Our Certifications


Because of our certifications, we not only promise that we steward your old, unwanted electronics with the highest commitment to the environment and human health. We prove it.

This trio of certifications ensures our customers that we follow recognized international standards for environmental stewardship, health and safety, and data security. Our adherence to these strict requirements is ensured through annual third-party audits.
