What is an R2 2013 Certified Recycler?
An R2 Certified recycler is a company that has been certified by the Responsible Recycling (R2) Practices Standard as meeting certain guidelines and requirements for responsible recycling practices. The R2 standard is a set of guidelines that are designed to help recyclers manage the environmental, health, safety, and security risks associated with the handling and processing of electronic waste.
To be R2 Certified, a recycler must demonstrate that it follows best practices in the handling and processing of electronic waste, including the proper handling of hazardous materials, the use of data destruction practices to protect sensitive information, and the implementation of environmental controls to minimize pollution. R2 Certified recyclers are also required to undergo periodic audits to ensure that they continue to meet the standards set forth by the R2 standard.
R2 Certification is widely recognized as a mark of excellence in the electronic waste recycling industry, and it is often required by companies and organizations that are looking to dispose of their electronic waste in a responsible and environmentally-friendly manner.
