Due to China Import Ban Surplus Exchange forced to implement Modest Price Structure

Categories: Uncategorized

To our much valued patrons, corporate, and community partners,

China recently placed a ban on recycle materials that has severely impacted where Surplus Exchange generated much of it’s operating income.  Since our inception in 1985 our mission has been to keep electronic wastes our of our landfills and provide an avenue for re-use and low cost electronics to the community.  We want to continue that mission, but to do so we must look for ways to replace the income we have lost from commodity recovery in the materials we recycle.   You will see on our fees have increased slightly to help soften the blow.  Fees however will not be enough to replace the decline in the commodities market.  In the coming months Surplus Exchange will embark on a suite of services for both private and public consumption.  Services such as Certified and Documented Data Destruction will be a part of our suite of offerings.  We are looking for corporate partners to further our mission and help expand the reach of Surplus Exchange.  As we continue to develop our service offerings, for our current customers nothing will change immediately.  We will meet with you to determine how we can best serve your needs and tailor service to meet and exceed expectations.  Moving forward our new fee structure will go in effect on Tuesday October, 16th.  This will not impact scheduled events.

We need our loyal customers now more than ever.  If you haven’t come by 518 Santa Fe in awhile, please do.  We have “new” stuff daily from office furniture to pcs and laptops, to servers, server racks, and even office supplies.  We will gladly accept cash donations on site.

We all here at Surplus Exchange SINCERELY THANK YOU for you understanding and continued support
