WAUCONDA, Ill. - Feb. 16, 2016 - Point of Sale Remarketing Group (POSRG), one of North America’s leading Point of Sale (POS) hardware solution and service providers, announced today they are officially R2 certified in responsible electronics recycling by Sustainable Electronics Recycling International (SERI).
The R2 (Responsible Recycling) Standard, which also encompasses the ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 certifications, is the leading certification of the electronics recycling industry. This voluntary certification provides a set of strict procedural, safety and documentation requirements in relation to environmental and public health, worker safety and electronics recycling security. Rigorous audits are conducted, ensuring quality and safety standards are continuously maintained.
In September of 2015, POSRG received NAID AAA certification in data destruction, making them the only known POS solutions provider to now possess the R2 certification and NAID AAA certification in data destruction. This puts them in the unique position to offer comprehensive, in-house lifecycle solutions to their customers in accordance with the highest industry standards in both electronics recycling and data destruction.
The R2 Standard was created to address the need to identify and monitor best practices in the electronics recycling and repair industry with regard to resource preservation, the well-being of the environment and the health and safety of workers and communities. The Standard was developed by a team of key stakeholders, including representatives from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), state agency regulators, businesses in the industry and consumers. The Standard is housed by SERI, a non-profit organization dedicated to the responsible reuse, repair and recycling of electronics.
