WEST CHICAGO, Ill., June 27, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Sims Recycling Solutions, a leading provider of global IT asset disposition (ITAD) services, has partnered with Sustainable Electronics Recycling International (SERI), DirectTV and Green Eye Partners to assist three electronics recycling sites in Latin America in preparing for their R2 certification audits. Sims Recycling Solutions specifically helped with language translations and internal audits of recycling facilities in preparation for their R2 certification.
"Assisting in the implementation of the R2 certification at these three facilities is very significant, as it is another step forward in expanding and promoting responsible reuse and recycling around the world," stated Steve Skurnac, President of Sims Recycling Solutions. "As an R2 Leader, we hope to lead by example to promote sustainability and responsible IT asset disposition in all geographies."
This leadership project has helped educate and support the R2 standard in Latin America. For these sites located in Chile, Ecuador and Colombia, the process of becoming R2 certified required dedication and commitment, but in the long-term will provide increased opportunities.
Sims Recycling Solutions achieved the R2 certification at their sites in Australia (Sydney); India (Chennai); Singapore; United Arab Emirates (Dubai); United States (Chicago, Nashville, Sacramento, Tampa and Tucson) and in the United Kingdom (Stalybridge). Last year Sims Recycling Solutions' facility operating in the United Arab Emirates earned the distinction of being the first R2 certified facility in the Middle East.
