PRC Signs on as e-Stewards® Enterprise

PRC has further committed to the safe, ethical and responsible recycling of electronic waste through recognition by the Basel Action Network (BAN) as an e-Stewards® Enterprise. The designation recognizes cities, companies and nonprofits that take concrete measures to eliminate the export of hazardous electronic waste (e-waste) to developing countries by using Certified e-Stewards Recyclers to manage their electronic waste.

“PRC joins companies such as Alcoa, Boeing, and Samsung and other environmental stewards as a committed partner ensuring we continue to doing everything we can to responsibly manage electronic waste,” said PRC Co-Director Justin Stockdale. "The public can feel confident that their material and data is being safely, ethically and responsibly recycled when dealing with PRC.”

The e-Stewards designation recognizes organizations that take concrete measures to properly handle electronic waste, and its rigorous standards evaluate operations, systems and people to demonstrate conformance to the highest standard for responsibility in the industry.

“Until recently, the e-Stewards Enterprise model solely recognized corporations and local governments," said Stockdale.  "But PRC is proud to become one of the first nonprofits to receive e-Stewards certification under the recently expanded program.”
