The pioneer in electronic recycling, CRS (Creative Recycling Systems) has been awarded the e-Stewards® Electronic Recycling Certification for its recycling facility in North Carolina.

Ban’s E-Stewards Certification for Creative Recycling
e-Stewards certification is a globally acknowledged certification program crafted by the BAN (Basel Action Network). The program receives support from industry leaders and several environmental groups. e-Stewards certification is the only recycling standard for e-waste, which guarantees that toxic waste will be responsibly disposed.
The certification ensures that e-waste is not discarded in landfills or transported to developing nations. The certification program includes measures to prevent data leakage from electronic gadgets.
The e-Stewards certification is only awarded to electronic recyclers who follow socially and environmental responsible approaches in hazardous waste recovery processes. The program has been backed by major corporations and environmental organizations.
The certification program is third party audited, USEPA supported and approved by the Greenpeace USA. The Electronics Take Back Coalition, NRDC (Natural Resources Defense Council), Sierra Club, and several other environmental organizations actively support the program. e-Stewards Enterprises such as Samsung, Capital One Financial Corp., Alcoa, Wells Fargo, and Bank of America also extend their support to this program.
