Clover’s Office Products Recycling Associates (OPRA) Celebrates 20 Years of Putting Customers First

CHICAGO, IL – December 10, 2015 – Office Products Recycling Associates (OPRA), a Clover Imaging Group company and the industry leader in the purchasing of empty inkjet and toner cartridges, cell phones, and other small electronics, is celebrating its 20 year anniversary.

OPRA began in 1995 in Kansas City, MO as a one-stop-shop for businesses looking to recycle empty printer cartridges. As a small business itself, OPRA was keenly aware of the cash flow issues many businesses face. As a result, it made quick payment turnaround — a key element of its value proposition — and paired faster payment times with the industry’s only customer loyalty program. Over the years, OPRA expanded its purchasing power to include cell phones, fusers, smartphones and other small electronics.

“Our customers know they can go elsewhere to sell their empties and electronics, but they also know that OPRA offers them the best terms, fastest payments, and a strong customer loyalty program. We began as a small business in a 15,000 square foot facility in Kansas City and thanks to our customer loyalty and Clover we’re the industry leader in buyback,” says Angela Walton, Vice President of OPRA.

OPRA joined Clover in 2011 as part of a strategic acquisition to boost both companies’ buyback efforts. Under Clover, OPRA doubled in size and realized other benefits such as multiple inspection facilities, in-depth core knowledge about the industry, and added environmental certifications.

OPRA offers a fully-featured website where vendors can sell empties and electronics, request pickups, check loyalty point values, track receipts, download reports, and track payments. Customers also have access to live chat, free recycling tips, and marketing collateral.
