Powerhouse Recycling plans expansion, adding workers

A local company in Salisbury is expanding and will be holding a job fair on Saturday to look for workers for warehouse positions.

PowerHouse Recycling, Inc. (PHR) was founded in 2008 to deliver electronic recycling solutions and the resultant recycled raw materials and salvageable components, to the business-to-business and business-to-consumer marketplace.

PHR is a fully permitted recycling facility located in Salisbury, NC.

In a news release provided to WBTV, the company noted that PHR is a "woman owned electronic recycling company which provides a responsible, audited, & environmentally sound method of disposal by salvaging the basic commodities from unusable electronics."

"We specialize in recycling surplus and obsolete electronic equipment such as: computers, monitors, office equipment, consumer electronics, etc."

The company's main business and expertise, however, is the recycling and recovery of bulk commodities into reusable products.

"We incorporate a full circle approach to recycling, with a 0% landfill goal. We have strategically aligned ourselves with business partners who reuse our remanufactured bulk commodities," the release said.

"We are looking for committed individuals with strong work ethics and positive attitudes to work in a team environment to contribute to our impact on recycling efforts in our community."

Powerhouse Recycling, Inc is creating 30 new positions immediately with intentions on expanding more in the near future.

"Currently we are hiring for Warehouse positions including Dismantlers, Processors and PC Technicians. Pay is DOE," the release stated.

The job fair will be held Saturday from 10:00 am until 2:00 pm at 220 Ryan Patrick Drive in Salisbury.
