e-stewardsThis week, AnythingIT Inc. announced it has completed a successful surveillance of E-Stewards certification for a second consecutive year.

e-Stewards Certification is rapidly emerging as the leading global program designed to enable individuals and organizations who dispose of their old electronic equipment to easily identify recyclers that adhere to the highest standard of environmental responsibility and worker protection. Certification prohibits all toxic waste from being disposed of in landfills and incinerators and requires full compliance with existing international hazardous waste treaties for export. Certified companies are specifically prohibited from exporting hazardous waste to developing countries or from using prison labor to recycle electronics, which often contain embedded sensitive data.

“We are really pleased with another successful audit. AnythingIT is dedicated to providing the highest level of global environmental sustainability and security. Our e-Steward certification reflects that”, says David Bernstein, CEO at AnythingIT.
