Certified Recycling

Tri-Star Recycling holds several industry certifications to ensure your company’s surplus technology assets are safely and securely recycled or repurposed.

As most of the world’s businesses move at least partially online, the problem of disposing of the electronic devices needed to sustain it all grows. There are multiple issues with disposing of your company’s old computers and other electronic equipment, including data security and the environmental threat posed by the physical disposal of these components.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recommends all electronic recycling companies become certified. This is accomplished by demonstrating an ability to meet specific requirements for the management and safe recycling of electronics to a third-party auditor. This auditor must be accredited and operate independently.

ISO 45001:2018 and ISO 14001:2015

Other certifications are valuable in the electronic recycling industry to ensure that the electronics are recycled safely, and the workforce is protected. TSR recently renewed their ISO 45001:2018 and ISO 14001:2015.

ISO 45001:2018

This certification pertains to the safety conditions for employees involved in sorting, dismantling, resale, and reusing electronic equipment and associated supplies. By agreeing to follow these standards, TSR improves occupational health and safety, eliminates hazards, and minimizes risks for their workers.

ISO 14001:2015

This certification is intended for use by an organization seeking to manage its environmental responsibilities systematically, which contributes to the environmental pillar of sustainability.
