Recycling Fakers In Atlanta Metro

We have found several dozen entities listed in various media which promote themselves as eWaste recyclers in the Atlanta Metro area. We want to take a look at a few to give you some idea of who are real, and who are "All Hat, No Cattle".
• Hensley Industries
Website: www.hensley-ind.com
Email: info/sale/service/support:/hensley-ind.com
Address as Listed: 81 Kelli Clark Court, Cartersville, GA, 30121

Review: The information on their website appears to have been last updated in 2002. Their "East Cost Operations" shows an address that does not exist. The information on the website says they are one of the oldest and largest recyclers in the United States; they are not. They are not even included in the top twenty eWaste recyclers in the Atlanta Metro area!

Their Internet registration information shows the registrant contact to be: Brent Sorchik, (bsorchik@yahoo.com) at a company called: Sybertek Solutions Inc, at 2774 N. Cobb Parkway, Ste 109-350, Kennesaw, GA, 30152, with phone number: 770-621-5050. When you dial that number you get Allied Enforcement Solutions LLC. Using Google Earth, the address provided appears to be a vacant lot. According to the GA Secretary of State, Mr. Sorchik has offices at: 5025 Wellcrest Court, Kennesaw, GA, 30152.. Mr. Sorchik is listed as: CEO, CFO, Secretary, etc. on the registration papers for the companies.

If you do a search on the primary listed "Main Office Phone Number" of 770-975-4528, you get no web-based reference on 411.com nor Google. If you do a search on any of the other phone numbers provided for Hensley Industries from their paperwork, nothing relavant shows up. You do get listings for Hensley Industries in Texas, which is a manufacturer of heavy (earth moving) equipment. If you do a Google search on anything related to any of Mr. Sorchik's companies, you get nothing that supports their website claims.

Also on the Hensley Ind. website, they claim they are "EPA Certified". For a fuller description of EPA "Certification" go here, or here.. Briefly, electronic recycling facilities located in Georgia generally have no legal authority to provide EPA compliance certification for eWaste recycling. According to the Georgia Department of Natural Resources, Molam International is the only EPA certified recycler in Georgia. None of Mr. Sorchik's companies is even listed in the GA DNR Recyclers List.

From the Georgia DNR comes this caveat:
"Some recyclers claim to be "EPA Permitted," “EPA Certified,” or “EPA Approved.” However, the EPA has no permitting, certification, or approval process for electronics recyclers. Many times when these recyclers are asked for copies of their "EPA Permit," “Certification,” or “Approval” they offer a copy of an EPA ID number. This typically begins with three letters, including the state initials followed by nine numbers. This is merely an EPA-issued number that is required for manifesting hazardous waste for shipment. Anyone who generates hazardous waste must have one to transport material for disposal. It is not a permit to recycle electronics.
