Over the course of several months, Environmental Office Solutions put in place a transparent verification system to manage its processes for recycling of used print cartridges, cell phones and small electronic devices in the most ecologically responsible manner.
“We successfully demonstrated that we have put in place the processes and procedures to handle material properly and provide a safe workplace environment. This certification is the result of several months of intensive work in preparation for two in-depth audits. These certifications support our ongoing mission and long-term commitment to the environment and this industry,” explained COO Terry Stoddard.
Environmental Office Solutions is the largest print cartridge and cell phone waste recycler of its kind in Connecticut and the only waste recycler of its kind in the state with these certifications.
R2 Certification provides important benefits to the consumer, including:
+ The reduction of environmental and human health impacts from improper recycling;
+ Increased access to quality reusable and refurbished equipment to those who need them; and
+ The reduction of energy use and other environmental impacts associated with mining and processing of virgin materials to conserve our limited natural resources.
