Metech Recycling Awarded e-Stewards® Certification
Worcester, MA – March 11, 2011 Metech Recycling, a national leader in electronic waste recycling, announced it was awarded e-Stewards Certification. The e-Stewards Certification was created by the Basel Action Network (BAN), a non-profit organization focused on preventing irresponsible trade in toxic wastes. Metech Recycling is the seventh recycling company in the U.S. to achieve the e-Stewards Certification following rigorous, independent audits conducted at its facilities. The e-Stewards Certification enables Metech Recycling to serve companies seeking electronics recycling services certified to the world’s top e-waste recycling standard.”
“We have been looking forward to e-Stewards Certification ever since we agreed to be an e-Stewards Founder when the program was first formed,” stated Chris Ryan, President of Metech Recycling. “I am proud of our Compliance, Quality & Sustainability team that was able to demonstrate to the auditors Metech Recycling’s commitment and implementation of the e-Stewards Standard which is really the gold standard in our industry.”
The e-Stewards Standard is consistent with international trade rules such as the Basel Convention and includes ISO 14001 Certification as well. It specifically prohibits export of hazardous waste from developed to developing countries. The Standard also prohibits toxic waste from being disposed of in solid waste landfills and incinerators and the use of prison labor in the recycling of electronics. Finally, it maintains strong standards to protect worker health and safety.
“We are delighted to see Metech Recycling add its name to the growing list of electronics recycling companies recognized as industry leaders. They are among those recyclers that are willing to go the extra mile to be truly socially and environmentally responsible with their customer’s electronic waste,” said BAN Executive Director, Jim Puckett.
