Posted:

FORREST CITY (Times-Herald) - An electronics recycling company says it will open a processing facility in Forrest City, creating up to 75 jobs.

AMT E-Waste Solutions says it will open an electronics waste processing facility in the former Forrest City Grocery warehouse on Scott Street. The company says it will give residents a safe method to dispose of electronics, such as televisions, computers and cell phones.

Chief Operating Officer Matt Person says the company will focus on serving eastern Arkansas, western Tennessee and northern Mississippi. He said that the company intends to serve the Memphis area, but they wanted to keep the jobs in Arkansas.

The company plans to create 50 to 75 jobs at the facility. Person says the facility should open within the next year.
