DISH Network and Reworx partner to recycle electronics and create second chances

With aggressive sustainability goals, DISH Network chose Reworx to handle its recycling needs in 2013. Since that time, Reworx has recycled more than 2.5 million pounds of satellite receivers and other obsolete material. That is enough material to fill about ½ of the Georgia Aquarium and can stretch almost 194 miles! The energy savings of not having to find, mine and produce new steel, copper and other natural resources are enough to power more than 2,200 homes for one year!


DISH also has implemented a Cardboard Reduction Program that has saved more than 1 million pounds of cardboard every year – roughly the equivalent of 90 African elephants!


The partnership with DISH has enabled Reworx to create and maintain 10 jobs for persons with disabilities or other barriers to employment. And the community saves $5.85 for each dollar of labor spent. This is a partnership that works.


Reworx is proud to offer DISH Triple the benefits to support One common purpose.

Together, Georgia Power and Reworx created a triple bottom line:

  • An economic impact to the community of $265,230 by taking these individuals off public assistance rolls
    and turning them into tax paying citizens
  • A social impact by putting 9 people with disabilities to work,
    resulting in independence, confidence - and a paycheck
  • An environmental impact by keeping 8 million pounds of electronics,
    metals, plastics and more out of landfills.

Since WellStar Health System began partnering with Reworx, they've recycled more than 150,000 pounds of our used electronics.

"It gives me great satisfaction to know we’re creating jobs for people with disabilities while protecting the planet, proving every day that we can all do well by doing good!"
