SYRACUSE, N.Y., Nov. 28, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- LIFECYCLExpress®, a division of CXtec® that specializes in IT asset management and e-scrap recycling, received its designation as a Certified Electronics Recycler® this month.
In order to receive this designation, LIFECYCLExpress implemented quality, environmental health and safety (QEH&S) systems and received certifications in two e-scrap industry standards: Responsible Recycling (R2) and the Recycling Industry Operating Standard (RIOS).
Under its Responsible Recycling certification, LIFECYCLExpress must adhere to all electronics recycling legal requirements and implement strict data destruction procedures, as well as establish a reuse and recovery hierarchy of responsible materials management. The certification also calls for refurbishing and properly testing reusable equipment and components.
The RIOS certification calls for an integrated management system that focuses on continual improvement of quality, environmental, health and safety performance.
"Becoming a Certified Electronics Recycler assures customers that they can trust us to handle their e-scrap in a safe, secure and environmentally friendly way," says Peter E. Belyea, President of CXtec. "It removes the uncertainty organizations have in finding a reliable, responsible e-scrap partner."
LIFECYCLExpress is one of just one of 22 companies designated a Certified Electronics Recycler and the only R2/RIOS facility in New York State that is also ISO 9001:2008-certified.
