Responsible Recycling

An Overview

Responsible Recycling” or R2:2013 is a leading standard for electronics repair and recycling. The R2 Responsible Recycling Certification requirements have been set on the foundation of Environmental, Health and Safety Management system (EHSMS). It requires responsible management of electronic materials through the entire recycling process, prohibits illegal export of materials, and ensures recycling processes are safe and secure.

Therefore, achieving R2 Recycling Certification demonstrates the facility’s commitment and adherence to the Environment, Human health and Safetyencouraging recycling, reselling and refurbishing practices and procedures.

The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), in 2013, recognized the need for an industry specific certification addressing all of the operational and materials management concerns and encouraged a broad stakeholder group to develop what has come to be known as the Responsible Recycler Practices Standard, or the R2 Standard. It is an important tool for the e-recycling industry for managing its unwanted used electronics efficiently and also protects its employees from the hazards associated with electronic equipment.
