Electronics recycling plant certified to Responsible Recycling Practices standard.
Sims Recycling Solutions (SRS), with its Americas division headquartered in Chicago, has achieved Responsible Recycling Practices for Electronics Recyclers (R2) certification at its facility in Dallas. The standard establishes provisions for environmental, worker health and safety and security practices and is supported by major electronic original equipment manufacturers, the Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries and the Information Technology Industry Council, among others.
"Sims Recycling Solutions will continue to implement and maintain the other top industry certifications and standards, such as e-Stewards, to ensure that our environmental, employee health and safety and security procedures are first-rate," says Steve Skurnac, president, SRS, Americas. "We have many individuals who work hard to maintain these high standards because of our commitment to protect our employees and customers, the residents of the communities where we do business and the environment."
SRS announced its decision to pursue e-Stewards certification in July 2012.
SRS offers comprehensive electronics recycling services out of its 51 owned and operated sites across the globe. In America, Sims Recycling Solutions operates 15 sites in Arizona, California, Florida, Illinois, Maryland, Nevada, New Jersey, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Ontario and Quebec.
