EPC Electronics Recycling Center
SCC CAPS associates drove out to Wright City, Missouri to take a tour of the EPC Electronics Recycling Center. EPC's Wright City recycling facility features a $1.7 million magnetic optical sorter shredding machine, which includes smart technology, automating the process of sorting, and decommissioning computer equipment. It eliminates the human risk associated with decommissioning. Overall, the associates experienced a very educational and engaging tour through the facility and even learned of a few career opportunities that EPC offers.
At the end of February, the SCC CAPS Program is holding their parent-instructor-associate conferences. This is a great opportunity for associates to sit down with their parents and instructors to reflect on their internship learning so far. Associates will communicate to their parents about their accomplishments and their goals for their internship through a Google Slide presentation.
