "Our extensive experience with metal, fiberglass, plastics and wood has helped us cultivate the knowledge and expertise necessary to effectively recycle ATM-environment products made of any material."
All ATM owners are open to take advantage of the new service, regardless of whether their ATM surrounds and enclosures were produced by Companion Systems. As branding surrounding an ATM is updated, ATM owners have an environmentally friendly way to dispose of their outdated signage.
"For the last 10 years, we have been making great strides in reducing the impact of our manufacturing production on the environment," said John Hansen, Companion Systems' chief operating officer."From eliminating harmful elements and reducing emissions to streamlining processes and minimizing waste, we are focused on continually finding ways to reduce our impact on the environment."
While the initial stages of this new recycling program cover the United States and Canada, Companion Systems is exploring ways to extend the program around the world.
