All Green Electronics Recycling Gets Certified, Recognized in Tech Industry for High Standards in E-Waste Management-e-Stewards, ISO 14001 and R2
TUSTIN, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
All Green Electronics Recycling, a leading electronics recycler
specializing in secure IT asset disposition and data destruction
services, has received three major certifications representing high
standards in service and practice: e-Stewards, ISO 14001
and R2. e-Stewards Certification and R2 (Responsible Recycling),
help generators of electronic waste identify companies that ensure that
all assets will be reused or recycled in a responsible and
environmentally friendly manner.
All Green Electronics Recycling's completion of these certifications
comes on the heels of new federal directives requiring all e-waste
generated by federal agencies and by U.S. government contractors working
with taxpayer-subsidized electronics to be directed to certified
electronics recyclers. All Green's certifications ensure the highest
standards for responsible processing, including a guarantee that e-waste
does not end up in landfills, sensitive data is destroyed and workers
Arman Sadeghi, CEO of All Green, said he was inspired to enter the
e-waste business in 2008 after seeing the 60-Minutes episode where the
Basel Action Network (BAN) exposed the horrors of U.S. exported e-waste
poisoning people and the environment in developing countries. "Arman
contacted me asking what he could do to help address this issue and here
now is All Green Electronics Recycling, delivering responsible e-waste
management services," said Jim Puckett, Executive Director of BAN which
established the e-Stewards initiative.
Only a small number of e-waste recyclers in the world hold the
distinction of multiple certifications by a third-party audit. All Green
Electronics Recycling serves government and commercial entities
nationally and operates trucks in 48 states. Companies can request
pickup services directly at www.AllGreenRecycling.com
and consumers can find a list of drop off locations.
"These third-party audits hold our e-waste recycling and data
destruction practices to the highest standards and underscore our
mission to process end of life electronics responsibly," explained Arman
Sadeghi, CEO of All Green Electronics Recycling. "They also ensure that
our health and safety policies go well beyond those required by law.
When you consider the new U.S. federal directives and the increased pace
in which technology advances, this is near perfect timing in earning
these rigorous certifications."
