Recycle Across America Joins R2 Recycling Leader Program

Recycle Across AmericaRecycle Across America is the newest group to join the R2 Recycling Leader program, which is designed to support efforts by companies and organizations to advance the responsible reuse and recycling of used electronics.

RAA is a nonprofit that has developed a standardized labeling system for recycling bins to help eliminate the public confusion surrounding recycling.

As part of its participation in the program, RAA will work with Sustainable Electronics Recycling International to develop education and outreach materials covering electronics repair and recycling, as well as provide guidance on strategies for outreach and communication. SERI is the housing body for the R2 Standard for electronics recycling.

RAA joins a coalition of 10 R2 Recycling Leader partners: DirecTV, Goodwill Industries International, Greeneye Partners, Keep America Beautiful, Microsoft, Panasonic, Sony America, SourceAmerica, Wistron Corporation and Xerox.

Participating partners make a commitment to support sustainable electronics recycling, as well as consider R2 certification when choosing a recycling partner. R2 Leaders also take a leadership role in a project to advance responsible reuse and/or recycling around the world, such as funding pilot projects for responsible recycling in developing countries, or creating new programs for electronics collection, refurbishment or recycling.

The R2 Standard was created in 2008 through a multi-stakeholder process that included the EPA, electronics manufacturers, recycling companies, non-profit organizations, and other groups. Electronics recycling and refurbishment facilities certified to the R2 Standard adhere to best-practices in worker health and safety, environmental protection, chain-of-custody reporting, data security, and other areas.

Worldwide, 600 facilities are certified to the R2 Standard in 17 countries.
