Investors, business partners, media outlets, and folks from the community are all invited to tour the facility and meet the staff behind the green 'e.' "This event represents an incredibly important milestone in our journey to becoming a world-class organization, and it is a true testament to the tireless efforts and devotion from our talented staff," said Martin Nielson, Founder and CEO of eWaste Systems. "The facility itself boasts some of the most advanced processing techniques in the industry and combines all of EWSI technologies under one roof and we are already seeing a profound improvement in our capabilities, functionality, and efficiencies."

For the event, Martin Nielson will be joined by Julie Peterson, President of eWaste Systems Cincinnati and Director of Operations for EWSI, Dan Feeney, head of eManagement, Susan Johnson, Treasurer & Vice President, Doyle Webster, Mayor of Springdale, the Chief of Police, the Chief of Fire, and several members of the City Council.
