March 15, 2011 - PRLog -- Eco International, Vestal NY, is excited to announce that it has received approval from the State of Connecticut's Department of Environmental Protection to serve as a "covered electronic recycler" under the state's Electronics Recycling Law and as part of the Connecticut Statewide Electronics Recycling Program.

Eco International, an ISO 14001:2004 Certified Recycler, will offer its electronic recycling services to benefit manufacturers, municipalities and individual households throughout the state of Connecticut. Only approved 'Covered Electronic Recyclers' are authorized to bill manufacturers of covered electronic devices (CEDs) generated by Connecticut households.

“Eco International has serviced towns and municipalities in Connecticut for more than a decade and we are pleased that the Department of Environmental Protection, (DEP), has taken a very active role in administering their e-waste regulations”, said Jay Simonis, Eco International’s COO. "The forward thinking approach the DEP has taken in selecting recyclers, affords the towns and municipalities the ability to select a responsible recycler who not only keeps electronics out of the landfills, omnsq but keeps them from being exported.”

Under the Connecticut law, manufacturers of computers, computer monitors, printers, and televisions, must participate in a state-wide electronics recycling program established by the Connecticut Department of Environmental Protection to implement and finance the collection, transportation, and recycling of such items from Connecticut households.

Eco International is known for its nationwide commitment to responsible recycling showing exemplary concern and corporate practices for people and planet. Eco has diverted over 200 MILLION POUNDS of electronic waste out of the landfills since 2000 using a de-manufacturing process that is free from chemicals and allows for maximum recovery of generated materials.
