Sometimes the hardest challenges can lead to the biggest breakthroughs. Nowhere is that more evident than with our E-Cycling programs.
Here, we're building our capacity to take on difficult-to-recycle materials such as electronics and partnering with our customers and outside experts to do it safely.
By 2012, our network included more than 200 collection depots in North America, gathering phones, batteries, laptops and other manufactured products. From there, eight Product Recovery Centers process what's been gathered - all have earned the Responsible Recycling (R2) and
E-Cycling Industry Operating Standard (RIOS) certification are eStewards and ISO 9001 certified.
The U.S. market for electronics recycling stands at about $5 billion a year
About 130,000 computers in the U.S. are thrown away each day - nearly 100% of their content is capable of being recycled
Our LampTracker service provides mail-in containers to safely transport and recycle fluorescent bulbs and tubes
