INTRODUCTION
 
This document sets forth responsible recycling (“R2”) practices for use in accredited certificationprograms that assess electronics recyclers’ environmental, health and safety, and security practices
1
.Customers want a simple means of verifying that an electronics recycling company is forthright andresponsible about how it manages used and end-of-life electronic equipment. At the same time,responsible electronics recyclers want a means of highlighting their values and performance to customers.The purpose of this document is to take a first step in addressing this situation – to develop a commonly-accepted set of R2 practices for the electronics recycling industry. Accredited certification programs—byverifying an electronics recycler adheres to these R2 practices—will enable customers to make betterinformed decisions and have increased confidence that their end-of-life electronic equipment will be dealtwith in a responsible manner.The R2 practices set forth herein are not legal requirements and do not replace electronics recyclers’ legalobligations. Electronics recyclers that adhere to this set of R2 practices are doing so on a voluntary basis.If a requirement of this document conflicts with an applicable legal requirement, the recycler must adhereto the legal requirement.
