Hempfield-based e-waste recycler CyberCrunch is offering a 25% discount to clients of Arrow Electronics, which is closing its IT asset disposition business by the end of the year.

Centennial, Colo.-based Arrow Electronics announced on Thursday that it was closing its ITAD business, known as Arrow Sustainable Technology Solutions, because of a market downturn. Its nine ITAD locations will stop accepting materials for recycling and disposal by Aug. 5.

CyberCrunch President Serdar Bankaci said the company, founded in 2012, will welcome former Arrow customers by offering a 25% discount to their existing contracts through the end of 2019, with agreed-upon contract extensions.

“We understand this may be a difficult time for Arrow customers,” Bankaci said, “but CyberCrunch is here to make the transition for Arrow customers seamless, efficient and cost effective. We have set up a hotline for Arrow customers to call with questions and to receive their 25% discount.”

Arrow customers are asked to call CyberCrunch at: 1-866-925-2354, ext. 100.

CyberCrunch competitors, including ERI, Ingram Micro and Advanced Technology Recycling, offered similar services to Arrow customers.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
