Is Your E-Waste Part of the Solution?

According to a recent report by “Solving the E-Waste Problem (StEP) Initiative”, a coalition of United Nations agencies, governments, non-profits, and science organizations, the amount of e-waste generated will increase by a third in just the next five years.

And, unfortunately, much of the e-waste ends up in poor countries, polluting water and food supplies and contaminating poor workers that strip the waste for precious metals without protection from the hazardous chemicals and materials.  If your e-waste is being picked up for free, chances are it’s being dumped.

Your, e-waste, however, can be part of the solution.  By only working with certified e-waste recyclers and handlers.  Look for the e-Stewards and R2 certifications, along with ISO 14001 credentials.

For our customers in the New York metro area, we partner with The 4th Bin for responsible e-waste recycling.  Not in the area?  Contact The 4th Bin; they will help you find an e-Steward certified e-waste processor near you.
