The goal is to prevent improper disposal of electronic devices.

Massey Services, Orlando, Florida, teamed up with Hunter Industries, San Marcos, California, to recycle replaced irrigation controllers to prevent electronic waste.

The program focuses on improving landscape water efficiency by identifying various maintenance issues, system design enhancements and equipment upgrades, including new controllers. The goal of the recycling program is to prevent improper disposal of electronic devices, which can pollute our environment.

“We are delighted to partner with Hunter Industries on this initiative,” says Massey Services President Tony Massey. “Massey Services is committed to protecting our environment and we utilize a variety of sustainability practices for all of our services. Our recycling program was championed by our Quality Assurance team and is another example of our commitment to environmental responsibility.”

Prior to the launch of the initiative, Massey Services had replaced and disposed of more than 1,500 irrigation controllers in 2020. Replaced irrigation controllers will now be shipped to a nonprofit organization that recycles electronic material to the highest environmental standard.
