electronic waste compliance: the basics

Ewaste is ugly. Ewaste is hazardous. Unfortunately, ewaste is shipped overseas by many recyclers, causing irreversible damage to human beings and the environment. Yet many organizations unknowingly choose recyclers who ship obsolete electronics overseas with no regard to their final destination. Employing the use of a recycler who ships overseas dramatically increases the risk of environmental liability. All organizations, either morally or legally, should develop a compliance plan for the disposal of retired electronic assets to avoid fines, litigation and even possible imprisonment.
eForce Compliance assures our clients that the highest environmental value is achieved and that all obsolete material is demanufactured onsite.
