E-Recyclers And You

Do you really know where your e-waste is going?

As the e-scrap problem becomes ever more serious, the future of the environment should be of paramount importance to all of us. Unfortunately, lack of regulatory power in many parts of the world has resulted in some unregistered, unscrupulous collectors depositing hazardous e-waste in landfills in underdeveloped nations. This makes the reasons your business needs an R2:2013 certfied e-recycler, even clearer. Don’t be a part of an environmental problem; be a part of the solution of sustainability with OER.

Take a look at the following set of questions regarding your current e-waste program. If you can’t confidently answer “Yes” to all of these concerns, it may be time to Contact OER about helping to protect the environment.
