R2v3 (The Sustainable Electronics Reuse & Recycling R2 Standard v3)
R2v3 requires e-recyclers to assure that more toxic material streams are managed safely and responsibly by downstream vendors-all the way to final disposition (end of life). It also prohibits e-recyclers and their downstream vendors from exporting these more toxic materials to countries that have enacted laws making their imports illegal. The R2v3 Standard sets forth requirements relating to environmental, health, safety, and security aspects of electronics recycling.
The R2v3 Standard focuses on the performance of electronics recyclers in the areas of:
· Environmental and public health
· Worker health and safety
· Security (data and facility)
· The whole of the recycling process and chain of custody of materials through final disposition
Contracting with an electronics recycler that is R2v3 Certified means peace of mind in knowing that your company’s IT assets are being managed by a recycler that has demonstrated they have a system in place to properly handle materials according to the R2v3 Standard.
You can be assured that when you work with T3, recycling print cartridges, recycling toner, and disposing of electronics are achieved using sound and safe environmental methods and practice.
