CoastTec is an APC UPS reuse and remanufacturing facility. We only purchase UPS units and associated battery cartridges. We accept complete UPS units and also individual battery cartridges if received at recycler separately from units (as pictured on last three pages of CoastTec APC Unit Picture Reference Guide). Our tier rate structure is based on a hierarchy of units that have potential for reuse and remanufacturing.
Pricing tiers for recyclers
CoastTec pays per pound based on total unit weight, not packing material (i.e. skids, cardboard…). Pricing is based on units being intact and containing batteries and battery cartridges. Per pound rate is based on sort capability of recycler.
Tier 1 APC REUSE
If recycler can sort APC Units to CoastTec APC Unit Picture Reference Guide OR green models on CoastTec APC Unit Model List (both are APC items with potential for reuse) CoastTec pays Tier 1 pricing. Contact us for current pricing. Units must be 90% tier 1 criteria and have batteries to qualify for Tier 1 APC REUSE pricing.
Tier 2 APC UNSORTED
If recycler can sort Units only to APC Manufactured Units (mix of APC items with potential for reuse and APC scrap items) CoastTec pays Tier 2 pricing. Contact us for current pricing. Units must be 90% APC units and have batteries to qualify for Tier 2 APC UNSORTED pricing.
Tier 3 UNSORTED UPS
If recycler sorts only to UPS units (mix of APC Manufactured Units and Non-APC Manufactured Units) CoastTec pays Tier 3 pricing. Contact us for current pricing. Units must be 50% APC units and have batteries to qualify for Tier 3 UNSORTED UPS pricing.
