E-Waste is also a major environmental problem, accounting for 70% of the toxins entering landfills including substances like arsenic, cadmium, chromium, lead, and mercury, and it requires verifiable processing by e-Stewards and/or Certified R2 recyclers to protect human health and the environment while supporting a circular economy.
"TERRA and Done with IT are growing rapidly and actively seeking more certified recycling partners like CEWS," Napoli added.
