Responsible Recycling

We are in the process of obtaining our R2 certification. R2 Standard is a way to identify, aggregate, distribute, and monitor best-practices in electronics repair and recycling.

“The R2 Standard creates market incentives for recycling facilities to implement environmental, health, and safety procedures that directly benefit their workers, the communities in which they operate, and the environment. The R2 Standard helps facilities avoid "reinventing the wheel" by providing consistent knowledge and guidance for electronics repair and recycling that can be applied to any facility, anywhere.”
