Getting Started

Its simple! Contact your local Kester Representative or Customer Service at or by calling 800.637.6161.

ECS will need your complete company information, to service your recycling needs. You will be asked what type of materials you wish to send to ECS for recycling, so be thorough in your explanation.  All materials should be shipped in DOT approved containers and fixed to a pallet.

ECS has a flexible approach to doing business so, feel free to ship your materials to us or ECS can make the necessary freight arrangements.  Now, with a 500/lb minimum shipment of solder dross, the freight is FREE!

It should be noted that when your company sends material to ECS, that best recycling practices dictate accumulating as much volume as possible per shipment.  This reduces overall freight costs & processing costs, providing you with the most economical settlement/invoice.

Companies generating solder contaminated debris from their SMT Processes will be required to fill out a "Material Profile Sheet" which can be sent to you via fax or email.  There are two forms available.  The "ECS Material Profile" for the Terrell, Texas Facility can be found at:  The "ECS Material Profile" for the Santa Clara, California Facility can be found at: Help in filling out this profile is always available by contacting an ECS Regional Sales Manager.  Once approval has been given by our Environmental, Health, and Safety Staff, ECS will be able to receive and process this material.
